Need something to feed a crowd that fills that comfort food craving? Try this amazing roast. It uses chuck roast—easy on the budget—and a few packaged ingredients.
Toss it in the slow cooker while you go about your daily activities and it’ll be ready when you get home. Serve it as a roast, or shred and serve over noodles, mashed potatoes or rice. Shredded beef on a bun? Amazing!!
3 lb chuck or arm beef roast
1 (2 oz) package dry ranch dressing mix
1 (3 oz) package brown gravy mix
1 (2 oz) package Italian salad dressing mix
1 cup water
Trim any visible fat from the beef and place it in the slow cooker. Combine all three packages of mixes and sprinkle over the roast. Add the water. Cook on low for 7 to 9 hours.
Reduced-fat tip: after cooking, put the cooked meat and broth in the refrigerator. The fat will rise to the top of the container and you can easily skim it off.
