This is a dinner that was so easy and so delicious. I did not come up with this recipe but I have made it a few times and its in our rotation. I love to cook with the slow cooker any chance I can get.
You will need 1 envelop of dry onion soup mix and a can of jellied cranberry sauce
You will also need a beef chuck roast between 3-4 lbs
Empty out your can of cranberry sauce on top of your roast
Sprinkle the top with your onion soup mix. Close the lid and allow it to cook for 8 hours till done. (On low)
Once your roast is cooked remove the roast from the pan.
All the drippings from the roast I put into a sauce pan and bring to a low boil. I then add in 2 tablespoons of melted butter and 2 tablespoons of flour (that I whisked together first) Then added into the roast liquid to thicken it up into a gravy.
Make your favorite family sides and serve the gravy over your roast. YUM!!!
So very very easy and yummy. Perfect for a Sunday dinner!!
