This was the first recipe my mother-in-law ever taught me to make for her darling boy. It's now the favorite of both of my sons. It makes the most delicious gravy! It's so simple that I almost feel guilty taking credit for how wonderful it is...almost.

This slow cooked pot roast was so incredibly easy to make and good. The addition of soup creates a creamy gravy. It's an easy weeknight meal to serve on a cold day. Some hot rolls would be delicious with this too.
