I made an offshoot of the 3 envelope roast

Last night was my sons 15th b-day and he was having some friends over for his dinner so, I needed a satisfying filling dinner thus the roast idea.

So, I put on the bottom of my 6 qt oval crock a sliced onion and a few chopped garlic cloves. Put the 3 lbs of roast on top then the 2 packets of beef gravy and ranch dip mix - mixed together - on top. Added in about 2 cups water (we wanted gravy!!) then cooked on low about 8 hours while life went on

About 4 I got home, took out a can of sliced mushrooms, drained them very well, put them in a bowl then put over them about 1/4 cup flour, a good shake of pepper and garlic powder. Let them absorb and get coated with this flour mix then browned them a little in a tablespoon of margarine on the stove-top. After a few minutes I added them into the crock and cooked it all another hour while I made mashed potatoes (almost 10 lbs hahaha) and steamed a huge head of broccoli. OMGosh this was so good and there is nothing left!!!

We also served a homemade cake and store bought ice cream - all went well!!!

Have you done this type of envelope roast? Have you done any "envelope" meal?Is it a family fav or would you not do it again?

Hope to hear from one and all of you on this.....Julie

1 mom liked this

I hadn't either cuz truthfully it never sounded good so I was very surprised that it turned out so well!! the flavor might also have been as good had I used a 4 lb roast.(We might have had some leftovers then hahaha - what am I saying teenage boys means no leftovers) Next I might try the chicken on that includes the italian dressing in it also.
