Directions

  1. Spray the inside of a slow cooker with cooking spray. Spread the onion slices out into the bottom of the cooker.
  2. Spread the flour out onto a work surface. Sprinkle the chuck roast with salt and black pepper, and roll the roast in the flour to coat all sides. Using the edge of a small, sturdy plate, pound the flour into the meat. Place the floured roast into the cooker on top of the onions. Whisk together beef gravy mix, ranch dressing mix, and Italian dressing mix in a bowl, and whisk the mixes with water until smooth. Pour over the chuck roast. Distribute carrots around the meat.
  3. Cover the cooker, set to Low, and cook until the roast is tender and the gravy has thickened, about 8 hours.

Am I the only person who thought this was unbearably salty? I wanted to love this, it was so simple and seemed like a great idea. The meat was great, but the veggies and especially the gravy w...

Great recipe and the meat was so tender that it practically melts in your mouth! The first time I cooked it according to directions, the meat was too salty. So I made it again and made the fol...
