Recipe Review: 3 Envelope Roast

3 Envelope Roast

3 pound beef roast such as chuck roast
1 envelope of dry Italian salad dressing mix (I used half)
1 envelope of dry ranch salad dressing mix (I used half)
1 envelope of dry brown gravy mix
2 cups water

Instructions :
Put the water in a measuring cup that is larger then the amount of water you are using. Now add and mix all three envelopes of dry salad dressings to the water. Mix until blended completely.
Brown the roast (if desired). Add the meat to your cooker. Pour the water, salad dressing mixture over the roast. In the slow cooker cook it on high for about 4 hours on low about 8 hours.

I added 4 cups of water to the roast so I could make a big batch of gravy. I scooped the gravy out with a ladle, heated it to a boiling and added a cup of water that had a few spoons of corn starch dissolved. Add some pepper and salt and it was good.

I give it a 4/5 stars it was really good and tender.
