Store-Bought Gravy Mix Is The Simple Way To Elevate Pot Roast
Most pot roast recipes call for a cup of water so the beef doesn’t dry out. To further elevate the flavors, consider adding a packet of gravy mix to that water.
This technique will turn the water into gravy to spoon onto the sliced pot roast and vegetables — without having to make it from scratch in a separate pan.
Beyond providing an effortless way to add gravy to your meal, this method will add flavor to the pot roast itself, so you can keep the other seasonings simple.
Whisk the instant gravy packet before adding it to the slow cooker with your other ingredients. This ensures the powder fully dissolves and prevents it from clumping.
