1 (3 pound)
beef chuck roast
1 (10.5 ounce) can
1 (1 ounce) packet
dry au jus mix
1 (.7 ounce) package
dry Italian salad dressing mix (such as Good Seasons®)
ground black pepper
I make this all the time. Any cut of beef will work. Also, I just use the Aujus Garvy and Italian Dressing mix, then add water instead of boullion. It is salty enough with just the mixes. The juice is perfect for a French Dip sandwich. This is my go to on busy days. I dont even thaw the meat sometimes, I just throw it in the crock pot frozen...YUMMY...!!!!!!
If the recipe calls for a chuck roast, then show that in the photo. The cut of beef shown is clearly no chuck roast i have ever used.
I also add garlic and Kitchen Bouquet with a mixture of Wondra flour and water for gravy. Superb!
Well, tried to make as written as I am one of the first reviewers...turned out I didn't have an onion (thought I did, so didn't buy one), So I used some onion powder. It smelled great, and tasted pretty good. I think it's worth a try, but I won't make it again, and I don't think the onion thing made that big of a difference.
Wonderful recipe. I added one 10 oz can of low sodium stewed tomatoes and 1/4 cup of banana peppers. Cooked on low for 8 hours.
I rarely use processed/packaged food but I needed something that I could throw into the slow cooker with little preparation so I decided to try this one. I made the recipe exactly as stated and could not be happier. This was absolutely delicious. I can't wait until tonight to use the leftovers for french dip sandwiches. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. We love it and will use it a lot.
I have made this recipe for a few years now. I do not add broth just water (about 4 cups) because there is enough flavor from the au jus packet. I also throw in mushrooms for more deliciousness. Makes a great sandwich on toasted hoagie too.
I have been using this receipt for years. Add potatoes and carrots if you like. Also cook it a little longer and pull it apart with a fork and add bar-b-que sauce. Great for parties.
