Day 29 of 31 // Slow Cooker Pot Roast recipe + Two Ways to Serve It

Tuesday, October 29, 2013



There's an art, and quite possibly a science, to making dinner for your family each night isn't there.  Although I don't really enjoy menu planning and cooking, I do enjoy being the one that gets to serve my family in this way. 

But let's face it, crock pots are a beautiful thing aren't they? The setup is easy, and the outcome is delicious.  I am finding such art in walking through the door after a day of running around to the smell of dinner awaiting.

Mine gets a lot of use this time of year.  I thought I would share our current favorite crock pot recipe. 

// Three Packet Slow Cooker Pot Roast //  With two nights of dinner options!

I  N  G  R  E  D  I  E  N  T  S

2 to 3 pound beef roast
1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
1 pkg brown gravy mix
1 pkg Italian dressing mix 
3/4 cup water

D  I  R  E  C  T  I  O  N  S

Place roast in the crock pot and combine ranch mix, gravy mix, and Italian dressing mix with 3/4 cup of water.  Pour mixture over roast and cook on low for 6 hours.  Once beef is falling apart, take two forks and shred it a bit more.  Cook another hour or two. 

When it's done, you then have two days worth of food:

Day 1 // Serve the shredded beef over mashed potatoes with a side of roasted brussels sprouts or green beans.

Day 2 // Warm up leftover beef.  Place sliced mozzarella on the bottom of an Italian sub roll, then put warm beef & juices on top of the cheese to make Shredded Beef Sandwiches.  

Enjoy!
