Dry Rub Roast.

Ok so this was my first time ever making ROAST... I do not love the traditional use a can of cream of __________ soup, I dont love those so much, i will eat them but never wanted to cook it.   So i GOOGLED easy crock pot roast recipes... I found this one.. (sorry i should have taken more pictures).

I am calling it Dry Rub Roast..

  Get you a good looking roast like this one above. Since i was only cooking for hubby and I i got a 3.5lb Roast.

 You will need:
Crock Pot
3-5lb Roast
1 packet of brown gravy mix
1 packet of Ranch Dressing Mix
1 Packet of Italian Dressing Mix
worcestershire sauce sacue
Carrots, potatoes, & any other veggies you wanna throw in!

Mix all brown gravy, ranch, italian dressing packets together ( i threw in some Paula Deen House seasoning)
I patted down my Roast dry on a pan.  dripped a little worcestershire sauce on in  then rubbed my seasonings on it. Rub all sides!!  Do not use all of it!!  You need some for the water in the crockpot.

 Brown all sides  in a little oil just get get some of the seasonings in and make sure it is all brown!!

Then pour water.. whatever looks good is what i did... your left over seasoning mix ( do not put all again) into your water before putting the roast in and stir then put your roast in and let it cook for about 4 hours. Then i cut up my potatoes and carrots and boiled them in water to get them tender so it would cook faster. The  mix your remaining seasoning in with the veggies and put it all in your crockpot...

The TA DA.... an Awesome rost for supper!!

It tasted awesome and i was so proud ofg myself!!
