Italian Chuck Roast

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Cook: 8 hours


10 servings

Moist, flavorful and a cinch to throw together, this roast creates a rich, glossy gravy that tastes wonderful over noodles or potatoes. The beef is also delicious when it's shredded for sandwiches.—Jenny Bloomquist, Helena, Montana


  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (4 pounds)
  • 1 package Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 envelope au jus gravy mix
  • 1 envelope brown gravy mix
  • 1/2 cup water, divided


  1. Cut roast in half. Transfer to a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. Combine the salad dressing mix, au jus mix and gravy mix with 1/4 cup water; rub over roast. Pour remaining water around the roast.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is tender. Serve with gravy.
