Anyone else love the crock-pot? I certainly do these days. It's a means of survival - especially when we have soccer Monday - Thursday evenings. It is the only way that we don't have cereal, eggs or grilled cheese sandwiches as our only meal options.
I recently tried this recipe (unfortunately I cannot locate where I got it from or I would link to it) and the boys loved it. Simms and I thought it was a bit salty but we don't regularly salt our food. Next time I might look for low sodium options but for now, if you are interested in trying something new and VERY easy keep on reading.
Super Easy Pot Roast:
1 beef roast - any kind. (I used 3 lbs)
1 (1.25 oz) package dry brown gravy mix
1 (1.25 oz) dry Italian salad dressing mix
1 (1.25 oz) dry ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup water
1. Place beef roast in crock pot (I always spray my crock-pot first with Pam cooking spray as per Promises suggestion and it makes the clean up a whole lot easier).
2. Mix the dried mixes together in a bowl (I use a fork) and sprinkle over the roast.
3. Pour the water around the roast.
4. Cook on low for 7-9 hours.
I then cook up some egg noodles because this kind of meal reminds me of my Gramma and she always had egg noodles. A healthier option would be some whole wheat pasta. I also add a vegetable and a salad. Yum!
