I made this recipe up after checking out a few others and it turned out so very tasty!
1 3-4 lb boneless roast
1 cup beef broth (I didn't measure this either but had at least 1/2 a can)
1/4 to 1/3 cup red wine (I didn't measure)
salt and pepper
1pkg ranch dip or dressing mix
1 pkg brown gravy mix
2 tbs oil
Lightly flour and salt and pepper the roast. Heat oil in a skillet on medium high heat and brown both sides of roast. Transfer to crock pot. Slowly add beef broth and wine to skillet and deglaze removing all the stuck on brown bits. Add both flavor packages to liquid mix and stir until combined. Pour over roast. Rough chop onion and and add to crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hours and enjoy. I cooked the onions all day, but if you add carrots and potatoes it would be so good with the beef broth flavors but I wouldn't add until the last 2 hours. My mouth waters just thinking about it!
