Old Farmhouse Roast Beef in the Crockpot

1 Beef Roast
1 pkg. Brown Gravy Mix
1 pkg. Italian Salad Dressing Mix
1 pkg. Ranch Dip Mix

Combine mixes in a bowl for good distribution of  flavors.

When purchasing a roast, allow 1/2 pound per person.
Look for good marbling, as it adds flavor, tenderness and juiciness.
The Bread and Butter Roast is one of my favorites.

Press seasoning onto both sides of the roast 
and place in crockpot.

Cook on low for 8 hours.
Add liquid if needed.

Allow to stand for 20 minutes before carving.
Serve with the Au Jus.

Grilled Chicken Breast with Old Farmhouse Spicy Rub

Old Farmhouse Spicy Rub
1 tsp. coriander, crushed
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

I used the back of a spoon to crack and crush the coriander.

Add the rest of the spices and mix.
This was enough rub for two chicken breasts.

Preheat grill to medium high heat.
Coat both sides of chicken breast with spicy rub.

Place chicken breasts on grill.
Cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side,
depending on the size and thickness.
Check to see that no pink remains.
