To Die for Crock pot roast

Here is one of my all time favorites. I got it off of recipezaar. I make this to accompany other meats for the holidays and everyone asks for the recipe.

1 beef roast, any kind

1 (1 1/4 ounce) package brown gravy mix, dry

1 (1 1/4 ounce) package dried Italian salad dressing mix

1 (1 1/4 ounce) package ranch dressing mix, dry
1/2 cup water

1Place beef roast in crock pot.
2Mix the dried mixes together in a bowl and sprinkle over the roast.
3Pour the water around the roast.
4Cook on low for 7-9 hours.

This was soooo good, I don’t like roast but loved this! Thank you for the receipe!!

Here is another Pot Roast (Beef) recipe that our family loves if anyone is interested.




1 Beef Chuck or Blade Roast, about 3-4 pounds
2 to 3 Vidalia Onions, quartered or smaller
2 tablespoons salad oil
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon of thyme
3 teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce
Pepper to taste
Salt to taste or approximately 1 teaspoon
1 can of beef broth or consommé soup, with one
can of water
1 Package of Lipton Onion Soup mix with water
per directions for soup
1 package of baby carrots or 8 carrots, pared & cutup
Several Potatoes (about 8 depending on size)
peeled & cut up into 1 inch or larger chunks
(You can substitute 2-3 cans of Veg-All Large Country
Style Vegetables in place of the Potatoes & Carrots above)
3 tablespoons of flour


In hot oil and butter brown roast until browned on all sides. Lightly spray the cook well and rack with spray cooking oil. Place the roast on a rack, in a 6 quart slow cooker or crock pot. Add Beef broth or consommé soup, water, garlic, thyme, pepper,and salt. Cook on 350 degrees until hot, approximately 15-20 minutes. Reduce heat to 200-250 degrees, and cook for 2 to 3 hours or until tender. The last hour or so add the vegetables. Remove the meat and vegetables and set aside. Add three tablespoons of flour and thicken. I like to cut the roast into slices or shred, and add back to the liquid along with the cooked vegetables.
