    yooper's Note:

    Amazing flavor, and so simple! No salt needed here. In fact, you may wish to use half the ranch dressing mix to cut back on the saltiness. Found this Crock-Pot pot roast recipe on of a website called www.recipegoldmine.com. It's all the rage there, so I thought I'd try it.

      I bought a very cheap roast and stabbed it all over with a fork (just to make sure that it was dead). I used the mixed dry ingredients as a rub before sprinkling the rest over the meat. Like other people, I cut the dressing mix somewhat (but I did so to reduce the sodium content and not to alter the taste). Being a strong advocate of one-dish meals, especially for busy weeknights, I dumped my veggies (baby spuds, chopped rutabaga, baby carrots and pearl onions) in the crock and what a pleasant surprise! – the cooked veggies were the most delicious, savoury root veggies I have ever tasted. The taste of the veggies was more influenced, but most certainly not overpowered, by the dry ingredients than the beef was. All in all, this recipe surely deserves its place at the top of the pyramid.

      It's as good as everyone says! I used a boneless chuck roast (3 lb) and cut the ranch dressing in half. I added an additional 1/4 cup water. I cooked it 9 hours. It came out very tender, and with a gravy that was superb! Served with mashed potatoes and steamed fresh garden peas. Thanks, yooper! This is one that I will repeat!!

      This recipe is excellent. Any kind of roast works well. I did try to reduce the salt by adding 1/2 package of ranch dressing, but I found the majority of salt was coming from the Italian dressing. So I added full package of ranch and brown gravy and 1/2 package of italian dressing and it was WONDERFUL. My two year old ate 3 helpings.
