Simple Crock-Pot Beef Pot Roast Ingredients:

  • 4 - 5 pounds beef oven roast (I used tip roast), cut into large chunks
  • 3 pounds red potatoes, quartered
  • 1 & 1/2 pounds baby carrots
  • 1 large yellow (sweet) onion, cut in large chunks
  • 3 packets dry ranch dressing mix (1 ounce packets)
  • 1 cup hot water (OR 1 cup red wine)
  • optional ingredients: celery, garlic, green beans

Simple Crock-Pot Beef Pot Roast Directions:

  1. Mix one packet of ranch dressing mix with hot water. Place potatoes, carrots and onion at the bottom of your slow cooker and pour ranch dressing/water mix over vegetables.
  2. In a large bowl coat beef with remaining two packets of ranch dressing mix. Place beef over vegetables in crock pot and cover.
  3. Cook on high for one hour, then switch to low for approximately 8- 10 hours, or until meat reaches desired tenderness.
  4. Serve in a bowl, with a fork, and a side of fresh baked bread for soaking up the gravy! ENJOY!

Simple Crock-Pot Beef Pot Roast Gravy:

  • This method uses the ratio 2 tablespoons of flour to 1 cup of liquid. You can make as much or little as you want with this ratio in mind.
  • Pour a small amount (about 2 - 3 tablespoons) of juice from your cooked roast into a sauce pan and add 2 tablespoons of flour. Whisk together over medium heat for two to three minutes.
  • Slowly pour in remaining one cup of roast juice and incorporate with a whisk. Bring to a low boil and then lower heat. Simmer until gravy reaches desired consistency then salt and pepper to taste.
