Sunday Pot Roast

    1 (4 -5 lb) beef roast, any kind
    1 (1 1/4 ounce) package brown gravy mix, dry
    1 (1 1/4 ounce) package dried Italian salad dressing mix
    1 (1 1/4 ounce) package ranch dressing mix, dry
    1/2 cup water


    1    Place beef roast in crock pot.
    2.  Mix the dried mixes together in a bowl and sprinkle over the roast.
    3.  Pour the water around the roast.
    4.  Cook on low for 7-9 hours.

Cooks notes.

I am a tweaker.  With the water, we added a little red wine.  We added vegetables - potatoes, a turnip, and carrots and put them in after the the beef had cooked for about two hours.   About 4 hours into the cooking, we added some beef broth.  Oh, and a little more wine.   In retrospect, I don't know that we really needed it.

In the end - magnificent.  It was delicious.  Meat was delectable and the veggies, just right.  Hmmmm....  help yourself.  Please share any tweaking you do.  :)
