To Die For Roast

Recommended Posts

I thought I found this recipe on BCB, but when I did a search I couldn't find it. My apologies for not giving proper credit.

 

I made this recipe tonight for dinner. It cooked on low for about 6 hours and it was awesome! I served it with noodles and a salad. Definitely a keeper!

 

To Die For Roast

 

1 pkg ranch dressing mix

1 pkg brown gravy mix

1 pkg Italian dressing mix

1 beef roast

1/2 cup water

 

Cook on low all day

This sounds great! Do you know what the points/servings are? If not I'll just calculate them myself. Thanks!

Loggerlady...the servings would depend on the size of your roast. Unfortunetly, I trashed the envelopes before calculating the points. I'll post the points as soon as I have that information.

 

Do try this one. The 3 envelopes make the most delicious tasting gravy. I thought it sounded rather strange, but the name of this recipe made me try it. I'm so glad I did. It's great!

I made this yesterday and it was wonderful. I was sceptical because of the mixture of seasonings that were added to it but they made it very rich and good. It was a little high in points for my taste, beef has become a luxury anymore, but this is a very good recipe.

Tried this recipe, my family loved it. A very big hit. They ate all of the roast no left overs left.

 

Thankyou

Have made this before, and it was a huge hit! My two teenage sons absolutely loved it. Haven't made it in a long while, thanks for reminding me of it! ;)

I finally made this and it was great like everyone has said. If any of you have points for this I would appreciate them, as I also threw the packages out already. Oops!

I made this tonight. I had a house full of company. It was very good. I actually put two big roasts in the crockpot, but still used the same number of seasoning packets. Everyone loved it and it was very tender. Two thumbs up.:)

I just put this in Mastercook and came up with 7.3 points per serving. I had the roast at 1 pound and serving 4. Hope this helps.

I may try this using chicken breast and changing the gravy mix to chicken gravy. I pointed that out to be 3.6 points per serving.

I have questions. Did you use an expensive lean roast or will a chuck roast, trimmed of fat be ok? Did you brown the meat first? Do you cut the meat up or put the roast in whole...I am assuming it's whole.

Oh, one more ??. I don't have any "italian seasoning packet or italian dressing mix" do you think a little italian seasoning spice and oregano would produce same results?

I've got this in the CP this morning and it smells wonderful! I added cut up potatoes and baby carrots and used a "beef chuck top blade roast" (3 oz = 7 pts).

 

For those that were interested in the calories for the seasoning packets, they are very low. I used -

 

Good Seasons Italian (8 servings per pkg) - 2.5 g dry mix = 5 c / 0 f

McCormick Brown Gravy Mix (4 servings per pkg) - 1 tbsp dry mix = 20 c / .5 g f

Hidden Valley Original Ranch (16 servings per pkg) - 1.8 g dry mix = 5 c / 0 f

Help I have a question! I'm making this tomorrow and need to know something. Do you only use 1/2 cup water, regardless of how big the roast is? My roast is almost 3 lbs (should it be that big?). Any help would be appreciated because I've never even used a crockpot before :) Thanks!

I think you can use considerably more water, if you want to. I used a cup and was very happy with the results. A coworker that I shared the recipe with said she would use a bit more than that the next time, to cut the saltiness. Personally, I don't think 1/2 cup is enough, but you can always taste it near the time you want it done, and add more water if it needs it.

 

To whomever first shared that recipe: :jump_jack Thanks a bunch! It's SOOOO good! I cut slices of roast, laid them on plain pieces of sourdough, toasted it all slightly, and dipped in the (skimmed) sauce. It was nirvana... so I had the same thing again the next night! :)
