Mix together packets of dressing and gravy, then coat roast on all sides. Place in crock pot, and add 1/2 to 3/4 cup water. I will also usually add some fresh minced garlic cloves (3 or so) and one small onion that I've chopped up at this time. Turn crock pot to low temperature. About four hours later, I add potatoes and carrots. I'll also eyeball the roast at this time, and will sometimes add another packet of onion gravy or au jus gravy and another 1/2 cup of water. Let roast and vegetables cook another 3 1/2 to 4 hours, until potatoes are tender and roast is 150-160 degrees. Remove vegetables and roast from crock pot, pour juice in crock pot into sauce pan. I make a thickening agent of cornstarch and water to add to the juice. Bring to a boil until it thickens, stirring constantly.

lnhayes19This pot roast is delicious!! My husband loved it. Definitely a great recipe. Can be followed step by step & come out perfect . In my opinion only thing that would've made it better was some type of spice. But no complaining. Excellent taste!!2y ago
katetwillsFlavor was great but even with following all suggestions in the recipe mine was very dry.3y ago
lolagrassFinally, a pot roast that tasted like a pot roast, not beef stew! If you like a flavorful, tender perfect pot roast try this recipe ! I made changes to cook time because I had a larger roast and I was too impatient and I wanted a faster cook time. Also, I did add shallots and fresh garlic. I let it cook much longer and for my impatient self I would rec to start on high, then add veggies another 3/4 cup of water with brown gravy package and keep it on high. Cook until roastmeat is shred tender. Au jus, brown gravy, regular italian dressing and hidden valley ranch dressing packets all used as well as chopped shallots and 2 minced garlic cloves.3y ago
