My Really Good Beef Roast (Crock Pot)

Recipe by CarahsMama
READY IN: 5hrs 10mins




  • Rinse roast under cool water.
  • Add roast to crock pot.
  • Sprinkle brown gravy mix on and around roast.
  • Add 1/2 cup water around roast.
  • Add quartered potatoes around roast.
  • Sprinkle ranch mix over roast and potatoes.
  • Season potatoes with salt.
  • Set crock pot on high for 3 hours.
  • 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.
  • Change setting to low for 2 more hours.
  • Slice roast on serving platter, surround with veggies.
  • Serve gravy or au jus on the side.
  • *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.
  • *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.
