Italian Pot Roast

August 10, 2020Teresa

We loved Italian Pot Roast! This easy slow cooker recipe uses only 7 ingredients, yet it is superb to the taste buds. One of the reasons it’s so easy, is you start with a brown gravy mix combined with Good Seasons Italian salad dressing mix. That’s combined with water and poured over the roast in the crockpot. Then it’s topped with red and green peppers and onions. It’s slow cooked on low temperature for 7-8 hours. Soooo good.

Back in May when we couldn’t go out to eat, I made a LOT of family dinners. I served this roast with Alfredo Potatoes and Garlic Green Beans. All were new recipes and all turned out fantastic. I made a gravy from the residual juices from the roast and it was terrific served over the meat and the potatoes.

This down home country-style meal can’t be beat. It was a total and complete comfort food meal from top to bottom. Our neighbor across the street also got a sample of this delicious meal. His wife had to travel to Oklahoma for a few weeks so I dropped off a few meals to him while she was gone. He asked me if I was trying to “fatten him up.” 🙂

This is a stick-to-the-rib meal, that’s for sure. It’s a delicious take on pot roast and really quite easy to make. It took me less than five minutes of prep time to get everything in the crockpot. Then another five minutes to make the gravy when everything was done. The meat was juicy, so tender and very mouthwatering.

If you’re tired of serving pot roast the same old way, make up this Italian Pot Roast soon. It is so sumptuous even your kids will ask for it over and over again. No kidding.
