  • 10.75 oz can cream of mushroom soup (see NOTES)
  • 3 tbs au jus gravy mix
  • 3 lb chuck roast
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 16 oz whole green beans frozen or fresh
  • 6 medium potatoes quartered
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms sliced in half.


  • Mix mushroom soup and au jus gravy mix in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet and brown meat on both sides. Deglaze the pan with the 1/4 cup water.
  • Place browned meat in the middle of a 5-7 quart slow cooker.
  • Put the green beans on one side of the meat. Place the potatoes on the other end of the meat.
  • Spread soup mixture on top of meat. Pour the deglazing liquid on top of the soup mixture.
  • Top with mushrooms.
  • Cover and cook on low 6-10 hours, high 4-8 hours.
  • Always check for doneness at the minimum time. Cook time ranges are approximate as all cookers cook differently and meat can vary in thickness.


When using a canned cream soup with any commercial seasoning mix or gravy, I ALWAYS use low-sodium soup.
