Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) cream of mushroom soup (see NOTES)
  • 3 tbs au jus gravy mix
  • 3 lb chuck roast
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 16 oz whole green beans (frozen or fresh)
  • 6 medium potatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced in half.
Instructions
  1. Mix mushroom soup and au jus gravy mix in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet and brown meat on both sides. Deglaze the pan with the ¼ cup water.
  3. Place browned meat in the middle of a 5-7 quart slow cooker.
  4. Put the green beans on one side of the meat. Place the potatoes on the other end of the meat.
  5. Spread soup mixture on top of meat. Pour the deglazing liquid on top of the soup mixture.
  6. Top with mushrooms.
  7. Cover and cook on low 6-10 hours, high 4-8 hours.
  8. Always check for doneness at the minimum time. Cook time ranges are approximate as all cookers cook differently and meat can vary in thickness.
Notes
When using a canned cream soup with any commercial seasoning mix or gravy, I ALWAYS use low-sodium soup.
