  • 3-4 pound chuck roast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 pound baby carrots
  • 1 large yellow onion cut into chunks
  • 1 8 oz package whole white mushrooms
  • 1 packet 1.4 oz French onion soup mix
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 package Idahoan Buttery Homestyle Mashed Potatoes cooked according to package directions


  • Add oil to a large skillet over med-high heat and brown all sides of your roast.
  • In your slow cooker add carrots, onion, mushrooms to the bottom of the crock. Place roast over the vegetables. Pour soup mix on top of your roast.
  • Pour beef broth on top.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. The roast and vegetables should be tender.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes!
  • Optional: You can create a cornstarch slurry by mixing 1 tablespoon corn starch with 1 tablespoon water and mixing it with the leftover juices to make a thicker gravy, but we like the juices as they are.
