Easiest Ever Crock Pot Roast
It doesn't get much easier than this...
1/2 cup water
1 packet Italian Dressing Mix
1 packet Ranch Dressing Mix
1 packet Brown Gravy Mix
1 Beef Roast, sized for your crock pot
Mixed vegetables (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower--you can use a bag of the frozen stuff if you're in a hurry)
2-3 potatoes (skins on), cut into hunks. (You can use canned new potatoes if you're in a pinch)
Pour 1/2 cup water into base of crock pot and place roast inside. Pour dressing packets and gravy packet over roast. Cover and cook 4 hours on Low. Add potatoes and vegetables around the roast. Cook another 2 hours on Low. (You'll want to cook the roast for 6-7 hours, total)
(Veggies still frozen in this one, but you get the picture)
I didn't have time to bake bread, and forgot to pick some fresh stuff up at the store, so we settled for (don't judge me!) frozen biscuits. They were not bad.
