Dad's Crockpot Roast

A  roast is a treat for us.  We rarely have one but then we have cut down on meat, tremendously.  This was a Costco Kosher cut which was extremely reasonable in price.  I love Costco.  My husband made th is one and I was not around.  He deserve several pats on the back for a most delicious main dish that everyone loved.

Crockpot Roast Beef


2 onions sliced
1/2 pound button mushrooms
1 cup vegetable soup (organic)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
black pepper
You could use onion soup mix in place of the spices.

10 fingerling potatoes, added after beef is taken out of crockpot


After sprinkling seasoning all over the meat, sear it, in a separate pan, on the stove.

Place in crockpot.

Add mushrooms and onions.

Add the vegetable soup mixed with maple syrup, pouring it over the meat.

Cook on low for 8 hours.  It stayed overnight and I am not sure but it was between six to eight hours.

Turn it up to high for another hour.

Turn into a roasting dish.  Add fingerling potatoes, as many as you need for your table.  I figure two to three potatoes per person.  Do not peel.  Dave, Tamy and Martha are cheering now. 

In liquid from crock pot, place potatoes around roast. 

Place in oven at 350 degrees and cook fo 40 minutes.
