Pot roast is a classic dish composed of braised meat and vegetables in broth. Cream of mushroom soup turns a basic pot roast into a rich comfort meal that even your pickiest eaters will love. Using a slow cooker, which is a staple in many a modern mom's kitchen, means you spend less time monitoring the stove, and more time cuddling with the kids.
1 Wash the onions, carrots, mushrooms and potatoes. If any of the new potatoes seem too large, simply cut them in half. Leave the skin on the potatoes for added flavor and nutrition. Line the bottom of the slow cooker with the vegetables.
2 Season the outside of the roast with onion soup mix. Sprinkle remaining onion soup mix onto the vegetables in the slow cooker. Place the roast on top of the vegetables.
3 Top the roast with cream of mushroom soup.
4 Fill the slow cooker with water or vegetable broth until the top of the roast is covered, but not more than that. Don't want to over fill your slow cooker.
5 Seal the slow cooker and turn the temperature to low. Cook for 6 to 8 hours or until the roast is tender and pulls apart easily with a fork. Serve with whole grain rolls or biscuits to round out a perfect home-style meal.
