Slow Cooker Roast Beef and Gravy

I love my slow cooker. The set it and forget it mentality really works for me!

This roast is amazing, it has so much flavour and it makes its own gravy!
How can you go wrong?

What you need,

1 envelope of Onion Soup Mix
2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
1¼ cups Water
1 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 4-5lb. roast beef
Salt and Pepper

In a large skillet heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat.
Pat the roast beef dry with paper towel and season well with salt and pepper.
Brown the roast on all sides in the hot pan; it will take 3-4 minutes per side to get a good brown crust on it.

Transfer the meat to your slow cooker.

Whisk together the onion soup mix, mushroom soup, water, pepper, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce.
Pour over the roast and roll it around to coat it well.

Cook on low in your slow cooker for 7-8 hours.

This beef was so moist and juicy. The gravy is to die for! Serve with some smashed potatoes and a side of crispy veggies and you have yourself a wonderfully delicious classic dinner.
