    Carah'sMama's Note:

    I don't think I've ever made crock pot roast the same twice but this one was really good so I decided I would post it so I could remember it next time. Few ingredients for an easy supper. Makes an excellent au jus or gravy.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse roast under cool water.
    2. 2
      Add roast to crock pot.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle brown gravy mix on and around roast.
    4. 4
      Add 1/2 cup water around roast.
    5. 5
      Add quartered potatoes around roast.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle ranch mix over roast and potatoes.
    7. 7
      Season potatoes with salt.
    8. 8
      Set crock pot on high for 3 hours.
    9. 9
      Cut carrots same size as quartered potatoes or if using baby carrots, use whole. Add carrots and additional 1/2 cup water if you like a thinner gravy or au jus.
    10. 10
      Change setting to low for 2 more hours.
    11. 11
      Slice roast on serving platter, surround with veggies.
    12. 12
      Serve gravy or au jus on the side.
    13. 13
      *Any cut of roast would probably work, but this is a good, lean cut that doesn't require trimming and also slices nicely. A larger roast may also be used.
    14. 14
      *Cooking: You can also add the carrots after step 7 and cook on low for 6-8 hours total. The carrots will just be a little softer than the other method.

      One of tastiest, most tender roasts we've ever had-- a true keeper. Did add some celery and a bit of red wine after the three hours on high and think in future will include some onion as well-- just a matter of personal tastes. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

      I made this recipe on 10/25/11 for mine and my SO's dinner, and most importantly the 2011 Fall PAC event.Except for adding the carrots at Step 7, the recipe was made as it was written.Since I added the carrots early, the meal was cooked for 7 hours on low.I wasn't able to slice the roast, it completely feel apart :). The seasonings from the ranch dressing and the gravy mix combined with the roast juices and water made a very good Au jus dip.My SO said that anytime I wanted to make this would be alright with him.And take it from me, that's a big compliment. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

      Made this yesterday and it was really good. The ranch dressing mix gave it a really unique taste. Only thing I changed was the use of regular salt instead of kosher salt and I added a little extra water in order to cover the potatoes and carrots. But when done, removed veggies and roast and added a little cornstarch to thicken gravy. Turned out excellent. This is a keeper!
