3 Fabulous Crock Pot Meals!

I'm linking up with the fabulous Dweej today!  I'm sharing not one but three, that's right three, fabulous crock pot dinners.  They are easy and we love each one of them!


Mississippi Roast

Ingredients:
1 chuck roast (4-5lbs)
1 packet ranch dressing/dip mix
1 packet McCormick's Gravy Mix  (au jus)
1 stick butter
5-10 pepperoncini peppers

Directions:
Mix the ranch packet and the gravy pack together.  Sprinkle on chuck roast.
Put a stick of butter on top of  the roast.  Place peppers on top.
Cook in slow cooker on low 4-6 hours until done.

And when I made it last night, I didn't even mix the spice packs.  I just sprinkled them separately.  And you read it correctly - there is no liquid in this other than the better when it melts.

Meat cooked in butter?  What's not to love?

It doesn't look like much in the crock pot before it cooks.



Or even when it's done cooking.   But it is yummy! 






And because my husband loves him some beef, here's another pot roast recipe:

3 Packet Pot Roast
 
Ingredients:
1 cup water
1 (.7 ounce) packet dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
1 (1 ounce) packet ranch dressing mix
1 (.75 ounce) packet dry brown gravy
1 (3 pound) boneless chuck roast

Directions: 
Whisk together water and contents of all packets until smooth.  Place beef roast into crock pot and pour the sauce over the top.  Cook on low for about 6 hours.


And because man can't live on beef alone, here's a yummy one pot chicken meal:

Crock Pot Italian Chicken and Potatoes

Ingredients:
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup Italian salad dressing
2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
carrots, peeled and cut into chunks

Directions:

Place chicken in crock pot.  Sprinkle with half the Italian dressing, spices and cheese.  Place carrots and potatoes around the chicken and cover with remaining dressing, spices and cheese.  Cook on low for about 6 hours.

We just had the Mississippi Mud Roast for Christmas in July. It was delightful! (Again.)

These sound wonderful! With school starting in less than two weeks and busyness that comes with the school year my crockpot will be out often.

My mouth is watering. These will all be eaten at my house before the summer is over!

Those sound great! I'm trying that last one, if I ever get around to cooking again.

These all look good! I think you may have posted the first one before, or I've seen it somewhere else. Do the peppers make it spicy?

These do look fantastic. I also live with a carnivore; he loves big crock pot meals. They are so easy too!!!
