Slow Cooker Roast Beef and Gravy Recipe

Print Friendly

I can’t remember the last time I made roast beef!  My husband loves it, but the rest of the family isn’t too fond of it.  I decided to try a recipe that would make the roast beef and the gravy at the same time and it was delicious!  Just whip up some mashed potatoes and you’ve got a delicious meal with hardly any preparation!


Slow Cooker Roast Beef and Gravy Recipe:
(Makes 6 servings)

1 (3-5 pound) boneless beef chuck roast
2 (10.75 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1 1/4 cup water
Fresh parsley, optional

Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray and place roast inside.  In a mixing bowl, combine soup, soup mix and water.  Pour over roast and cover slow cooker with lid.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours.  Remove roast from slow cooker, slice and garnish with fresh parsley.  Whisk together gravy in the slow cooker and serve over roast and mashed potatoes.

      Sorry, may be a problem with your computer. We just checked it and it works fine. We haven’t had any other complaints. Not sure what the problem could be.

    Just had this tonight, yum! It was fantastic! One question… is that really what yours looked like after being in the slow cooker for so long? Mine was shreddable, not sliceable… =)

    I found this recipe on the web about 3 weeks ago. We used rump roast and it slices easily and not much fat. I use one family size can of mushroom soup and no water. It makes it’s own gravy and is delish! My favorite roast recipe…….

    Hello! This is going to seem like a stupid question but I have no idea how to make the gravy…how do you do it? (Esp. on a college kid budget!)

      Hi Teagan! In this recipe after you take the roast out you just kind of stir the remaining liquid together and serve it as the gravy. But when making gravy for other recipes you can thicken up the juices left from the meat by adding a water/flour mixture. You can also use corn starch as a thickener. We like to mix about 1/3 cup of flour with 1 cup of water and whisk together until smooth. Add this to about 1 1/2 cups of the meat juices and stir over med high heat stirring constantly until thickened. If it’s not thick enough, add a little more flour. Hope this helps.

        Thank you so much! After I posted I kind of thought it might be just mixing the juices that were combined, but I wanted to be sure! I am so excited to try this recipe and get some real meat back into my diet. I love your recipes!
