Slow-Cooked Beef ‘n’ Veggies

My husband and I came up with this soothing slow-cooker recipe. It's simple and filling, with lots of flavor.—LaDonna Reed, Ponca City, Oklahoma

    I ended up adding a packet of beef stew dry seasoning. The Italian dressing made it a little too wangy for me. If you're the type of person that pours Italian dressing on your steaks then this is the recipe for you.

    I used fat free Italian Dressing instead of the regular, and since my roast had a little fat on it, it didn't taste like a no fat recipe. It was still very moist and had depth to the flavor. Next time I will either boost my slow cooker up to high or cook for longer because although my meat was cooked after 8 hrs on low, my carrots were still too crisp and we like lthem soft with a pot roast.
