This is a slow cooker recipe I found on FC and have made it several times, each time with raving reviews. The gravy from this is awesome. A definite keeper! You can use any kind of roast you like, chuck, round, etc.
To Die For Pot Roast
any 3-4 pound beef roast
1 can of beef gravy
I package of dry italian dressing
1 package dry ranch dressing
3/4 cup water
1 large onion, sliced
Line bottom of slow cooker with sliced onions. Place roast on top of bed of onions.
In a bowl, mix together dry mixes and the water, use a whisk to blend. Add gravy and mix. Pour entire mixture over roast and cook on low 8-10 hours.
To make gravy, remove 1.5 cups of the liquid from the slow cooker when roast is done and put into a small saucepan. Place 2 teaspoons of cornstarch into a small bowl. Add 1/4 cup of the reserved liquid from the saucepan and mix with cornstarch until smooth. Add this mixture back into the remaining juice in the saucepan and cook over low heat until thickened.
Serve with boiled potatoes, gravy and crusty bread.
