3 Packet Pot Roast

I have seen this recipe floating around on Pinterest for the past few months.  A few weeks back Smiths was having a good sale on roast so I bought a few and froze them.  The night before I got a roast of the freezer to let thaw.  In the morning I mixed all the packets together and poured it over the roast turned on the crock pot and went on with my day.  When I got home that night and opened the door the aroma of dinner smelled AMAZING!
The flavors of the trio were amazing!
I was a little leery at first but dinner was a huge success and I think I will start making this recipe more often!

3 Packet Pot Roast

1 pot roast
1 packet ranch dressing mix
1 packet brown gravy mix
1 packet italian dressing mix
1 1/2 cups water

Mix all 3 mixes together with water.  Pour over pot roast.  Turn crockpot on to high and cook for 5-6 hours or on low for about 8-9 hours.
If you want to make gravy with the juice of the meat.  It is awesome flavor and is great to have with some mash potatoes.  I added the juice into a saucepan and let it come to a boil.  In a small cup I added 1/2 cup water and about 1-2 Tbsp of corn starch and mixed.  Then it starts to boil slowly stir in the water with corn starch and until desired thickness.

My notes:
I did add about half an onion.  I thought I was kind of salty so next time I might try to find to see if any of the packets come in reduced sodium.
