One of the easiest go to meals for a nice family dinner is a nice roast of beef. Once again the crock pot is a fantastic tool to use with its put a lid on it and forget about it use. One of the go to items that will help flavor your roast and it helps make a nice gravy is onion soup mix. It doesn’t have to be the big name one either. Supermarket brands work just as well. You can also add some diced potatoes, carrots and a can of diced tomatoes to the roast to complete the meal. Add the potatoes and carrots about an hour before the roast is done so they do not overcook.
