    In the crock pot with cream of mushroom soup mixed with french onion soup (powdered). About an hour before its done, I'll add the veggies.

    ETA - just as shown above! Easy and tastes great!

    Dust lightly w/flour & season with Cavendar's Greek seasoning, brown in a pan & put into the crockpot with veggies (onion, carrots, celery, potatoes). Mix together about a cup of beef broth, worchestershire sauce, dash of hot sauce (I like Trappey's Red Devil), & about a tablespoon of catsup. Pour that into the pan & scrape up any bits of roast left in there, than add that to the crockpot. Cook on low 8-9 hours.

    With Carrots, 'taters, onions, and turnips in covered roasting pain. Brown the roast first on top the stove. Add veggies. Sprinkle all of it with a capfull of Mrs.Dash Original. Roast in the oven at 250* for 4hours. It will fall a part and the gravy is AWESOME!!

    Cast iron dutch oven on top of stove. Salt and pepper roast and brown in olive oil. Put whatever spices you prefer on, 1/2 cup Dr. Pepper for tenderizing, lipton onion soup mix,worchestershire, ketchup, a tad of A-1, 2 cups of water. Cook for about an hour. In a skillet sautee sweet onion in olive oil with garlic until caramelized. add to roast with other diced up veggies ( taters, carrot, celery, etc...) Continue to cook on slow simmer for another hour or so. Uncover and cook down until gravy thickens. You can add a slurry of corn starch to speed this process if in a hurry.

    This is excellent! Enjoy!

    I have a recipe for the microwave (yes: I said MICROWAVE!) that I got years ago from a nurse I worked with.
    Sounds odd, but it works - must be something in the oven bag...

    Anyhow:
    Dust the inside of a large oven bag with flour (or use a package of dry onion soup mix)
    Put roast & vegetables (I like carrots, onions, celery & new potatoes) inside the bag & add 1/2 cup ketchup thinned with 1/2 cup water. You can also use Kitchen Bouquet and/or soy sauce thinned with water.
    Tie bag shut & poke 3 or 4 slits in the bag to let steam escape

    Microwave on High for 30 minutes (I swear it does NOT come out like shoeleather!)
    Test for doneness by poking with a fork through the bag - add time, 5 minutes at a time - until done to your taste

    You can turn the bag over 1/2 way through but some of the juices will run out & you'll have to wash the pan [​IMG]
    OR
    You can just smoosh things around (wearing an oven mitt) inside the bag
