Believe it or not, the best cuts of meats for the crock are the cheapest! The more expensive cuts tend to overcook and lose their textures, but the least expensive (aka tougher) become more tender and flavorful. Yet another reason to love the crock!
Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire!
2 lb boneless beef chuck shoulder roast 1 (40 oz can) sweet potatoes, drained 2 small onions, sliced 2 apples, cored, sliced 1/2 cup beef broth 2 minced garlic cloves 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. dried thyme 3/4 tsp. black pepper, divided 1 tbsp. cornstarch 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 2 tbsp. cold water
Trim fat from beef and cut into 2-inch pieces. Place beef, sweet potatoes, onions, apples, beef broth, garlic, salt, 1/2 tsp. thyme, 1/2 tsp. pepper in slow cooker. Cover, cook on low for 8-9 hrs. Transfer beef, sweet potatoes, and apples to platter, keep warm. Let liquid stand 5 minutes. Skim off fat.
In small bowl, combine cornstarch, remaining 1/2 tsp. thyme, 1/4 tsp. pepper, cinnamon, and water, stir into liquid in slow cooker.
Cook 15 minutes or until thickened. Serve sauce with beef, potatoes, and apples.
A very warming, fulfilling dish.

Let me start by saying I can cook! Now you may not believe me after you read my question...
I'd like to make a pot roast in the crockpot, but don't know what cut of beef to get! (Yes, I feel really dumb) Even looked at the store yesterday and there's round, top round, rump roast, etc. I kept looking for a tag that says "good for crockpot". Couldn't find any!
Guess I could "Google" it, but figured it would be better to get real human advice, and *maybe* someone would reply with a tried and true recipe. (hint hint, LOL)
Can't wait to hear from you!
