Simple Pot Roast

I am a "pot roast queen." I make a meeeean pot roast. When I had two growing, hungry boys it was a "once a week" staple. Brian loves it and it is his special birthday dinner every year.

I found a new pot roast recipe recently and decided to give it a try. I have NO idea where I got it...probably off Facebook. I saw it and printed it. Typical.

I really should pay more attention so I can give proper credit!

Getting me to deviate from a "tried and true" dish is a real challenge...but I have forced myself to experiment a little just to get out of my 30 year!

This recipe was worth it. SOOOOO simple! The recipe said to cook it in the crock pot for 8 hours on low, but it was more than done after 6 hours! 

Put one 1 Pot Roast in the crock pot...seriously, the cheapest pot roast you can find will work! (Who doesn't love a good recipe for inexpensive cuts of meat these days!)

Sprinkle a package of Hidden Valley ranch dressing and McCormick Au Jus mix on top.

Put a stick of butter on top.

Put about 5 pepperoncini peppers on top (I didn't have was still good!)

Do NOT add water!

Cook on low for 8 hours (again, it was more than done after 6)

I made gravy with the juices. Put it over wild rice.


You could serve with noodles, rice or potatoes. Throw in a salad or veggie.

SOOOOO simple.

Just my kind of meal!
