Forget your usual pot roast recipe. This one has a killer creamy onion sauce

Print this recipe
Pot roast becomes unbelievably tender when you cook it in a slow cooker. Add a few creamy, flavorful ingredients, and the result is totally mouthwatering. This recipe uses an onion soup mix to make an irresistible gravy that cooks right along with the roast in the slow cooker.
Serve this creamy, oniony pot roast and sauce over mashed potatoes or noodles. Follow the instructions to sear the meat before putting it in the slow cooker for extra flavor. But if you are pressed for time, go ahead and skip that step. The finished dish will be delicious either way.
