This tender pot roast is delicious and easy to prepare with convenient envelopes of salad dressing and gravy mixes.


2 lbs Boneless beef chuck roasts; (up to 2 1/2 pounds)
1 envelope Ranch salad dressing mix
1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
1 envelope Brown gravy mix
1/2 cup Water

Original recipe makes 12



Place the chuck roasts 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 7-8 hours or until tender. If desired, thicken cooking juices for gravy.


Remove 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 juices, then add to saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, until the gravy is thickened.

This was the best slow cooker pot roast we made! Added carrots, onion, garlic, and a little red wine to the recipe, gave it great flavor & gravy! Thanks!

Wow, that was absolutely delish. And easy! I added 1/2 cup of red wine and I made it with a 10oz can of beef broth and a 10oz can of French onion soup (instead of water). I had 3 cups of liquid, which I heated with 1.5 tbsp of corn starch.

Omg! So good! Added carrots, pearl onions, and potatoes, used beef broth instead of water and added half a cup of white wine, will probably use red next time!
