Ingredients

  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (2 1/2 to 3 lb)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 lb small (1 1/2- to 2-inch) Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 1/2 lb carrots, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Progresso™ beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 can (10 1/2 oz) condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 package (1.1 oz) beefy onion soup mix
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In slow cooker, place beef. Sprinkle with pepper and salt. Place potatoes, carrots and garlic over beef. In medium bowl, mix broth, tomato paste, thyme, mushroom soup and onion soup mix with whisk until smooth. Pour over beef and vegetables.
  • 2
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until beef is tender. Remove beef from slow cooker to serving platter. Using slotted spoon, transfer vegetables to serving platter with beef; cover to keep warm.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water with whisk until smooth. Stir into liquid in slow cooker. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve gravy with beef and vegetables. Garnish with parsley.

  • At serving time, skip the cutting board and knife by snipping parsley with clean kitchen scissors.
  • We prefer to peel and cut our own carrots for pot roast, but to save time, you can substitute baby carrots instead.
  • Yukon Gold potatoes vary a lot in size. The best ones for this slow-cooker pot roast recipe are 1 1/2- to 2-inch potatoes. They should be big enough to stand up to 7 to 8 hours of cooking, but not so big that they have to be cut before adding to the slow cooker.
  • For the best texture, remove large pieces of fat and cartilage from the slow-cooker beef chuck roast and discard; cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces before serving.
