The Easiest Crockpot Roast Ever

I've seen this floating around Pinterest and I have no idea where it originated or who to give credit to, so I guess I'll list Pinterest as the source! Ha! I didn't pin it myself - I just made a mental note of the ingredients! I've seen it on probably 15 blogs as well, and none of them credited each other so I really don't know whose idea it was, but it wasn't mine!

So, enough of my "this isn't mine but I don't know whose it is" disclaimer.

So, here's what I did, and not actually having followed anyone's directions, I don't know if this is "correct" but it turned out for me.

Easiest Crockpot Roast Ever
source: A whole lotta people, everywhere - this particular version comes from me - I think.

2lb chuck roast
1 cup water
1 package buttermilk Ranch dressing mix
1 package Italian dressing mix
1 package brown gravy mix
Salt and Pepper
Carrots - optional

First, start with a 2lb chuck roast.

Cover it with salt and pepper and place it in the crockpot.

In a bowl, whisk water with the 3 packaged mixes. Pour over roast. Cook for 6-8 hours on Medium. Throw in the carrots for the last hour.

So my verdict on this - it's very good but a little salty for me. Also, it doesn't fall apart like my mom's roast recipe does - I"ll make that next time and post it. It's AWESOME.

So - totally worth it for a quick and easy dinner, but not my very favorite recipe. I will make it again though.
