Going for round #2 with this recipe today. Forgot to get mushrooms and using the pepperoncinis (which I left out last time). I'm gonna roast some potatoes and carrots to go with it. I'm thinking big bowl, roasted veggies on the bottom, meat and gravy on top. I'm kind of excited right now!!!!! Will report back after food coma subsides.

I found that making mash taters instead of potatoes in the pot roast turned out much better. It was best pot roast dinner ever.

This. I like carrots, potatoes, etc., but cooking them with the meat takes away from the meat. Cook then on the side and use some of the gravy on top of them.

Hadn’t thought about a roux. Any excuse for gravy is a good one.

Yes, the presto version on the slow cooker setting. Was ok, but not great. Didn’t give it time to break down and render the connective tissue. May be better with some added moisture, but I think it may kill the magic of the recipe.

On second thought. Swap the onion soup mix, for canned onion soup. Enough to cover the meat, probably 2 cans.. Should give the moisture the head start it needs. Not 100% positive that will fix it, but flavor profile should be on point, without making it watery. This should speed up breaking down everything.

Slight modification for you instapot/electric pressure cooker users, based on the above post, and verified by my brother.

Use a 2.5 - 3lb roast. Leave out the Lipton onion soup mix, and replace with 1 15oz can of Campbell’s French onion soup. Also leave out the better than billion, and replace with 1 can beef consume. Drop butter to 1/3 - 1/2 stick. Cook for 1 hour 15 min - 1.5 hours. Not quite as good as the crock pot version, but not far off either.

Done some more playing around with this recipe. Carrots are fine. Potatoes kill it.

Figured I would bring this one back up. Been playing around with sous vide cooking a lot lately. 2-3 weeks ago, I put a frozen chuck roast, along with frozen onions, mushrooms, and carrots, and the appropriate butter/oil/seasoning in a vac seal bag. Going in the sous vide tomorrow AM, and going to hang out all day, to see how it works. Goal being to be able to buy meat on sale, pack it up in vac bags, freeze, and then just stick it in the water bath on the way out the door for work. Not really any different than crock pot cooking, other than not having to do prep the night before.

I can't wait for camping season. Bought a large fire ring/pit with a cooking grate attached. I'm going to get a dutch oven and try this. Can't wait!

Morning update. Sous vide was an abysmal failure. Way too much air to keep it submerged. Despite being well vacuumed, just no way to rid the air space between he vegetables. Now hanging out in the crock pot.

Could you have clipped a corner and close pinned it to the side of the pot? I think the water would force the air out leaving it sealed.

It's worth a shot. I do it that way with steaks all the time....i never seal the steaks when I put them in a bag to sous vide.

It was vacuum sealed. The airspace between vegetables was the issue. Just no way to vacuum it out.

I use the original Everglades seasoning with a pretty standard crock pot load and I think it tastes good . I don't add any water just dump in a half bag of frozen corn first .

Got one in crockpot as we speak, put it on about 6am before I left for work .

Chuck roast
lot of carrots (we use more carrots and leave out potatoes most times)
whole mushrooms
sweet onion
1 pack of Lipton beefy onion soup mix
Monterey seasoning (wife I really like this stuff, she even puts it on veggies when I grill them )
box of beef broth

Turn on low and will be done when we get ready to eat tonight, best thing is I will have left overs for lunch next couple days
