Going into the slow cooker for dinner tonight...Three Packet Pot Roast!

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

It's a fairly gray and overcast day today, so I'm feeling in the mood for something substantial and "homey" for dinner tonight.  Bring on the pot roast and mashed potatoes!

This one is really easy, and uses basic stuff from your food storage.

Three Packet Pot Roast
1 envelope Italian dressing mix
1 envelope ranch dressing mix (you can see I've used my homemade mix here - 1 Tbsp.)
1 can beef broth (or you can use 1 envelope brown gravy mix + 1 cup water)
3lb pot roast (or thereabouts)

Stick it all in the slow cooker and let it go until tender!

I'm working with a frozen pot roast this morning, so my slow cooker is on high, but I will turn it down to low after about an hour or so, when the roast has thawed.
