Guest Post: An Easy, Delicious Recipe

My sister, Jackie, is offering one of her go-to recipes for teachers who do not have a lot of time. But, let’s get real, who does? Enjoy!


As a special education teacher, who runs around all day, I am always looking for recipes that make my life easier. During the winter months, my go-to appliance in the kitchen is my crock pot. Since I live alone, I despise cooking for myself. Recently, I had a few guests to help me eat my meal (you will get a preview below).

The night before I cook I go to Publix to get any meat I may need and additional ingredients. I then brown all the sides in the skillet and place it in the crockpot to leave in the refrigerator overnight. After getting ready for school the next morning, I get my crockpot out, plug it up, turn it on low, and pour the ranch dip, Au Jus Gravy mix, and butter on top of the roast. I start it at 7:00 AM and the recipe calls for 8 hours on low. When I get home from school around 3:30, my roast looks perfect and ready to eat. Since I do not eat until later, I turn my crockpot on warm to keep it hot until it is time to dig in!
