I have not GFG but I would! Looks like a fool proof way to dinner:) Try it and see. Let us know.

I have not done a dry roast in the crock pot, but I have done one in the oven. Agree with the article that you don't really need to add liquid unless you are cooking veggies, and agree that you need to brown.

I cooked roast that way when I first started using a slow cooker. Then I started adding the vegetables, etc., to have the full meal. Then stopped browning because time was short. The only time I add water is if I use the onion soup mix; I usually reconstitute it in 1/4-1/2 cup water prior to adding it to the meat.

I've never tried it completely dry, I do add a bit of water in the bottom. I stopped browning the meat many years ago, found it an unnecessary step. I also don't trim the fat off until cooked or last couple hours of cooking, I feel it makes the meat juicier and more flavorful. If you do try it totally dry, let us know how it turned out.
