Flavorful Pot Roast

Submitted by:
This tender pot roast is seasoned with convenient envelopes of salad dressing and gravy mixes. It's very easy to make. If you put it in the crockpot before you leave in the morning, it's done when you come home!

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 7 hours

Serves: 4


1 ( 2 1/2 pound) boneless beef chuck roast
1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix
1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1/2 cup water


Place the roast in a 5-qt. slow cooker.

In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing and gravy mixes; stir in water. Pour over meat.

Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until tender. If desired, thicken juices for gravy.

For gravy:
Remove the meat to a warm platter, then strain and skim the fat from the cooking juices. Measure the juices and place in a saucepan.

Combine 3 tablespoons flour and 1/3 cup cold water for each cup of juices, then add to the saucepan.

Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, until the gravy is thickened.
