Two Packet Beef Roast from the Slow Cooker

Saturday, June 1, 2013

Day 2 is complete with the infamous headache, but nothing that a little Tylenol couldn't fix. I actually felt pretty good today minus the headache of course. I wasn't suffering from any hunger pains that I sometimes endured during times of re-starting the Medifast plan. Thank goodness! I did experience a little tiredness but I am not sure if it is because of the restart or because I just found out my thyroid levels or a tad bit higher than what they should be. Hopefully the trip to the doctors next week for increased dose in meds will alleviate that problem. I am still feeling positive about this time around and I am so happy I have you guys to share this experience with. Thanks so much for all your support through comments on my blog, emails or through my Sandy's Kitchen Medifast page. They truly mean so much to me and they are greatly appreciated!

This weekend has been very hectic for me and I needed an easy recipe that I could throw together into the slow cooker. This one is perfect! I mean... come on... 3 ingredients! It doesn't get any easier than that! Two seasoning packets of brown gravy mix and Italian salad dressing mix combined with a bit of water makes a flavorful gravy for this roast. If you notice in the photo, I didn't add any gravy to the beef because I was making the roast into a salad. It is delicious that way too! What is best about this dish is that it is very family friendly. Serve it with some mashed cauliflower. I promise you won't even miss the potatoes! Enjoy!


Two Packet Beef Roast from the Slow Cooker

Ingredients:
3 lbs beef round eye (7 Leans)
1 packet Medifast gravy mix (12 Condiments)
1 packet Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing Mix (8 Condiments)
1 cup water

Directions:
Trill all fat from roast. Place roast in slow cooker. Combine two seasoning packets with water and stir until combined. Pour over roast in slow cooker. I usually flip the meat halfway through (about 4 hours), but this is optional. Cook on LOW for about 8 hours or until meat is cooked. Enjoy!

7 servings with 1 Lean, 2.8 Condiments and No Healthy Fats Required
