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
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!
3 Packet Pot Roast
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
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
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
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.
