    Best crockpot roast ever!

    I found this on facebook and tried it...OMG it's absolutely the best pot roast I have ever had.

    1 4 or 5# boneless chuck roast
    1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
    1 pkg. dry Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix
    1 pkg. dry Au Jus mix
    1 cup beef broth

    Mix all dry mixes in the one cup of broth until all dissolved. Put roast in crockpot, pour broth mixture over. Set crockpot on low for 8 hours.

    That's it...couldn't be easier. I served mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli with it. The gravy from the pot is great over the potatoes.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I made a roast very similar to your recipe, and it was a HUGE hit with DH! I even liked it, and I don't like ranch dressing or peppers. LOL!

    Mississippi Roast

    1 Roast
    1 Pkg Au Jus Mix
    1 Pkg Dry Ranch Dressing Mix
    5 Pepperoncini Peppers (comes in a jar; usually found with the pickles)
    1 Stick of Butter (I've used 1/2 a stick and it comes out just fine)

    Put the roast in the crock pot. (You can use tenderizer if the roast isn't that great a cut.) Don't add water or other liquids. Sprinkle on the au jus mix and the ranch dressing mix. Lay the butter on top of the roast (you can cut the butter into chunks if you want). Lay the 5 peppers on top of the roast, around the butter.

    Cook on low for 5-6 hours or until roast is done.

    It makes its own juice, which you can make into gravy or serve as dipping sauce.

    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    My crock pot roast always gets rave reviews and all I do is put roast in crock, salt & pepper, 2 cans cream of mushroom soup next morning it's ready to eat.

    I also enjoy this beef pot roast except I don't use the Au Jus mix. I mix all the dry ingredients together then pour over the pot roast. Add one cup of water all around the roast. Sometimes I add carrots, potatoes, and onions before I put the roast in.

    I have made this many times. I always get compliments on it. I use dry gravy mix instead of the au jus mix. It also makes excellent beef stew. I often drop the roast in the crock pot frozen solid in the morning and it is perfect when I get home.

    Do you cook this overnight and eat it in the morning? How long do you cook it?
