Slow Cooker Pot Roast

IMG_7334-0.JPG
I got this easy Pot Roast Recipe from my coworker (Dave). It turned out delicious but I wish I didn’t use an Eye of Round, although it’s all I had at the time. A Chuck of Beef would’ve been a lot more flavorful and juicy then the Eye of Round I used. This is definitely a recipe worth trying, especially due to it’s simplicity and savory flavors, just be sure to use a Chuck…

Cook Time: 6 hours on high or 8 hours on low

INGREDIENTS

1 (¾ oz.) packet Hidden Valley®Farmhouse Originals Homestyle Italian Dressing & Seasoning Mix (I used Kroger brand)
1 (½ oz.) packet Hidden Valley® The Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix

5 pounds boneless chuck roast
2 pounds new potatoes cut to bite size

Roast should have an internal temperature of 145ºF.
Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve.
Tip: For a thicker sauce, remove roast and potatoes and transfer to a platter. Pour the cooking juices into a sauce pan. Stir together 3 tablespoon cornstarch and 3 tablespoon cold water. Bring sauce to a boil and whisk cornstarch mixture into boiling sauce. Spoon sauce over meat and potatoes. Enjoy…!
