Here is a perfect idea for an easy and DELICIOUS Sunday dinner! Or a dinner for any night of the week. This Three Packet Roast is simple to prepare and so yummy. As this slowly cooks it creates the most wonderfully tender roast and a divine gravy. It is a family pleaser for sure! 

I can’t get enough of slow cooker meals. I’m so busy with my kids, working, and just the daily grind of life a homemade dinner can sometimes be hard to get on the table. I love it when I have a simple, yet totally yummy recipe that I just throw in the slow cooker and let it do the cooking for me!

For this amazing roast recipe all you need is three packet seasonings. A packet of Brown gravy mix, Italian Seasoning and Ranch dressing mix. I can’t believe that such simple seasonings could create such flavorful meat. I like to serve ours with creamy mashed potatoes and cooked carrots then drench everything in that dreamy gravy. Yum!

  1. I made this roast today! Normally, I am not a huge fan of pot roast. This roast was delicious! I used the low sodium versions of the packs.It was VERY tender, juicy, and flavorful! No extra spices needed! It was a big hit with my husband too, he loved it! Thanks for these easy and tasty recipe! 🙂

  2. Just had this for dinner– YUM! The kids ate it up and asked for more. This could not have been easier to make and tastes so delicious. Thanks so much for the recipe. I love this blog. Cinnamon roll pancakes for breakfast on Saturday is next up. 🙂

  3. I have made this several times & it is always a hit in my house. I have shared the recipe with others & they have loved it as well. Why couldn’t I think of this!!! Thanks! 🙂

  4. I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago and all I can say it WOW! It’s so easy so you wouldn’t think it would taste this good but it’s delicious! My husband went for seconds!

  5. The type of roast definitely makes a difference. I used a fattier roast (my bad for not trimming it) and a thicker roast. Quite soupy. Thankfully I purchased extra gravy packets so I could skim the fat and thicken the gravy. Amazing flavor but I would HIGHLY recommend trimming fat or searing prior to placing in the crockpot. I’ll try this again with a different cut of meat.

  6. I love this recipe, in fact I am going to make this next week end. My Sheltie (SERVICE DOGGIE) EATS HOME COOKED MEALS. Now crappy dog food what they put in that is “SCRAPS” I don’t eat scraps and my baby will not eat it neither. People need to investigate on the computer how dog food id made( hot way and cold way) neither is good for my baby. <3 (love) my baby.
