Pot Roast Time

We love us some pot roast!  And with this simple recipe, you can enjoy it any time!  Joy found this recipe years ago on the world wide web and it has been our go-to pot roast since.  In the immortal words of Ron Popeil, "set it and forget it"!


2lb Roast
1 Italian Dressing Packet
1 Ranch Dressing Packet
1 Brown Gravy Packet
1 cup Water

Place the roast in the Crock-Pot.  I start mine the night before.  Stir together the water and all three packets.  Pour the mixture over the roast.  Turn the roast and make sure it is coated.  Turn the Crock-Pot to low and let it go.  If you start the night before, check it first thing in the morning (you may need to turn the roast).  Plus, I sometimes add baby carrots and potatoes the next morning.  Let it cook the rest of the day, and when you are ready to eat, remove the roast, carrots and potatoes. Spoon the juice from the Crock-Pot over the roast, carrots and potatoes when serving.  

Feel free to thicken the juice in a sauce pan before serving.  

If you do not add potatoes to the roast, this roast is excellent served on whipped garlic potatoes.  

So go ahead, get your pot roast on.  You will not be disappointed!

**The Crock-Pot pictured above is the same model that we use at home.  It was given to us by my grandmother.  It is older than me and still going strong.
