Crock Pot Roast Beef
1 (4 - 5 pound) beef roast, any kind
1 (1 1/4 ounce) package brown gravy mix, dry
1 (1 1/4 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix, dry
1 (1 1/4 ounce) package ranch dressing mix, dry
1/2 cup water
Carrots, onions, or potatoes, if desired

In a small bowl, combine the brown gravy mix, Italian dressing mix, and ranch dressing mix. Use the combined mixes as a dry rub on both sides of the beef roast. Place the roast in the crock pot. Pour the water around the roast. Add vegetables as desired. Cook on LOW for 7 - 9 hours.

Combine the three mix packages together.

Place the roast in a shallow pan.

Rub the roast down on both sides with the combined mixes. My roast was not as large as the recipe indicated, so I did not need all the seasoning. You may want to reserve some of the seasoning for another time if your roast is small. Place the roast in the crockpot with the water and any vegetables you choose.

This unique blend of seasonings adds a little extra pizzazz to an ordinary beef roast, and nothing is easier to prepare than a crockpot meal!


  1. That roast looks so good! I have been working on a new header all afternoon and have not stopped for lunch so I feel like I could eat at least a man size portion of you roast. I want to try the seasonings with the meat- sounds delicious. Now, back to work and then some lunch-dinner for me.------- Shannon
