A flavorful slow cooker pot roast that just takes 3 envelopes to make!
I finally got around to getting a new picture and it was about time. I have made this pot roast too many times to count and it was the first successful pot roast I had ever made, so it was a big deal back in the day. When I was first married (back in 2006) and attempted my first pot roast, I ended up with a dry, overcooked roast on the outside and a completely raw roast on the inside. How I did this...I'm still not sure. My grandparents gifted me a crockpot for my birthday and I braved trying to make a pot roast once again. This recipe seemed simple enough and I knew it was going to be okay. You take three envelopes of seasoning mixes. I always vary whether I use onion soup mix and Italian dressing mix, but it always turns out so well. I don't always put vegetables in the slow cooker with the roast but you absolutely can, if you want to.
What you need:
- 1 packet brown gravy mix
- 1 packet onion soup mix/Italian dressing mix
- 1 packet ranch dressing mix
- 1 cup water
- Vegetables (potatoes, onions and carrots), if desired
- Beef roast
- Place roast in slow cooker.
- Pour the 3 packets in and pour water over top.
- Arrange vegetables around the roast, if desired.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
