Crock Pot Roast & Gravy

3 lb. Rump Roast
2 Tbsp. Oil
1 Lipton Dry Onion Soup Mix
1 sm. can Cream of Mushroom
1/2 C. Water
Pepper to desire

Pour oil onto skillet and brown roast on all sides. Sprinkle with desired amount of pepper and place in a crock pot. With the remaining oil add water and grab a fork or whisk to stir around and grab the drippings from the browning.

Pour dry onion soup mix and cream of mushroom soup into crock pot. Stir around the roast a little. Add oil and water mixture and stir a little more.

Cook for 4-5 hours on high or 7-8 on low - stirring around occasionally and even turning the roast.

Serve with mashed potatoes as this makes the very best gravy. So simple and so tender and yummy. My little boy ate it up like crazy!

  1. I just tried your crockpot roast after experimenting with many other recipes. I love * love * love it! My family went nuts over this and I have never had an easier time making a roast. I also only needed it in the crock pot for 3 hours or so. Thanks again for the recipe. I will definately be back!
