The internet, we’ve all discovered by now, is useful for two things:
- Looking at pictures of cats
- Finding new recipes to try
I’m always sharing/saving recipes I’ve found, especially quick and easy ones. This one is definitely easy, and the preparation time is quick. It cooks in the slow cooker, so if you start it early in the day, your dinner will be waiting for you when you’re ready to eat.
You’ve probably seen it around. It’s the “Three-Packet Slow Cooker Roast” recipe, and it’s one you’ll definitely want to try.
- Whisk the water, Italian dressing mix, ranch dressing mix, and brown gravy mix together in a bowl until smooth. Place the beef roast into a slow cooker, and pour the sauce over top.
- Cook on Low until the roast is easily pierced by a fork, 6 to 8 hours.
Could it be any easier?
I finished off the last of the vegetables yesterday at lunch and still had broth left over. No way was I throwing it out. So this morning, I’ll be getting out the rice cooker. I plan to cook jasmine rice, add in sauteed mushrooms, and serve it with that flavorful beef broth. It will be a great accompaniment to veggie burgers, and I’ll be serving a side dish of mixed vegetables, too.
This recipe is definitely a keeper, so if you haven’t tried it yet, grab your shopping list and add the ingredients. Enjoy!
