Three Packs and a Roast

READY IN: 8hrs 5mins
Recipe by Jackie H.

If you are trying to cut your food cost this is a great and tasty way to do it. I always buy the cheapest beef roast I can to do this with. Yes, it is also the toughest cut but after cooking in the crockpot all day, it is very good and tender. Put the gravy on some mashec potatoes, or spoon over cornbread muffins. OOh Yeah...

The flavor of this roast was delish! The roast, however, did turn out a bit dryer than im used to. but then again I ended up cooking it on high due to a time crunch. Will definatly make this again! thanks for posting!
