Best slow cooker pot roast recipe? I have friends to impress!

Ok...this is not my normal way of cooking, but the recipe seems to produce my favorite pot roast. Apologies if you aren't into mixes and packets of seasonings. Here goes:

For a 3-4lb chuck roast: place roast in slow cooker. Mix together 1 packet of Italian salad dressing mix, 1 packet of ranch dressing mix, and 1 packet of brown gravy mix. Sprinkle the dry mixture over the roast. Pour 1/2 cup of water around the roast. Cook on low for about 6-8 hours. I would start checking for doneness at around 5 hours since slow cookers can vary alot and an overdone pot roast is inedible. This makes very good gravy that I like to pour over mashed potatoes or noodles.

This is my own version of red braised pork, adapted specifically for the slow cooker
