Pot Roast

My family is really starting to enjoy Thursday dinners.
This is when I prepare a meal for Recipe Swap Fridays.
This just thrills everyone, I spend the afternoon making our all time favorites.

This week was pot roast. It took me forever to create a great roast recipe. I tried dozens of recipes and then edited them and tried them again and again till I found one that was just right for us.

Here's what you'll need:
1 roast (I prefer a sirloin cut but choose your favorite)
1 small onion, chopped
4 small potatoes, halved
1 package of peas
1 cup baby carrots
1 seasoning package of brown gravy mix
1 seasoning package of ranch dressing mix
1 seasoning package of mild Italian dressing mix
1/2 cup of hot water
4 tbsp butter

Mix all 3 seasoning packages in the 1/2 cup of hot water.
Add all other ingredients to a crock pot and then pour seasoned water over all.
Cover and cook on high for 6 -7 hours depending on the size of the roast
I only uncover my dish once throughout cooking to stir 



  1. Aaaaah this looks really yummi. If we made your Pot Roast for maincourse and then Angels cake for dessert, then we wouldn´t be able to move at all after such a treat ha ha ha.
    Have a wonderful week-end/Whitsun ahead here now and enjoy the extra day off everyone.

  2. Mmmmm... this does look good! Belly's filled to the brim and plates licked I'm sure :)
