  • 1 Star Ranch Angus® shoulder roast, boneless,

  • 1 packet (0.7 oz) Italian dressing mix
  • 2 large onions, each cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into 1 ½-inch pieces
  • ½ cup ready-to-serve beef broth
  • 2 zucchini, cut into ¼-inch thick slices
  • 2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch dissolved in 2 tablespoons  water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Press dressing mix evenly onto all surfaces of beef pot roast. Place onions and garlic in 4 ½ to 5 ½ quart slow cooker; top with pot roast. Add bell peppers and broth. Cover and cook on HIGH 5 hours or on LOW 8 hours. Add zucchini. Continue cooking, covered, 30 minutes or until pot roast is fork-tender.
