Loved this recipe, and have made it at least 12 times so far, and after trying to make it better i've done good things and not so good things. First, heavily season the meat before the sear, try using larger chunks of salt if you can. 2nd, Use peanut oil instead of vegetable oil, gives you a better sear, and tastes better in the final product. 3rd, add additional salt, you can try different things, i add about a tablespoon of soy sauce, but its up to you. Do not add more than 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, this will make the roast taste sweet, and the meat will flop apart. make sure the meat stays in the slow cooker for the full time frame, even if you do get a boneless chuck roast, and always de-fat the roast before serving. This last thing is just something i've noticed, try to use a smaller pan for the sear, I use a 10", helps hold in the moisture as the heat drops less when the meat is added (you'll notice less bleeding in the pan).
