Beef Pot Roast

I HATE ROAST. Okay, I USED TO hate roast. A couple of weeks ago my neighbor invited us over for dinner, and told me that she was going to be serving roast. We are pretty good friends, so I told her that I wasn't a big fan of it. She GUARENTEED me that I would like HER roast, so I agreed that we would come over. I am so glad that we did! I am no longer anti-roast! Okay, I am no longer anti-roast if she or I make it. I still am very leary of anyone else's roast. I have never made a roast before and I will tell you, this is fail proof...and delicious!

Beef Pot Roast

3 pound chuck roast, thawed (I used arm roast)
1 package dry ranch seasoning
1 package brown gravy mix
1 package italian seasoning
3/4 cup water (if using a frozen roast, only use 1/2 cup water)

Combine all 3 packages of dry seasoning and cover all sides of roast with mixture. Place in a slow cooker and pour water over the top. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4 hours.

Serves 4-6.
Recipe from Jaime.

That roast looks really good!!

I found your blog through another blog and think your wheat bread recipe looks yummy. I posted a link to it on a post today.

I was wondering if you could tell me how you get your google docs to be viewable by others for your printable recipes. I've fiddled with it a bit and just can't seem to figure it out!
