What's For Dinner? Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

This recipe is easy enough for a weeknight, or it can be fancy enough to serve for company (I even fixed it for Easter dinner last year). Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Roast

1 (3 lb.) beef roast (or I sometimes use a pork roast)
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1 can jellied cranberry sauce
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all purpose flour

Put onion soup mix in the bottom of your slow cooker. Lay roast on top, and then top with cranberry sauce. Cover and cook eight hours on low.

Remove the roast/set aside. Whisk together butter and flour and add to juices remaining in slow cooker to create gravy.
