Slow Cooker Pot Roast

We recently had neighbors caring for a very ill family member and I thought taking them food during their difficult time might provide them with, I hoped, some comfort.  I turned to my freezer, grabbed my slow cooker and the following ingredients and 6-7 hours later, they had a hot meal at their door.  It made enough for several meals that I put in containers so they could refrigerate or freeze for a later date.  
It is my modified recipe for Italian Beef that I have turned into a Beef Roast Dinner.  I always keep mild giardiniera peppers and Louie's Italian Beef seasoning mixes in my pantry .  For this recipe I used a 5 pound beef roast.
Place the roast in the bottom of the large slow cooker, cover with half a jar of Giardiniera peppers (optional), a package of Good Seasons Italian Salad dressing mix (dry), half package of Lipton Onion Soup Mix (dry),  mix the contents of Louie's Italian Beef Seasoning with 1-1/2 cups water in a bowl and pour over beef roast, place peeled carrots, and chopped onion in slow cooker, cover and cook for 6-7 hours on medium.  You can shred the beef and serve on crusty rolls or serve as a roast and slice the beef, serving with the delicious au jus in the slow cooker.  Mashed potatoes are always a favorite with roast beef.  Enjoy and Happy Tuesday!
