To Die For Pot Roast
We just had a Sunday Supper kind of dinner on a busy week night and I couldn't have put less effort into it if I tried. It literally took about 5 minutes to throw this together and that included taking pictures so that I could share this To Die For Pot Roast with you!
You will need:
4 -5 lb beef roast, any kind
1 package brown gravy mix, dry
1 package ranch dressing mix, dry
1 package Italian dressing mix,dry
Place roast in crock pot, mix dry ingredients in a small bowl and sprinkle over top. Pour 1/2 cup water around roast. Cover and cook on Low for 7-9 hours.
2-4 hours before you are ready to eat cut up an onion, 5-6 carrots and 4-5 potatoes.
Compare your roast to mine...if you think it looks as good or even better...it's time for some veggie action.
Not sure that it is completely necessary but I took a spoon and bathed my veggies in gravy a bit before replacing the lid. If not necessary - it certainly made them look more appetizing for this picture.
Or if you don't like pot roast...let your family enjoy it. I am not a big fan. I did eat a bit of everything but I have never been a big fan. As a kid I would pick out the veggies and eat them with crackers. But when I told Hubby my crock pot plan to make sure that we stayed out of the drive thru - He was quick to request this meal. Every Single person in my family had seconds...except me.
I hope they really enjoyed it since I won't be making it again for at least a year.
