What's Cooking? Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

This amazing Cranberry Roast is one of my personal favorite Sunday meals. SO SUPER EASY (but don't tell anyone)! Huge *bonus* it makes a great gravy, right in the crock pot. Even bigger *bonus* sharing a yummy meal with good friends! Thanks guys!

Today at the Peterson's:

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast - recipe follows
Mashed Potatoes (my husbands specialty, he makes a mean mashed potato)
Bacon Asparagus
Candied Carrots

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast:

1 (1 oz) envelope dry onion soup mix
1 (3 lb) beef chuck roast
1 (16 oz) can jellied cranberry sauce

2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons flour


Place dry onion soup mix in the bottom of a slow cooker. Salt and pepper both sides of your roast and place roast in the slow cooker, and top with the cranberry sauce. Place lid on crock pot and cook 8 hours on low.

Watch your roast at about hour 7, mine seem to be perfect about hour 7.

That's right don't add any liquid! That's it turn it on and walk away from the slow cooker!

Remove roast and set aside. Set slow cooker to High. Whisk together butter and flour, and slowly mix into the liquid remaining in the slow cooker to create a thick gravy. Serve with roast.

Happy Baking!
