Mushroom Crock Pot Chuck Roast

I love a perfectly tender, saucy pot roast! It's one of my favorite things to "set and forget" on a work day. Walking in the door to the smell of dinner already prepared has to be a one of the best things for a working mama!

This recipe is superbly simple - a couple packets, some broth, some mushroom, an onion and you have a tasty and flavorful combination for a roast that goes really well with your favorite carb (rice, orzo, mashed potatoes, etc.) and a fresh veggie. I really liked this version! I thought about using a lipton onion soup mix, but skipped this time. If you want to plus-up the flavor profile give that a try and let me know what you think!
