Wonderful Wednesday Wrecipes

OK- pull up your aprons, girls, today's recipe is a tough one- it ranks right up behind marshmallow treats and in front of peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. Don't be fooled by the extensive list of ingredients.

Slow-Cooker Pot Roast

potroast1

  • 2-1/2 to 3 lb chuck pot roast
  • 1 packet of beef gravy mix
  • 1 packet of italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 packet of ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1 cup water

Line your crockpot with one of those awesome Reynolds slow cooker plastic liner bags- you'll thank me the rest of your life.

(NEVER, EVER get "round"- ALWAYS GET "CHUCK"!!!)

Plop (technical culinary term) your beef in lined pot.

In a smallish bowl, mix the dry packet ingredients together,

then sprinkle on top of roast, but not so much around it.

Pour the 1 cup of water around the roast.potroast9

Put slow cooker lid on,

and turn that baby to low.

(I store my pot in the basement, hence some rust)

Cook on low for at least 8 hours; I've cooked my 3-lb roasts as long as 11 hours.

I LOVE this recipe and cook it a lot in the winter. So quick and easy to make.

I do mine a bit different and mix the dry and water before adding it to the meat. Im sure either works fine.
