Whick ever recipe you decide to do remember to rub the roast with any seasonings you use.

I sprinkle it liberally with Montreal Steak Seasoning. I pour two jars of beef gravy over it with a little worcestershire sauce in it.

It depends on what we want and what we will be eating with it:
- envelope of onion soup with a can of either cream of mushroom or celery soup.
- can of cranberries with a can of V8 (Never any leftovers!)
- fresh garlic & parsley with a can of beef broth

I like adding a capful of Kitchen Bouquet (you can find it with the herbs and spices).

Another one I like is vegan worchestershire sauce (though you could use non-vegan).

Roast has a strong flavor so robust herbs go well with it ... a couple sprigs of rosemary would be good, for instance. I like to rub the leaves to release the oils (flavor) before adding the sprigs to things.

It's very woody, so add the whole stick, not just the leaves, and don't eat it. (You can, but it's not really great ... fresh rosemary is soft and tender, that's different, I'll eat those leaves.)

I use put onion soup mix on my roast and add can of cream of mushroom soup to the crockpot. They really make a wonderful gravy.

Garlic and bay leaves. They add a really nice flavor.

If you want to make a killer roast, add the salt and pepper as usual. But, take a sharp knife and cut into the meat, making small slashes about 2 inches apart, about an inch or two deep. Now insert fresh little slivers of garlic into the small gashes. In the "olden days" we rolled the meat in flour and then seared it in animal grease. Today I omit the flour and the animal grease. Sear this in a skillet on top of the stove. This will keep the garlic from coming out and searing meat (browning it) in the skillet may also keep the juices in. Then put in the over per usual.

Try this.......

3-4 lb of beef roast
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt, pepper, italian seasonings like basil, oregano and parsley **1/4 teaspoon of each**
1 large yellow onion, chopped or sliced
4 cloves of garlic, peeled
1/2 cup of red wine
Carrots, potatoes and celery.

Mix red wine with seasonings,olive oil and garlic.
Place roast at bottom of crock pot, surround it with the onion, carrots, potatoes and celery.
Pour red wine mixture on top.
Cook low 6 hours.
Delish !

I usually get the bag and season pre-mixed spices but I would like to use my own spices so I can control the sodium.

Any suggestions on what to use?
