3 Packet Pot Roast

Brown Gravy Mix
Ranch Dressing Mix
Italian Dressing Mix
Onion (Optional)
Baby Carrots
1/2-1 cup water
Oh yeah, and a roast. I usually use a rump roast, with a nice thick layer of fat (trust me)

This recipe is really complicated so you're gonna want to pay attention.

Slice onion and lay on the bottom of your crock pot.

Unwrap your roast and set on top of the onions, fat side up.

Not unwrapping it may lead to a big disappointment at dinnertime. You've been warned.

Open all 3 packets and mix together in a separate bowl. Pour over top of roast.

Add Potatoes, carrots and a 1/2-1 cup water (The recipe I had called for 1/2, I always do 1 full cup)

Cover roast and cook on low for about 7-8 hours.

This is the only roast recipe I have done that always turns out this moist and flavorful. If it doesn't work for you, I would recommend giving up cooking and hiring a personal chef.

If you want to make gravy, you can just strain the juice to get the junk out of it and then you're on your own. I am not a gravy connoisseur, so you'd better go call your mother.

How did you know the 3 packets would work together?

I actually saw this on another blog a while back and have used it ever since. The flavors really compliment each other!
