Wow! I have never been a pot roast fan but my husband loves it! I created a rub of flour, Montreal seasoning, cracked pepper, kosher salt, paprika, thyme basil etc. let it sit overnight (2-3# chuck roast). Seared/browned it in olive oil the AM. Quartered a sweet onion placed in bottom of crock pot, placed meet on top, put 5-6 peeled carrots, 3 stalks of celery around the roast. Then 3 large baking potatoes peeled and cut crossways around the side. Mixed 1 package of beef onion soup mix and 1 of ranch dressing mix with 1 1/2 Cup beef stock and poured over roast. Cooked on low all day 9-6 then changed to warm. Also basted it with turkey Baster periodically in the PM to keep roast and potatoes moist. Just before serving put 2 T of brown gravy powder and 2/3 c water mixed well into pot gravy to thicken slightly. It was nothing short of fabulous! This is the first review I have ever been inspired to write. A MUST try!!!
