Normally when I cook a pot roast, I do it in the oven. I honestly don’t have a clue why, since it’s easier to use (and clean) a crock pot. Maybe it’s just because I’m more use to cooking it in the oven, and that’s how I was taught. Maybe it’s because I have more room to add veggies. Who knows.
Regardless, everyone has their preferences. While I prefer the oven, others prefer a crock pot. So here’s a recipe for a tasty crock pot pot roast which comes right out of the crock pot ebook:
Crockpot Pot Roast
2 1/2 lb. Chuck roast
2 packets dry Italian dressing mix OR Ranch dressing mix
1 cup water
Place beef in crockpot, sprinkle seasonings over meat, pour water over all. Cook on low 6-8 hours or until meat shreds easily.
What’s great about this particular recipe is it’s super easy to tweek. Instead of the dressing mix, just add your own spices. I prefer things like garlic salt, fennel seeds, and sometimes other Italian spices. Really though it’s up to you what you add to the pot. 😉
