How To Make
Place liner in slow cooker, if using. Place roast in slow cooker and season each side with your preferred seasoning blend. Set slow cooker on high.
Add carrots and onions around the roast. Place lid on cooker.
* NOTE: Omit the carrots if you don't care for carrot flavor in your gravy.
In a medium bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup all purpose flour and one can of onion soup until no large lumps of flour remain; add remaining can of onion soup, whisking until well combined.
Pour soup mixture over roast and vegetables in slow cooker.
Place whole peeled potatoes around roast (on top of carrots and onions.) Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Place lid on slow cooker. Cook on high for about 5-6 hours, or on low for 8 hours (times are approximate and depends on size of roast and how hot your slow cooker gets.)
Serve hot, preferably with warm dinner rolls to sop up the gravy. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
