Flavorful Pot Roast
On hectic days, this is so quick and easy to prep! Convenient packages of dressing and gravy combine to create a sauce worthy of a fall-apart roast. For a filling meal-in-one, serve with mashed potatoes and ladle the juices over top. —Arlene Butler, Ogden, Utah
- 2 boneless beef chuck roasts (2-1/2 pounds each)

Mar 21, 2020Absolutely delicious and so very easy to make. The only change I made was to use two small arm roasts that I had on hand rather than chuck roast. The gravy was delicious. I will definitely be making this my go-to pot roast recipe from now on!
Mar 12, 2020So easy and the best tasting ever! Whole family loves this one.
Mar 12, 2020This is a super recipe. Since it's just the two of us I used just one roast. I also omitted the ranch dressing mix because we despise the flavor.
Nov 14, 2019Delicious recipe, very easy to prepare. I used 3 cups of water rather than me 1/2 cup in the recipe. It was not salty. Good night
Sep 24, 2019This is the first recipe review I have ever given, and this recipe deserves all the accolades it can possibly get! I am not even a big meat eater, but I have made this pot roast TWICE in the past month. I hate salty food, and I didn't find this this salty at all. I only made one roast, and slid a few chopped up potatoes, carrots, onions, and garlic cloves under it (to make it all fit in my 4 quart crockpot). I also added 1/4 cup of water to the recipe (because I love the gravy)! My family likes the beef (which totally falls apart) and potatoes, while I favor the gravy and carrots. We all enjoy it over rice pilaf. It smells SO good while its simmering merrily in the crockpot ~ Try it tonight!
Aug 5, 2019I didn't change a thing. My family loved it. Very flavorful and fall apart tender.
Jul 20, 2019Made this. Delicious. Was way to salty. Next time, I will use just one of the package. Need to cut down on the salty taste.
Jun 30, 2019I've been making this recipe for twenty years. I only use one boneless chuck roast and put potatoes and carrot chunks under it and cook at 325 in the oven in my covered Dutch oven for about two and a half hours. I also use a bit more water to make sure I have enough of the gravy
Jun 30, 2019This has become a favorite! I like to put fresh mushrooms and/or green beans under the roast and wow! This recipe also works beautifully with pork butt!
Jun 4, 2019One of my favorite recipes. But I also add a stick of butter! Superb!!!!!!
