Finally got around to fixing this for dinner tonight. It was well worth the wait. Just like some of the others I only added 1/2 of the Italian dressing. The gravy was wonderful. This certainly deserves its place at the top.
Yooper, you have a winner here! The roast was tender and moist, and after having frozen some of the slices and broth for a couple of weeks, it came out just as juicy and tender when reheated as leftovers. I used a rump roast, put in 1 cup rather than 1/2 cup of water, and used only half of the dried Italian salad dressing mix. It was perfect. Thank you for this great recipe!
The meat was tender, but I didn't like the taste of it very much. I don't know if it was maybe because of the dressing mixes I used (I made my own Italian salad dressing mix, and bought a gravy mix with herbs).
I wasn't thrilled with this recipe. The flavors were okay, and it may have been the roast I used, but nobody in my house was impressed. I'm not sure I'll even try this one again. Meat wasn't tender, and we didn't think this one deserved the "to die for."
I tried this and it was okay, but it needed something.....maybe I did something wrong??!!! I will give it another try, maybe will be different next time.
This roast was awesome! THe best recipe I have tried for roast yet! My family loved it. I followed the recipe exactly as written. In fact, I am having a dinner party this week and serving it for the main course. It is a real winner. I will be making it again and again. Thank you.
This recipe was terrific! I used an onion brown gravy mix, all of the ranch dressing mix, and about 3/4 of the italian mix. Mixed the ingredients and rubbed them onto a chuck eye roast and whenever it wouldn't stick to the meat any more I poured the rest of the mixes on top of the meat. I put about 3/4 cup of water around the meat and cooked on low for about 8 1/2 hours and it was delicious. As for the comments about being too salty, it was salty tasting, but not too salty for this family! Thanks for a great recipe.
My experience with this roast was a little disappointing. I followed the recipe to the letter other than adding some veggies for the last 3 hours of cooking. The roast was dry and didn't taste much different than the roast I usually make in the crockpot with salt and pepper as seasoning. I will probably try this again with less of the seasonings (as others have suggested) and maybe I will make the juice more of a gravy by adding browned flour when it is done.
It is a good thing I put this on early yesterday morning because by the time it was time to eat, we lost our power. Alicia and I enjoyed this very delicious roast by candle light. I didn't have a package of brown gravy mix but I did have a can of beef broth so used it and both packages of salad dressings. The flavor was excellent and made a very tasty gravy that I thicken with flour. Thanks yooper
This makes a very good roast. I cut back on the italian dressing mix and the ranch mix and it was perfect! I will use this recipe again.
