My new favorite pot roast

I had a pot roast in the freezer that needed to be used.  I got it on sale and with a coupon at Kroger a few weeks ago, and it was just waiting to be cooked.  After reaching a new low last night, and serving canned chicken noodle soup and a reheated sourdough roll from the Wal-Mart bakery, I knew I needed to make something for dinner.  But I knew I would be plum tuckered out when I got home (can you say yucky cold thing at the start of the school year).  So I made dinner this morning in the crock pot.  It went like this:

Dump some water in the crock pot.

Toss in a packet of Mushroom Gravy seasoning stuff

Toss in a packet of dry Italian seasoning

Toss in a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dry dressing

Stir it all up.

Drop in the roast.

Cook on low.

I just tasted a little bite when I got home, and MERCY!  It is danged good!  I want to spoon out the broth and drink it straight.  I’ve never had that sort of feeling about a meat broth.  In fact, six years ago I told my mother I hated the taste of red meat.  And I’m still pretty fussy about my cow meat.  Now, I cannot wait until dinner tonight (or until pot roast is on sale again).  Holy Cow is it good.

How funny! That is our FAVORITE roast recipe! We absolutely love it and I make it almost once a week! It is so easy and it has so much flavor! We love ours over pasta and I always add carrots and potatoes to it, they taste super yummy cooking with the roast! I got the recipe off of recipezaar.com a couple of years ago. Everyone loves it on there too!
