    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.

    YUM!

    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?

    I usually put it on around 7 or 8 pm and it's ready when I get up around 5 am. Most of the time I'm taking it to church pot luck. It may be ready sooner - I'm just not up to check it. I might add, on my newer crock pot I start it on high and turn it down to low (after 2-3 hrs) before going to bed. Seems the newer crocks cook at a higher temp. Everyone wants my gravy recipe. Actually I think you could put cream of mushroom soup on anything and it would make it taste good.

    I've done almost the same roast but instead of the onion soup mix and Hidden Valley, I added Dry Italian Dressing mix. It is awesome. Now I will try this!!! Sounds so good!!!
    There is no place like home!

    love gravy when I make pot roast in the crock pot but I don't love the roast.
    although the meat falls apart it isn't tender. I've tried chuck and round with the same results.

    This reminds me one time we had a family emergency and roast in the oven. Took the roast out of the oven and put into the fridge. It was done. Got home in the early a.m. Got up for breakfast and heated part of the roast up. Fried up some eggs and that was one of the best breakfasts we ever had. Every once in awhile I do that for myself if DH has to go into the office earlier than I have to get up.

    The slow cooker is good with a rump roast too. No fat. But very good.

    I do my roast this way too. Just doesn't get any easier.

    This is an absolutely great recipe. I used a small eye of round roast and cut it into pieces so it would cook faster. I did everything just like the recipe called for except that I cooked the roast in a 350 degree oven using a 5 qt Magnalite Dutch Oven and added about an extra cup of water. I cooked it covered the whole time. About 2 1/2 hours later, it was done. I found it a little bit salty. The next time, I won't use any salt in my potatoes when I am boiling them for the mashed potatoes. It still had both my husband and myself oohing and aahing. Absolutely the best tasting roast I have had in a long time.
