Happy Holidays!!! Sunday is not usually the day for new recipe release on Gourmet Persuasian. But today is a special Sunday as it’s the weekend right before Christmas. Therefore, I have decided to present a killer main dish recipe to you as a special arrangement on the site for the holiday.

Killer Crock Pot Beef Roast

You might have noticed that I have been kind of obsessed with crock pot goodies recently. Here’s why –

  • Cooking preparation is minimum to none.
  • All of sudden, your cooking skills get improved significantly because you are able to handle a whole animal without a blink.

  • Hands off cooking is awesome! Cook when you are asleep or at work.
  • You realize that you are hanging out with your family and friends in the living room without worrying about the most important dish for dinner.
  • The result? Absolutely fantastic!

If you like veggies to pair with your meat like I always do, spend an additional 5 minutes to do the chopping and you are all set.

Killer Crock Pot Beef Roast


This Killer Crock Pot Beef Roast is a killer. It combines pork-tender beef, meaty vegetables and can’t-stop-drinking juice in one dish. Simply to die for!


Units Scale
  • 1 (1.2 oz) brown gravy mix, dry
  • 1 (1 oz) ranch dressing, dry
  • 1 (1.3 oz) dried Italian salad dressing mix
  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 3 lbs beef roast, any kind
  • 12 crimini mushrooms
  • 1 white zucchini, cubed
  • 2 large potatoes, cubed
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cups chopped carrots or mini carrots
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup water


  1. In a medium bowl, mix gravy mix, ranch dressing, Italian salad dressing, and pepper together.
  2. Cut beef into a few big chunks and coat with the seasoning mixture. (One whole big chuck of beef works just fine if it fits in your crock pot.)
  3. Place half of the prepared veggies at the bottom of your crock pot. Lay beef on top of the veggies. Next, sprinkle the rest of the mixture over the beef.
  4. Add the other half of the veggies around or on top of the beef.
  5. Pour water over the ingredients and throw bay leaf in the pot.
  6. Cook on low for 9 hours.


This recipe brings a good amount of can’t-stop-drinking soup. If you would like to reduce the liquid, simply add 1/2 cup water instead of 1 cup before cooking. However, it might increase the saltiness.
