What with all the busy things to be done right now, thought I would throw out an easy, but good pot roast recipe done in the crock pot that takes just a fraction of time to prepare.

1 or 2 chuck roasts 2.5 pounds each. I've used one 3.5 pound chuck roast, and it works just fine too.

1 envelope Ranch salad dressing mix

1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix

1 envelope brown gravy mix

1/2 cup water

Place the chuck roast(s) in the crock pot.

Mix the Ranch, Italian and brown gravy mix together in a small bowl, then add the 1/2 cup of water and mix until smooth.

Pour mixture over the chuck roast in the crock pot and cook on low heat setting for 7 to 8 hours.

Done. Quick, simple, tasty.

You can thicken the gravy afterwards if you wish, but I find it works fine just as is from the crock pot.

I won't take credit for this, as I did find it in a cookbook. We've had this many times, and always enjoyed it.

Have not, but I would certainly think one could. Of course, the roast is on the bottom of the crock pot, where the veggies normally go.

I would probably remove the roast, add potatoes, carrots, onions, etc. about 2 hrs before ending time, then put the roast back in and finish cooking. Make sure there is enough juice to cover the roast, don't want it drying out.

The carrots, onion, parsnip and potato will cook just fine spread over the roast if there is not room beside it. That is one of my favorite meals.

I'll hang onto your recipe and give it a try with potatoes and carrots. My wife lets me help... and I love crock-pot cooking.
