Help! I need a quick, easy dinner! Crockpot recipe

Judging by my lack of posts this week, you may detect my busyness...that's why I love recipes like these when you are in a pinch.

I generally try to healthify my meals, meaning I try not to use prepared or processed ingredients, but sometimes I lack the time and energy yet still need to eat.  I was so thrilled to discover a crockpot recipe that takes 1 minute to start.

What You'll Need:

About a 2 lb chuck roast
can of cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup of water
packet of dry onion soup/dip
1 tbsp of minced garlic

Put can of soup, water, garlic and dry soup in the crockpot and mix.  Add the meat and turn to coat.  Set on low for 8 hours and enjoy!  Super easy and yummy!


  1. One trick I use is to pre cut veggies. When I buy carrots and celery at the store for cooking purposes I will slice then and keep it in the fridge ready to go when you need it to cook with. This will also work with onions, but you have to keep them in a little more airtight container.

  2. Great idea Glad! I like to do this with carrots, especially when they are super thirsty! I snip them, let them soak in water, then peel and wash. Then when we are ready to eat them, just rinse and enjoy!
