Slow Cooker 3-Packet Beef Roast

  • Cooking Time:

    8.5 hours on Low, 4.5–5.5 hours on High
  • Servings:

    7–8

Ingredients

3 lb. chuck roast
3 c. water, total, divid­ed
1.0 oz. Ranch Sal­ad Dress­ing & Sea­son­ing Mix pack­et
.6 oz. Ital­ian sal­ad dress­ing mix pack­et
1.13 oz. McCormick’s Grill Mates pack­et, Pep­per­corn & Gar­lic

Talk about melt­ing in your mouth! Slow Cook­er 3-Pack­et Beef Roast is so easy to pre­pare, and the fla­vor is hard to top. This is sure to be a win­ner in your house. Enjoy!

  1. Trim roast of fat and place it into a 6 quart slow cook­er.
  2. Com­bine the con­tents of all 3 pack­ets. to cre­ate a dry mix
  3. Pour the dry mix over top of the roast. Flip the roast over a few times to get it cov­ered with sea­son­ings on all sides.
  4. Top with 1 cup of water.
  5. Option­al: Add in chopped pota­toes, onion, car­rots, and cel­ery, if desired.
  6. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 8.5 hours, or on High for 4.5 — 5.5 hours.
  7. 30 min­utes before serv­ing, add an addi­tion­al 2 cups of water and set slow cook­er to High.

NOTE: Wait­ing to add the last 2 cups of water will make a juicy gravy. If you want a lit­tle thick­er gravy, dis­solve a table­spoon of corn starch in warm water, and add slow­ly to get desired con­sis­ten­cy.

Could you do this recipe with the ranch and the Ital­ian in the bot­tle? I don’t like to buy the pack­ets of sea­son­ing due to MSG being in most of them. If so, how much would you sug­gest for both? Thank you!

Is 1 cup of water enough for the pota­toes and car­rots to cook through if we do opt for that option?

Kathy
Guest

Michele, you don’t want to use too much water when cook­ing in the crock pot, as it will boil the meat and make it tough. Put the pota­toes and car­rots on the bot­tom of the pot, under the meat, and the meat will be ten­der and deli­cious and the veg­gies will have more of the juice and fla­vors. Also, always spray your pot with cook­ing spray before adding food, it makes clean-up so much eas­i­er! xx

I’m crock­ing it right now as I post! I used a pack­et called “Crock Pot savory Pot roast sea­son­ing mix” only bcuz I didn’t find the Ital­ian dry sea­son­ing. I used1 cup water with caoursly cut up car­rots, onion, bell pep­per, and cel­ery n pota­toes. But was inspired by your site! I hope turns out great! : ))

I made this last night, and it was DELICIOUS! I used all the ingre­di­ents list­ed but I did not use all of it in the meat and it was still very flaver­ful. My 4 year old daugh­ter asked for sec­onds which was shock­ing because she’s a light eater. My broth­er in law was over and he had a reg­u­lar plate then made a sand­wich of it. I usu­al­ly have roast for 3 days them throw out out, how­ev­er I was scared last night that there would be no left overs.

I used Zesty Ital­ian instead of Reg­u­lar Ital­ian. Opps. Lets hope it works. Susan

I made this yes­ter­day and it was real­ly good, par­tic­u­lar­ly the veg­eta­bles! I put onions, baby car­rots, cel­ery, and red pota­toes on the bot­tom of the crock pot. I fol­lowed the rest of the instruc­tions per the recipe (but used a dif­fer­ent McCormick’s because I couldn’t find the one it called for). When I tried to pull the meat out of the slow cook­er, it fell apart! It was so ten­der and juicy! The veg­gies and pota­toes were cooked very nice­ly and had a ton of fla­vor. There was so much broth in the pot that I reserved some in… Read more »

I sub­sti­tute 1/4 c pow­dered but­ter­milk ( found in the gro­cery bak­ing aisle), Plus 1/2 teas each of gar­lic and onion pow­der. I’m sure one could look at the ingre­di­ents and find a sub­sti­tute for the Ital­ian dress­ing as well.

Mak­ing this now!!! Can’t wait to try it!!! I couldn’t find the grill mate so I just used gar­lic pow­der and pep­per­corn pep­per sep­a­rate­ly . I also added a lit­tle bit of onion pow­der. Hope it comes out great!!!!

Do you brown the roast before you put it in the crock pot? Thanks!

I made this tonight and it was real­ly good. How­ev­er, the sauce turned out to have a real­ly pep­pery fla­vor. This wasn’t a prob­lem for me but some mem­bers of my fam­i­ly couldn’t han­dle the spice of it. I’ll most like­ly be using half the pack­et of the McCormick gar­lic and pep­per­corn sea­son­ing next time. I also did it on high for 4 hours and I think it would have been more ten­der had I done it on low for 8. Over­all though, good com­bo of fla­vors and I would def­i­nite­ly rec­om­mend adding the veg­gies!

Made this for din­ner last night and it was awe­some. Best pot roast ever! The only vari­a­tion I made was instead of using the McCormicks pprcrn. Gar­lic I used a McCormicks Mon­tre­al Ssng pckt. Del­ish and ten­der.

BTW, I love your site. The recip­ies have giv­en my crock­pot new life.Thank you!

I have done this recipe before it’s very tasty,
just won­der­ing would it be as good with chick­en thighs?

Vicky

I made this the oth­er night and it was very good! I added all the option­al veg­gies except the cel­ery. Yum. Thank you!

This is the first, and so far only, recipe that I have made from this site. While I found it to be very tasty, it was also VERY salty — and I think I have a fair­ly high tol­er­ance for salt — prob­a­bly giv­en that you are not able to con­trol the salt por­tions since every­thing comes from a processed pack­age.
Def­i­nite­ly stay away from if you are salt sen­si­tive.

How do you mea­sure .6 oz of the Ital­ian sea­son­ing or is that the amount that’s in the pack­et? I haven’t bought it yet. Thanks!

Do you put the Dry mix on before you brown the meat or is it bet­ter to brown the meat and then rub on the Dry mix?

I made this roast tonight and it was soooo yum­my. The only adjust­ment I had to make was on the pep­per­corn pack­et. I couldn’t find it so I sub­sti­tut­ed Mc Cormick’s Mon­tre­al Steak sea­son­ing pack­et. Thank you so much for shar­ing! And I love the app 🙂

I put my roast in the crock­pot this morn­ing. I couldn’t find the pep­per­corn and gar­lic pack­et so I used gar­lic & herb and half a pack of a chipo­tle red pep­per pack­et. I put quite a few veg­eta­bles in there and I put them at the bot­tom based on com­ments above, but the 1 cup of water (I actu­al­ly did 1 1/2) did not cov­er the veg­eta­bles even. The water isn’t even touch­ing the meat…Should I add more?

Would this work with a whole chick­en? If so, how does the cook­ing time change?

This is a fam­i­ly favorite in our house. Instead of the McCormicks Pep­per­corn and Gar­lic sea­son­ing pack­et I use the McCormicks Beef Gravy mix, along with the Ranch and Ital­ian sea­son­ing mix­es. I have left out the veg­eta­bles and when the meat has fin­ished cook­ing I shred it with two forks. Put meat on some nice rolls (like a hard roll). Use the juice to dip sand­wich for a French Dip sand­wich. Excel­lent!

This is an awe­some recipe! I added some gar­lic cloves to make it nice and gar­l­i­cy. 8 1/2 — 9 1/2 hours on low is per­fect. I take out the roast and make gravy with the juices, shred the meat and put this on top of baked pota­toes. Add some steamed veg­gies and you have an incred­i­ble meal. Once you make it, you will make it again and again. So many times crock pot recipes lack fla­vor, but not this one! Thanks!!

I do a sim­i­lar recipe. I use a pack­age of onion soup mix and can of cream of mush­room soup. Great gravy. Will try this soon.
