I usually uuse a 4 pound roast so I just do two of Ranch, 2 of brown gravy, and 1 of italian dressing in a cup of water. When i thinken the juices for gravy I just add some corn starch or flour to some cold waterbefore I mixit in to the juices to avoid lumps. The best part is it is so easy yet tastes so good."

1 pkg. Italian dressing mix
1/2 C. warm water

Place roast in crockpot. Mix all three envelopes and
sprinkle on top of roast. Pour water in the bottom of the
crockpot. Cover and cook on low 6 to 7 hours.

Note: Can use half of seasoning packages without
jeopardizing the taste. Also you can add more water at

I also thickened it with a slurry of flour and water. It turned out delicious. The only thing I would do differently is leave out the onion. For some reason, I am not too pleased with the taste of onions in all the slow cooker recipes I have tried. This is delicious though. I sliced up one of the roasts and have it keeping warm in the gravy, and the other I set aside in my fridge."

"So I lost the packet of ranch I bought the other day; thus, I used the italian, onion soup packet, ranch in a bottle, and gravy packet. I threw half a bag of baby carrots on top, and 2 hrs later some quartered red potatoes. It was AMAZING!!! Thought I was crazy mixing ranch and italian on pot roast but don't be fooled. COMES OUT PERFECT!!!"

"This is one of my favorite things to cook for my family. It's a hit every time, and smells awesome while slowly cooking in the crockpot all day! I also place onions, potatoes, and carrots in with the roast. Serve with the gravy and some fresh bread, and it's an excellent meal!"

"This is outrageously good and easy. You really should try this, as all I have shared it with wind up making it more than once. Not only is the roast very flavorful it makes very good gravy as well. A WINNER!"

"I found this recipe to be VERY salty, with the flavor of the marinade overpowering the meat. I think I'll keep looking... -LCofNC"
