Three Envelope Pot Roast {Slow Cooker} - one of THE BEST pot roast recipes on the internet! Everyone loves this pot roast! Roast, salsa, onion soup, italian dressing and au jus mix. Use leftovers to make sliders. We eat this at least once a month!

I am really into my slow cooker right now.  I absolutely love the convenience of it.  There aren’t many things better than walking in the door from work and having dinner waiting on you!  This pot roast recipe was incredibly easy to make, and it tasted delicious!  Chicken Legs said he might like this better than our usual Italian pot roast.  We both loved the flavor from the onion soup mix and the zip from the salsa.

We like to make nachos with our leftover pot roast, but this time we made some pot roast sliders.  We used King’s Hawaiian rolls (we love those rolls) and topped the meat with some swiss cheese.  We popped them in the oven for a few minutes to heat them through and melt the cheese.  Finally, we topped them with a creamy chipotle sauce.  YUM!  I love that we got two different meals with this recipe.  This is going in the dinner rotation.

  1. Okay, second review of my life! This was totally delicious! I thought the ingredients sounded a little bizarre, but it turned out perfectly. Next time (much to my dismay) I will make it with just water instead of salsa, because the husband thought it was too spicy for my one-year-old (who didn't seem to mind, by the way, he ate it up!). Another win! Thanks!

  2. How many does this recipe serve?? Thats the only thing I think your blog is missing, otherwise I LOVE it!! Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I made this tonight with the salsa. We liked the kick that it gave but the gravy was way too salty! Not sure if it was because of the salsa or the mixes.

  4. Im Also in Australia- can you also tell us how much the contents of the envelopes weigh?

    Made your crackbread btw. Im 3 slices away from coronary disease but who cares, its FANTASTIC hahaha

  5. I would love to try this recipe however l am in Australia and we don't get the same sort of packet dips etc as you in America. Could you please explain what the Au Jus is?
    Thankyou Kylie

  6. What an interesting combination of flavors with those packets. I'll have to give it a try. I don't buy those rolls, but know they're soft like the brand I buy. I don't like some of those hard topped slider buns…know what I'm talking about? Everything tends to slide out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway this whole post sounds delicious.
