I make this recipe and get rave reviews. Instead of water, I use 1-1/4 cups of beef consomme. I place potatoes, baby carrots, chopped celery, and coursely chopped onion on the bottom of the slow cooker and place the roast on top of the vegetables. Time & money saving tip: After the roast is cooked and it is removed along with a little of the gravy/liquid, I move the leftover gravy and most of the veggies into a pot, add frozen peas and a can of green beans (drained) and cook over medium heat on the stovetop, I thicken it using a little flour and milk mixture and adding it to the pot, stirring until desired thickness is reached. After serving the roast for dinner, I cut up some of the left-over roast and add it to the pot and voila!...I have beef stew for the next night...My kind of recipe!
