Marie's Easy Slow Cooker Pot Roast
Good basic dish...just what I was looking for. I used a two pound chuck roast; you will still need to use one cup of water if you want to make gravy (I didn't want gravy). The liquid was very oily but that's to be expected from this cut of meat. I cut two russets in half and placed atop the meat...they came out perfect for us: Not soaked through with 'juices' nor falling apart. Very tender and tastes just as you'd expect: Meat and vegetables :-) I used Wylers Mrs. Grass onion soup mix. To me Lipton is too salty.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast
Excellent! Nicely browned and seared. The doneness for ours was medium rare. The meat doesn't come out of the oven 'hot-hot'...just 'warm.' However that's typical for slowly cooked meats (like prime rib served in restaurants; never really hot) which aren't prepared in a slowcooker or simmered stovetop. Anyway...tender, juicy and I was very, very surprised by this inexpensive cut of meat ($1.88/# on sale) turning into a restaurant quality entree' (seriously)! I used a 2.3# beef round roast sprinkled with coarse salt, coarsely ground black pepper, garlic powder, then placed in cast iron dutch oven (uncovered). Turned-off oven after 20 minutes, and removed pot 2.5 hours later. I'd wanted roast beef for French dip sandwiches, but after seeing/tasting the result---decided a roast beef dinner was more 'fitting' *laff* It was also great not having a pot simmering on the stove, or a pan in the oven, heating-up the kitchen during warm months/season ;^)

Beef Stifado
I saved this recipe last fall (the ingredients were intriguing), but the numerous cooking steps/timing turned-me-off: So, I used a slowcooker. Omitted olive oil, butter, water, chopped onion. I heated all ingredients (used 1.5# stew meat) on stove (to give it a heated head start ) then placed in slowcooker. Wasn't sure if the can of diced tomatoes was supposed to be drained or not, so didn't drain and omitted the 1/2 cup of water. I added boiling onions a top of other ingredients, an hour into cooking, so they wouldn't become mushy. Used pearl onions (as stated in recipe) the second time I made & we liked those better---stronger flavour & sweeter than boiling onions. Cooked on low for 4.5 hours, however it may have been ready in 3.5-4 hours: The meat was extremely break-apart tender. At the beginning of cook time the aroma reminded me of pumpkin pie (no, it doesn't taste a bit like pie)! This dish is very tasty with a nice, mellow combination of spice and orange zest. The sauce is very thin when prepared in a slowcooker, but simple to thicken. Served with sticky rice but egg noodles, or potatoes (mashed or otherwise) would also be a complimentary starch.
