This super tender pot roast gets its special flavor from zippy Catalina dressing. Made in a slow cooker, it takes the edge off a busy day. —Paula Beach, Milton, New York


  • 3 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1-1/3 cups thinly sliced fresh carrots
  • 2/3 cup sliced onion
  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup Catalina salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or beef broth
