Crockpot 'To Die For' Roast

A friend of mine gave me this recipe years ago and it has always been a favorite for everyone.

This is probably one of the easiest recipes I have made that turns out so amazing.

The roast has a delicious flavor and is extremely tender, while the juices simply make it!

If you want, add some potatoes and carrots to the crockpot and you have a complete meal, or whip up some mashed potatoes for a hearty meal. 
This is definitely comfort food.

All you need is:
3 pound chuck roast
1 packet of dry Italian seasoning
1 packet of dry Ranch dressing
1 packet of brown gravy
1 cup of beef broth
1/2 cup of water

WARNING: Raw meat ahead!!

The simple ingredients

Place the roast in the crockpot. I always use beef bouillon and a cup of water, but however you do it, place the liquid in a pot on the stove with the water.  Open all of the dry ingredients and mix together with the liquid.  Stir until combined, but there will still be chunks of dry that are hard to dissolve.  Pour over the roast, cook for about 10 hours on low, and viola, you have a delicious roast!  Add potatoes and carrots at this time also, if you wish.

There you have the roast that is to die for.
It's so nice to have a meal waiting for you when you get home, so try this when you know you're going to have a busy day and no time (or energy) for cooking!

See below for pictures.

tip:  I always spray the crockpot first so nothing sticks to it and cleanup is a breeze!

Just stir.

That's where all the goodness is!

My crock pot is my best friend. It's so nice to just throw something together in the morning and then come home to a great smelling dinner. YUM!

This looks delicious. And you know what else? Carrots that have been in the Crock-Pot with the roast all day are absolutely yummy. I have Crock-Pot roast all the time, but never thought to put in the Italian seasoning or dry ranch dressing. We always put ours over noodles. :) Mmm, beef & noodles.
