When beef roasts go on sale I always make sure to pick one up to make this delicious roast. It’s incredibly simple, allergy friendly, and sure to please your family.

This recipe takes a little bit of forethought as it takes a few hours to roast, but it’s worth it. As it cooks, it makes a lovely gravy that you can pour on some mashed potatoes when you serve up dinner.


Saucy Roast Beef

Yield – 8 servings

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Cooking Time – 4 hours


  • 4lb beef roast, whatever cut is on sale is fine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 water
  • 1 packet Zatarain’s Cajun Brown Gravy Mix (or sub a homemade gravy mix)
  • 1 packet Italian Dressing Mix (or sub a homemade mix)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons parsley


  • Preheat your oven to 325F.
  • In a dutch oven, heat up the olive oil over medium high heat.
  • Sear the roast on all sides until browned.
  • Fill a measuring cup with the water and then add in all of the packets and spices. Mix it well.
  • Pour water mixture over the top of the roast.
  • Pop the roast in the oven for 4-6 hours. You’ll know it’s done when it simply falls apart at the touch of a fork. If it hasn’t made it to that point, roast it a little longer and check again.

You could also, if you need to, put all of the ingredients in a crock pot in the morning and let it cook all day on low. Pop some potatoes in there as well and you’ll have most of a dinner when you get home from work.
