“A tender pot roast cooked in the crock pot along with potatoes, carrots and celery. This roast gets its zesty flavor from a mixture of garlic, basil, oregano, parsley and vinegar all stirred together in tomato soup. I got this recipe from the Campbell's Slow Cooker cookbook.”
12hrs 10mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season the roast with the black pepper.
  2. Put the potatoes, carrots, celery and tomato in a 3 1/2 quart crock pot. Top with the roast.
  3. Stir the soup, water, garlic, basil, oregano, parsley flakes and vinegar in a medium bowl. Pour the soup mixture over the roast and vegetables.
  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 10 to 12 hours or on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours or until the meat is fork-tender.
  5. Remove the roast from the crock pot to a cutting board and let it stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Thinly slice the roast and put on a serving platter. Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon and put on platter. Pour the juices from the crock pot into a gravy boat and serve with he roast and vegetables.
  6. Tip: For a thicker gravy, stir 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour in a small bowl. Remove roast and vegetables from crock pot and stir the flour mixture into the juice. Turn the heat to HIGH and cook for 10 minute or until the mixture boils and thickens.
