I love my crock pot! This is so easy and fast to make.
You will need:
1 (3-4 pound) rump or chuck roast
1 Tbsp butter or oil
about 4-5 medium potatoes
1 medium onion (halved)
2 cups water or beef broth
*season meat with pepper and salt
*brown it in pan
*add water to it, then transfer to crock pot (makes sauce darker)
*add potatoes and onions (carrots too if you prefer)
*cook on low for 10- 12 hours
I like my carrots steamed, which takes about 45 min.
