"I've been making this roast for years and it's perfect for a Sunday meal and for those busy weeknights. It is comfort food at its best and is REALLY GOOD and I have turned more people to this recipe than I can count! It is not an original creation of mine, but I was surprised that it wasn't on this site seeing that it is on other sites. I'm placing it here to "spread-the-word" for this most successful dish."

This is tender and tasty and so easy to make! It was a breeze to toss into the crock pot this morning. I added some baby carrots and they were delicious, too.

The packet of dry seasonings went a long way to making this dish as good as it is. Thanks for posting

In the end it was tasty but I added the veggies at 5 hours and at 7 they were still rock hard. Roasted in oven for an hour and instant potted the meat for 20 minutes. Must be my crockpot. Used onion soup mix instead of ranch.

It's so easy to prepare, yet it produces such a wonderful full meal of slices of tender pot roast, cooked vegetables and a fabulously delicious gravy that really makes this dish so special. We spoon the pan gravy over the potatoes and beef slices, and it made every bite like it was a moment in heaven. Thanks for sharing your recipe, ForeverMama.

Well all the reviews are right. Delicious gravy and roast. Easy to make and wonderful to come home to. I added carrots so we would have all dinner dishes covered. Family loved this and we have some great leftovers for the next couple of days. Next time I would try red wine instead of water to see how that turns out.

This is the only pot roast I make anymore. Just absolutely delish! I have served it with Kluski noodles for a change of pace, but I usually make it with potatoes, carrots, and onions. I put the potatoes (red or gold) underneath the roast before putting it into the crock pot. Also, I usually sear the roast on the stovetop first to add that nice browned taste to the roast. Also, I add a bit more salt when thickening the gravy, and a little Kitchen Bouquet or Gravy Master. And one more note: Thicken your gravies with cornstarch mixed in water, rather than flour. So much better.
