pot roast (mine was a chuck roast about 2.5 pounds)
1 packet brown gravy mix
1 packet Italian dressing mix (I recommend Good Seasons brand zesty Italian mix)
1 packet ranch dressing mix
1 cup water
Season the roast with salt and pepper and dredge in flour. In a large skillet sear the roast on all sides. Mix together all the seasonings and the water. Pour half into the bottom of the crock pot. Add the roast and pour the rest of the seasoning mixture on top. It may not look like you have enough liquid, but I promise it is, there will be tons and tons of juice. Cook roast on low for 8-10 hours. Once finished let the roast rest 10-15 minutes before cutting.
