"Super easy to make and great taste. I did add some vegetables to mine and they came out very salty. I guess that's why this recipe does not call for any vegetables. The meat was perfect (not too salty)."

"I have never been much on beef roast, I just didn't like the taste of it. The only use I had for a beef roast was to cook and shred it to make vegetable soup. I have to admit the combination of the dressings just didn't sound like they went with roast, but after reading all the reviews I wanted to try it. Boy am I glad I did!!!!!!!!!!! I was still skeptical even as I mixed the packets together to pour over the meat. But one taste put all skepticism to rest. I made gravy from the juices and it was delicious. I've even thought of other ways I can use this combination of seasonings for other beef dishes. Thanks so much for sharing."

Posted by: Cubbybear Replies: 15 Posted on: 1/13/2003 11:52:02 AM

1 beef roast, large enough to fit in your crockpot
1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
1 pkg. brown gravy mix
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
end for more gravy

"Made this tonight for a date.... with some adjustments. I used either top round or bottom round roasts (not sure which.... my butcher cut it for me. I added six chopped smallish red potatoes, 4 carrots cut into 1/2 inch pieces, a sliced stalk of celery and a few Tbsp. Minced garlic and a sliced onion. I added 1/2 cup red cooking wine as well. 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."
