Super Easy Pot Roast

Super tender, juicy, fall-apart crock pot roast is not as hard as you think! This slow cooker recipe uses a few simple ingredients to make the most flavorful (yet stupid easy) pot roast ever!


Prep time: 5 mins Cook time: 8 hours Total time: 8 hours 5 mins

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
  • ½ cup of water


Mix the salad and gravy packets with water, pour over the roast and set in the slow cooker for 8 hours on low.
If you want to thicken the gravy after the roast is cooked, add some flour in a skillet with the au jus.
