This meal is heaven in a crockpot!!! We loved it. Not too salty, not too bland and very flavorful. I added a bag of baby carrots, 5 potatoes cut up, and an onion. I used a little extra water too. I put it in at 11 in the morning, left it on high, and it was falling apart by 6. Very easy, delicious and hearty meal. I will recommend this to everyone. Thank you for this awesome recipe!
Wonderful Roast Beef! I sprinkled all the packets into the empty crock pot, then added 2 cups of hot water an stirred it well to get rid of the lumps. I always brown my roast with vinegar and butter then add it to the crock pot, add more water to get itto cover the meat, then I cover that with aluminum foil to keep the moisture low and put the lid on. Cooked it on high for about 9 hours and it was fall apart, tender and perfect. The whole family raved about it. It's so nice to just let it cook all day then I can tend to other things in the afternoon rather than work in the kitchen!
This was good... a perfectly good pot roast... but I wouldn't call it "to die for". I guess from all the reviews and the description I expected something beyond incredible. It was ok. Much like a pot roast I would make the regular way. But I will say it was a very easy way to prepare a roast!
Everything has already been said about this recipe. I really enjoyed the flavor and how easy this is to make. :)
Perhaps 3 1/2 stars would be accurate. I only used half the Italian and ranch dressing. I did find the gravy to be very flavourful and it was certainly salty enough for my taste. I put some vegetables in and I thought I had cut them small enough but that was not the case. They were not done. I guess I was expecting something sensational here and didn't achieve it.
This was pretty good, but I have a rather large slow cooker, so I had to add a little more water to cover the bottom and to have something for the potatoes to swim in! lol Very delicious! I also made Lennie's Wendy's Rhubarb Stir Cake, (rhubarb cake) to finish off the meal and my husband said it made his "engine purr"! Thanks for posting!
This roast was absolutely delicious. I also only used half a package of ranch dressing mix. The flavor/saltiness was just right for us. The meat was oh so tender and juicy. You add that to the ease of preparation, a person just couldn't ask for more. Thanks yooper, I can see why this is so popular.
After reading all the great reviews, I had to see what all the fuss was about. This is every bit as good as everyone says it is. I used a chuck roast and halved the Ranch dressing like you suggested. Cooked for 8 hours. It turned out perfect. Moist, tender and delicious gravy. This is a perfect recipe for busy, time-challenged people. Thanks yooper.
Served this receipe at the camp this weekend and everyone really liked it. It was quick and easy and I got to fish at the same time.
This roast was excellent! I didn't have the italian dressing so I just used the gravy and ranch mixes and it came out great. Everyone loved it. I'll try the italian next time but I think I'll use half of all the packets and use the rest next time. Thanks for a great recipe!
