Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Pot Roast


Thank goodness for family and slow cookers. School started back up on January 2nd, and I am already exhausted! Fixing dinner is the last thing I want to do when I get home after dark. A few weeks ago, my sweet mother-in-law took advantage of a huge grocery store sale and pretty much stocked my refrigerator and freezer with meats and other goodies. Therefore, in the middle of the week, I chose a nice three pound chuck roast, threw it in the crock pot, covered it with a nice mixture of flavorful dressings.  I’m telling you:  it doesn’t get any easier than this.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3-4 lb chuck, rump, or shoulder roast
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pkg Italian dressing mix
  • 1 pkg Ranch dressing mix
  • 1 pkg brown gravy mix


Recipe Instructions

Pour water into slow cooker then place roast inside.  Mix together dressings and gravy and sprinkle liberally on top of roast.

I set mine for 8:30, and when I got home, not only did a wonderfully delicious aroma greet me, but I had a nice brown roast ready to eat:

I’ve never used a gravy mix on a roast before, so instead of having the roast sit in watery liquid, instead it was in a nice, thick, gravy.  It was tender and tasty.

I served it with some fresh green beans, Texas Toast, and red potatoes.

Mister Spice and I give this 4/5 herbs!  I prefer my regular Pot Roast, but the ease of this one, combined with the nice gravy, made it worth fixing.
