Time on High: 6 to 8 hours Time on Low: 8 to 10 hours This is an old Family favorite. It can be served for a family night comfort food meal or a 'guest are coming' dinner. The arrangement of the rice on the platter, the roast, sliced or shredded, in a pool made in the center of the rice with the sliced onion and garlic on top surrounded by the mushrooms and gravy make an awesome presentation that doesn't look anything like the typical Crock-Pot® meal.



1 to 2 Tablespoons olive oil or canola oil
1 Beef pot roast, 3 to 4 pounds (you want some visible fat)
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 Cup flour
1 Medium onion, thinly sliced
3 Large cloves garlic, sliced
1 to 2 Large jars of button mushrooms drained
2 Tablespoon butter
1 to 2 jars (12 ounces) of beef gravy

Box Rice

Note: You can use pork instead of beef
You can use couscous instead of rice


Heat oil in large skillet, medium to high. Salt and pepper well, Dredge in flour. Sear on all sides until browned. Put in Crock-Pot®.

Add butter, mushrooms, and onions to the skillet. Cook until mushrooms are slightly browned, and onions are translucent. Add to Crock-Pot®. Pour 1/2 of gravy & garlic over top of roast. Cover & cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours, or until very tender.

Prepare Rice per instructions on box. Put Rice on a deep platter and make a pool in the center for the roast. When roast is done, shred roast with fork while still in it's juices. With slotted spoon put roast in pool of rice, remove mushrooms, onions, and garlic surrounding roast like a nest over bed of rice. Cover with foil and keep warm. Pour drippings into a saucepan (get it all, this is what makes jarred gravy taste home made), add remaining gravy and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, or until desired thickness . Cover Roast and mushrooms with gravy & serve.

Spelling Oops!

Recipe should read "3 Large Cloves (of Garlic)". Not "Gloves". Haven't tried the recipe, but should taste much better with "sliced onions, garlic and mushrooms".

Good but don't use the powdered ones!

Didn't have the right gloves, I think, because mine were powdered. Unlike the other reviewer, I didn't find this to be chewy but my hubby sneezed over the white powder. Next time, I'll use the powder-free gloves. BTW, use any kind of meat or seasonings. Don't even need the crockpot. Just 3 LARGE gloves ... powder-free, just saying.

A little hard to chew

I think it was the gloves. It didn't say what kind so I used rubber. They were a little hard to digest and didn't add much flavor. Would probably be a decent recipe if you skipped the 3 Large Gloves.

Due to gradual and even heating of a slow cooker, recipes featured on this site can be cooked in a range of slow cooker sizes. Most recipes can be accommodated in a slow cooker that is either one quart smaller or one quart larger than specified. If using a smaller sized slow cooker, please use caution when preparing your meal to prevent over filling. For smaller sauces and dips that call for 3 quarts or less, it is not recommended to alter the unit size. Crock-Pot® is a registered trademark and should not be used generically when referring to a ‘slow cooker’ within the recipes.
