To Die for Crock Pot Roast




Ingredients
A good cut of beef chuck for the roast itself;
this recipe calls for about 2 2.5-pound chucks,
but I usually just make one 2-3 pound piece.
Make sure that it is marbled and has lots of fat.
The better the cut, the more delicious the roast.
1 packet dry salad dressing – Italian
1 packet dry salad dressing – Ranch
1 packet dry Brown Gravy
½ cup of water


Instructions
Mix the salad and gravy packets with water,
pour over the roast and set in the slow cooker for 8 hours on low.
If you want to thicken the gravy after the roast
is cooked, add some flour in a skillet with the au jus.

  1. It doesn't mention adding vegetables to the crock pot at anytime. Is it possible you have made it with these additions so that we would know when to add them?

  6. Before making a roast I have always browned it on both sides in a skillet before putting it in the crockpot, do you suggest this?

    1. Yes, the juices from the roast make up the rest of the liquid.

  12. I made a similar recipe but it called for Ajus instead of Brown Gravy and it also had pepperoncini's added along with some Butter and I cooked mine in the Pressure Pro (An infomercial purchase) & I 99'd it Meaning 99 minutes) and it was to die for.

  16. I always make this: Potatoes, Carrots, Onions on the bottom, roast on top. 1 can golden mushroom soup - spread over roast. Salt & pepper. 1 can water poured around the edges so it falls thru to the bottom but doesn't wash all the soup away from the roast. Cook on low 8-10 hrs. My family LOVES it!

  21. Crock Pot Mississippi Pot Roast. Ingredients
    1 3 lb chuck roast
    2 tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
    salt & pepper to taste
    1 packet ranch dressing mix

    1 packet dry onion soup mix
    1/2 cup salted butter 1 stick
    8 peperoncini peppers
    Instructions
    Heat up a large skillet on high.
    Add oil to hot skillet.
    You want it really hot here to brown or "sear" the beef quickly.
    Take a paper towel and make sure you dry both sides of the pot roast.
    Season with a little bit of salt and pepper.
    Once the skillet is nice and hot, add the roast.
    Allow the roast to cook for about 2-3 minutes until it is golden brown.
    Using tongs, flip the meat over and sear the other side of the roast for another 2-3 minutes.
    Transfer meat to slow cooker.
    Sprinkle packets of dry ranch dressing and onion soup mixes over pot roast.
    Top with a stick of butter then place peppers on and around roast.
    Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
    Take two forks and start shredding the meat.

  22. For those asking about when to add vegetables, I always put carrots and potatoes in right with the meat. The person saying to put potatoes an hour before it is done must have a much more powerful crockpot than I do. Or cuts the potatoes in a dice, because potatoes and carrots take much longer to finish than an hour in a crockpot.
