This was really good and easy.
"I'm not a huge fan of roast. It seems the meat just never has any flavor, despite having seasoned it. But my dad bought us this 7 pound roast and I needed a recipe to cook it up, and I found this one. I cut the roast in half so as to adhere to the recipe, but also so it would fit in my crock pot. I seasoned the meat with pepper, garlic and onion and browned in oil with garlic. The end result was really good. Still not a fan of such a bland meat, but the gravy it made was spectacular! I could have eaten it by itself."- mtdewaddict82
Top-ranked recipe named "3 Envelope Roast"
(Please note in a SLOW COOKER you CAN cut in half the dry ingredients if you find it overpowering.)
In the pressure cooker use the whole envelopes. I prefer the whole envelopes in either method of cooking.
Put the water in a measuring cup that is larger then the amount of water you are using. Now add and mix all three envelopes of dry salad dressings to the water. Mix until blended completely.
Brown the roast (if desired) I love mine browned in the CE 8 qt PC)
Add the meat to your cooker
Pour the water, salad dressing mixture over the roast
Now cook as usual. In the CE Pressure Cooker, I cooked it for 70 minutes and used quick release method can and probably should use natural but I am always in a hurry when making this as it smells so good! In the slow cooker cook it on high for about 4 hours on low about 8 hours.
You can use the liquid for gravy or broth!
This roast was great! My family loved it and it pulled apart with a fork.
cjvigg 1 month agoAlways delicious, every time. I add carrots, celery, and potatoes and cook this on LOW for 8 hours in the crockpot. Amazing. I've also added mushrooms and peppers during the last hour of cooking. Simply delicious!!

pfedorchak 2 months agoThis seemed like it would have way too many unhealthy ingredients so I only used half of each of the powdery things and it still tasted great!

chadbro828 6 months ago**Special consideration! This recipe is decent. However, most ranch mixes contain (a ton of) MSG. Which I didn't realize until we were all quite miserable (thank you gas pills!). So you may want to halve the amount or find another seasoning to use..
Stewdebaker 6 months agoI really don't understand why this got so many fives. As my son said, 'This isn't bad, but it isn't good.' The entire family agreed with him. It was, however, simple to make.
