Just did one of these with a little beef broth, minced garlic, chopped onion and poured a glass of merlot over the whole thing and let it cook on low for several hours. Near the end, open the lid and cook it on high. You may have to pour off some of the liquid to get the roast to brown and get tender. I served mine to company and got rave reviews!!

Super easy! Good luck!

Another yummy option is to take a roast and add a packet of taco seasoning mix, and a can of rotel (diced tomatoes and green chilis). Cook on high 3-4 hours or Low 8 hours. When it's tender and falls apart easily, shred it (while it's still in the crock) with 2 forks. Stir.

You now have filling for anything Mexican you want to make, like LC Wraps for burritos, or top a salad with it and some mexican garnishments, etc...

This works well with boneless chicken breasts, too!

HTH!

Some stores carry a pot roast seasoning kit. It comes with a bag and instructions. Just add the seasoning and veggies and water and cook away.

With mine, I first add a bit of olive oil to the crock. Then some minced garlic and chopped or sliced onion. Then I season the roast on both sides with salt and cracked black pepper. Sear in a med-hi skillet on all sides quickly to brown a little, then throw it in the crockpot on high a few hours, then low till supper time. This is how I made mine tonight & almost always. Fiance used a new word to describe my food tonight - superb! lol

Here's another option...

1 (4-6 lb.) brisket
Prepared mustard
1 pkg. onion soup mix
Place the brisket, fat side up, in a crock pot. Do not add any water or liquid. Cover with mustard and the onion soup mix. Cook on low overnight or 8-10 hours.

To Die For” Roast
Servings: 4

1 can beef broth
1 package Ranch Salad Dressing Mix (optional)
1 package Italian Salad Dressing Mix
1 package Brown gravy dry seasoning mix
1 beef Roast--about 2 to 3 pounds

If desired, place veggies (onion, potatoes, carrots, etc.) in bottom of the crock pot . Place meat on top of the vegetables. Mix all of the seasoning packets in the cup of broth. Pour the broth over the roast and veggies. Cook on low for 9 - 11 hours, or until done.
Notes: Can be Very Salty----best to use only ˝ of each of the mix packages and save the other half for another roast.

I've made this many times when I was doing WWatchers. Not sure about the carb count. But it is so good!

This is how I always make it (made one a few days ago), minus the coke. Next time I'm trying this recipe and adding the soda. Amber, does it come out sweet tasting?? Ps - I make mashed potatoes for DD to have with it. This makes great gravy!

I spray my crock pot with cooking spray and the clean up is easy. I like to sprinkle the roast with Good Seasons Italian Dressing made with olive oil and a little balsamic vinegar. This week I threw some wedges of cabbage in the bottom of the crock pot and it turned out yummy. I have also poured a cup of red wine over the roast instead of the dressing.

Make the pepperoncini roast recipe. Just take a 15 oz jar of pepperoncini's (including the juice) and dump it in a crockpot with the roast. Cook all day on low and voila, a delicious dinner.

Do you brown the roast before putting in crockpot? What's the tastiest: browning first or not?

Browning the meat first will always give it better flavor but it also means an extra pot and the stove top to clean. Sometimes the extra work and mess aren't worth the bother.

All you really need is meat and seasonings.

I cook mine with a lb. of sliced mushrooms, finely diced onion and garlic, and a spoonful of Better than Bouillion (concentrated beef stock.) For more of an onion soup flavor, add dried minced onion and onion powder. You can add a cup of beef broth if you want, but even if you don't it will make its own gravy. I don't brown pot roast before crocking it. When it comes out, thicken the liquid with not-starch or xanthan gum for a nice gravy.

All you really need when cooking low-carb meat in the crockpot is meat and seasonings of your choice. (Ideally the pot would be at least half full for better heating.)

I make Mexican Shredded Beef similar to Tracelin but I only use meat and taco seasoning mix. It comes out great, with just enough tasty sauce. If the sauce is thin, I thicken it with xanthan gum.

After salting/peppering, I saute in EVOO on both sides until brown. Put in crockpot and add 1 can beef broth and 1 cup red or white wine (Like them both) and an onion for flavor. Cook on low all day long and perfect when I get home!

I brown the roast on all sides in a little evoo and a sprinkle of s&p then put it in the crock pot and add the following to the hot pan. Let it simmer for a bit and it will thicken up a lot then pour it over the roast in the crock pot and cook for 8-10hrs on low. It is so yummy and flavorful.

1/2 teaspoon Black pepper ground
1 Bay leaf whole
1 cup Beef broth
1/2 Red wine
1 packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix (can use LindaSue's sub)
1/2 teaspoon Marjoram fresh if possible
1/2 teaspoon Rosemary fresh if possible
1/2 teaspoon Thyme fresh if possible
3 cloves Garlic minced

BEER & VEGGIES

Whether I am doing soup, stew, pot roast, slow cooker ribs, slow cooker chicken, LITE BEER is my secret, two cans or bottles. I use dried onion, garlic, sage and rosemary. The dried onion and garlic is to avoid carbs.

The pot is loaded with chopped celery, turnips and a couple of carrots -- the finer you chop things at this point, the less you'll have to puree at the end.

Add the roast (I do not brown it when slow cooking). Then fill the crock pot with just enough water to cover everything.

After the roast is fork tender, remove it. Then puree everything in the pot using a immersion blender and use for sauce.

Serving suggestion: A faint sprinkle of apple cider vinegar to brighten the complex flavor and sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

I make chuck roast all the time in the crock pot and they turn out so tender and the flavor OMG!.

I Sprinkle 1/2 a packet lipton onion soup mix on the bottom of the crock-pot,then add the frozen chuck roast. Sprinkle a 1/3-1/2 of a packet of beef stew dry mix (Wal-mart brand) all around the top and sides of roast. Then the other half of the onion soup packet and 1 small can of sliced mushroons, juice and all. 1/2 cup of water, let cook on high 7 hours. Yum.....
