Best Slow Cooker Roast EVER was shared by Facebook friend Jen B. D., and she says it is a favorite of hers and her family! We made it and have to agree, this is one of the best roasts ever.  Please let us know how you like it in the comments below!

  1. If carrots and potatoes are wanted, cut them to your liking and put in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Place Roast on top of vegetables.
  3. Sprinkle all 3 spice envelopes (ranch, Italian and gravy) on top of the roast.
  4. Add the water, adjust for the size of the roast.
  5. Cover. Cook on Low for 6-10 hours until tender and veggies cooked through.

NOTE: It is better to cook the roast longer. (can use a meat thermometer to make sure roast is done)

Happy Crocking!

This is my favorite roast recipe! Been making it for years. But along with the cup of water, add a can of Coke (or Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, whatever you have). Sounds a little weird, but it makes it so tender! Falls apart! Just try it, you will be amazed!

should there just be the amount of water mentioned in the crockpot or should the water cover the veggies or the roast? Thanks.

im going to make your recipe today,it sounds absolutly delish!! I also found one on facebook but it had no pkg of Italian and didn’t call for any water, it also called for five pepperoncini peppers and a stick of butter on top ( sounds a bit much ewww GAK) lol. Have you tried this one yourself?

This sounds delicious but don’t the potatoes and carrots turn to mush by cooking it for so long?

Instead of using the 3 seasoning packets, could I just add the separate seasonings myself? If so, which specific seasonings & what measurements? The seasoning packets have a lot of salt, and most have artificial, nasty ingredients, so I’d like to season myself to control salt & avoid nasty chemicals.

As another option, could I use bottled Italian or Ranch dressing, and jared gravy? What about beef broth as an option for flavor in lieu of the water?

I’m just looking for other seasoning options besides the packets as I just never use those.

If you put the veggies on top will they still cook ok, or should I just put them on the bottom??

OMG – this is SO good! I made it yesterday while I was visiting my Mom so my boys would have dinner. There was a small bowl of leftovers and that was just because the boys didn’t want to be rude so they left me some!! Cannot wait to make this again. It is easy and hearty. A perfect year-round meal! 🙂
