"Family favorite. My daughter first made this & we thought it too salty, too, so she recommended when I make it, add 1/2 packets of ranch & Italian dressing mix & use lower sodium gravy mix. I do & that helps lower sodium. Very easy, tasty."

"Did a 2 1/2 # pot roast with half the mixes and turned out perfect. Only there wasn’t much gravy and I added 2 c water and didn’t add beef bouillon to make up for it so it wasn’t as tasty as it could have been. I served the gravy over the roast and mashed potatoes. My husband is a chef and he said the roast was amazing and moist. I will make this from now on but will make sure to make the gravy to match."
