So if I wanted to make a roast in a crock pot with out the cheese and other frills, how do I do it? I want a roast with potatoes, carrots, and onions, or other veggies. Just throw it all in and let it cook all day? Any special herbs or spices? Thanks in advance.

I usually have my crockpot turned on high and sprayed with Pam to make for easier clean up later. I sear the meat on both sides, sprinkling with a seasoning salt I made using some onions and garlic and celery that I dehydrated and then whizzed up in my blender with a bit of pepper and organic sea salt. I transfer the meat to the crockpot and cover with a soup of some type......mushroom, chicken or celery cream soup that I mix with a package of something like Lipton onion soup. Turn your pot to med or low, depending on how long you have to cook it and how large the roast is. A couple hours before you intend to eat, add your carrots and potatoes......again, time needed to cook them depends on how small you cut them. That is also a good time to check your seasoning, generally adding a bit more salt. The veggies will add more liquid (depending on how high the temp is you are cooking it at) which can be used for gravy. Beef broth can be added at any time if it appears to be drying out. You may also consider turning the roast after a couple hours.

Just made one yesterday, browned the meat, put onions and garlic in bottom of cp, added meat. sprinkled a package of pot roast seasoning (use any of your favorite seasoning (lowreys salt, bay leaf etc) Piled on the celery, carrots and potatoes. added 1/2 carton of beef broth. set on high. I cover the top of the crock pot with a small towel to keep the heat in but do not recommend it unless you are right there as it will get hot. let it cook 6 hours and the meat just fell apart. can check meat sooner to see it it is done. Hubby loved it, glad there was left overs.
