Souper Easy Crock Pot Roast and Gravy

This year we have church from 1:00pm - 4:00pm. It really feels late when we get home from church, especially on fast Sundays (when we abstain from eating or drinking until dinnertime). So almost every Sunday I am making slow cooker meals, so that when we get home dinner is ready. Yay. I made this super easy crock pot roast recently because I just didn't feel like chopping up a lot of veggies and this recipe also makes it's own gravy, another time saver. It's probably going to be my go-to roast recipe this year. I served it with slow-cooker mashed potatoes, recipe coming later this week, the gravy made from the juices and soups in the recipe, and steamed, buttered peas. It was a great, easy, comfort food meal.

Souper Easy Crock Pot Roast and Gravy

3-4 lb pot roast
Montreal steak seasoning
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can golden mushroom soup
1 cup water
1 packet dry onion soup mix

Spray the inside of your crock pot with non-stick spray. Season both sides of pot roast with Montreal steak seasoning. Place pot roast in crock pot. In a bowl combine soups, water, and onion soup mix. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

When you are ready to serve remove roast and pull apart into big serving size chunks. Cover with foil to keep hot. Strain juices from crock pot into a pot and skim off some of the fat (or you can use a gravy fat separator), and bring to a boil. Serve this gravy over the roast and potatoes.
