Darn Good Roast

I saw a recipe awhile ago that used salad dressing, ranch packets, gravy packets, and a big chuck roast. I wasn't too excited about it until I saw it was in a crockpot and cooked for 9 hours. Hmmm... I decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. I left out the gravy because I am not a huge fan of gravy. Unless it is ham gravy. I could talk about ham gravy all day, but I won't. I love it. Anyways, this turned out really well, and I will defiantly be making this again. Next time I am going to try and make my own italian dressing. Enjoy!
2- 2 1/2 lb chuck roast
1 bottle of light italian salad dressing
1 packet of ranch dressing mix
1 packet of brown gravy mix (I left this out)
1 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup water
black pepper

Mix italian dressing, ranch packet, and garlic together. Season roast with salt and pepper. Place roast in crockpot. Pour italian dressing mixture over roast. Set crockpot to low and cook 7-9 hours.


  1. Wow. my husband doesn't eat meat anymore and this roast looks so tempting! I wish I could bring home the beef, and make one for me.

  2. Sounds delish and best of all, easy. Did you add any veggies? I am going to try it tomorrow with carrots and onions. Thanks for the recioe!

  3. I don't, but it would be really good with some! Next time I will do that. Good call!

  4. This is really close to a recipe I have called 3 envelope chicken - it's super delicious!

    I will definitely have to try this one!
