You start with a roast. I didn't have one. However I did have two fairly thick cuts of beef in the freezer. We had a quarter cow delivered from a local farmer, and I still don't know what each cut is called. Regardless, they went in the crockpot. I added baby potatoes and carrots.
Now this is the super simple magic part. You take three packets - one reduced salt brown gravy, one ranch dressing and one country herb.
I only had turkey gravy so I used that - which means mine will be very salty. Oh well.
Sprinkle the packets over the roast.
Add about an inch of water. Cook on low for about 6-7 hours.
The roast will be yummy and the gravy is awesome.
Super simple supper!
