I made a roast yesterday. I was very nervous about it because I usually dry the heck out of a roast, but it came out falling apart & super moist. It was incredible.
CROCK POT 4-PACKET ROAST
1 packet brown gravy mix
1 packet Italian dressing mix
1 packet Ranch dressing mix
1 packet Onion Soup mix
1 cup water
3 lb. Chuck Roast
(Or whatever meat you want. I don't know a Chuck Roast from a T-Bone. I just got what I could afford.)
Mix the packets of dry mixes with the water in your Crock Pot (I used Alice - my 6-1/2 quart). Throw in meat and splash it around. Cook on Low for 6-8 hours. Mine was done at 6-1/2.
It's that simple and it's wonderful!!!
Some people put potatoes and vegetables in with the meat. Except for onions & mushrooms (if I have them), I don't. I think they're nasty like that.
Some people insist you have to cover everything completely with liquid. I'm making a roast, not boiled beef. Seriously, you don't have to. It's awesome as is.
Some people also use the sauce as a gravy. Mine's usually too fatty to do that. I suppose if you had a lot of patience you could refrigerate the sauce, scrape off the fat, and use the remaining juice for something. That's like work. No thanks.
