Recipe: Crock Pot Pot Roast

I have had a couple requests for my Pot Roast recipe lately, so I thought I would share. This recipe will be THE best pot roast you have EVER had. You might be skeptical at first, but PLEASE trust me.

To Die for Pot Roast
2-3 lb Chuck Roast (sometimes I use an English Roast)
1 can of Beef Broth (or bullion cube with water)
1 package of DRY ranch dressing by Hidden Valley
1 package of DRY italian dressing by Good Seasons
1 package of DRY lipton onion soup

Place roast in the bottom of crock pot.
In a separate bowl mix together all the dry ingredients and pour onto the roast.
Pour in the beef broth or equivalent. Make sure the liquid doesn’t cover the roast, but you don’t want it drying out either.
Quarter an onion or two and put it down along the sides of the roast.
Peel and halve a few potatoes and throw them on top of the roast.
Peel some carrots and halve them, put them in next.
On top I put in a 16 oz package of pre-sliced mushrooms.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, depending on the size of your roast.

When I first made this I figured it would be too salty, or too seasoned or something, but it wasn’t. It was absolutely perfect and I make this at least twice a month now. If I could market this to everyone I knew, I definitely would, it’s THAT good.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about doing your pot roast in the crock pot. Pot roast is such a “homey,” wonderful meal, and this would make it even more convenient plus wouldn’t heat up your house like the oven.

    This sounds like a very flavorful and moist way to cook a roast. The few times I’ve cooked a roast in the oven, it has turned out very dry. I’ll bet the vegetables take on a lot of flavor cooking this way, too.

  3. Sherry Compton says:

    Love how easy this is. Crock pots give you such convenience and don’t heat up the house. This recipe sounds very flavorful, and I think the meat would be juicy and tender, too.

    Always wanted to make a pot roast. this looks easy in the crockpot.

  5. Erin Knack says:

    Nothing is better than leaving for the day and coming back to a fully cooked meal in a crock pot. This looks delicious and very easy. Thanks!

  6. My husband would love this, thank you very much for sharing.

  7. This sounds delicious, perfect for a family dinner. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  8. I cook mine very similar but have never added in the dry Lipton Onion Soup or mushrooms. It sounds very good. I am going to add this to my meal list next week.
