What you'll need:
- A good cut of beef chuck for the roast itself; this recipe calls for about 2 2.5-pound chucks, but I usually just make one 2-3 pound piece. Make sure that it is marbled and has lots of fat. The better the cut, the more delicious the roast.
- 1 packet dry salad dressing - Italian
- 1 packet dry salad dressing - Ranch
- 1 packet dry Brown Gravy
- 1/2 cup of water
I know what you're thinking. That's it? And yes. That's it. There's literally nothing to it and it comes out amazing. I have witnesses to prove it.
Put the roast in the slow cooker. In a bowl, mix the salad dressing, gravy and water. Then poor over the meat.
Set your slow cooker for 8 hours on a low setting and enjoy the afternoon.
Unfortunately, there are no "ready" pictures because someone, *cough* Jon *cough* dug in pretty much the second the timer went off.
I suggest serving it with delicious, cheese mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. That's what we had for our last Christmas with just the two of us.
