Tasty & Easy Recipe for the Busy Parent

Pot Roast

Pot Roast

I was never much of a cook until I had a child and she began eating “table food”. Since this milestone, I have managed to cook dinner every night of the work week. Quite the feat for me, especially considering I work and had never cooked a dish more complicated than perogies prior to having a child. Since time these days is sparse and extremely valuable, I’ve had to find ways to create easy but healthy dinners (which I thought I’d share with you!).

I always make extra for lunch the next day which has also helped us to save money during these tough times.


Tasty & Easy: Slow Cooker Pot Roast

– 2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
– 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix **
– 1 1/4 cups water
– 5 1/2 pounds pot roast

**If you do not have a package of dry onion soup mix, you can make your own! mix 4 tsp Instant beef bouillon granules, 8 tsp Dried minced onion (or you can use chopped onion), 1 tsp Onion powder

1. In a bowl, mix cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and water. Place pot roast in slow cooker and coat with soup mixture.
2. Cook on High setting for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low setting for 8 to 9 hours.

  1. hi i noticed this recipe (and your others) and they have really caught my attention! Do you have a lot of good recipes that are healthy? If you do, you should enter them into this cooking contest that’s coming to Cleveland on September 25-26th..it’s the Aetna Healthy Food Fight. You can go to healthyfoodfight.com for more details, but the deadline for Cleveland is September 8th. Oh, and throughout the contest, celebrity cooks will be judging (Bobby Flay, Sunny Anderson, Sara Moulton, or Cat Cora). Good luck if you decide to enter and if not, please post more recipes! 🙂
