Beef Pot Roast

I HATE ROAST. Okay, I USED TO hate roast. A few years 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 GUARANTEED 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 been making this recipe ever since. 

Also, you know how there are always leftovers when you make roast? Well, I am almost tempted to make a roast just to eat this sandwich with the leftovers, Please try it! It's amazing!

As a side note, this time I paired our roast with homemade Sweet Hawaiian Rolls, that post will be next!

Beef Pot Roast

3 pound chuck roast, frozen
1 package dry ranch seasoning
1 package brown gravy mix
1 package italian seasoning
1/2 cup water
Potatoes and carrots, chopped, if desired

Place roast in a slow cooker. Combine all 3 packages of dry seasoning and cover roast with mixture. Pour water over top. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours. This is important! I checked my roast at 7 hours last time and it was still tough. So, I cranked the heat up to high for the remaining 1 hour of cooking time and it was perfect! If using potatoes and carrots, add with 5 hours remaining.

Serves 4-6.
Recipe from Jaime.

Am I reading this right.... Do I put the roast in the crockpot while still frozen?
