    put some garlic in the roast. I use 2 packages of Lipton onion soup with 2/3 water and 1/3 red wine. Potatoes, carrots, and a little celery

    I was thinking about leaving onions out cause my girlfriend hates onions, but maybe those little pearl onions could work. Anyone ever used those?

    Also what cut of meat do you usually use?

    I just bought

    a 3lb chuck roast
    a bag of white pearl onions
    a bag of baby carrots
    a bag of baby red potatos
    mccormick pot roast season
    gravy packet
    red wine

    i also have packets of ranch season which this recipe recommends

    http://www.food.com/recipe/to-die-fo...ot-roast-27208

    So of all the info ive gathered im gonna try this process, lemme know if im missing something.

    1. Season the meat with pot roast seasoning and perhaps ranch season, cut slits in meat and place garlic cloves in meat
    2. brown the meat on all sides (based on Stickys recipe http://www.letsgokings.com/bbs/showp...29&postcount=9 and others ive seen)
    3. Cut up all veggies and place in bottom of crock pot
    4. Place roast over veggies
    5. Pour in 1/2 cup water, gravy mix & 1 cup red wine (or would you use 1 cup water, 1/2 cup wine?)
    6. Cook on low for 8 hours

    Ive also seen recipes use cream of mushroom soup, anyone ever use it?

    Feel free to add to the recipe or tell me if im doing anything wrong.

    makes sense, most of the recipes ive seen don't brown the meat first and just throw everything in the crock pot.

    Dry Rub it and sear all sides in a pan. Put it in the crock and add a can of French Onion Soup and some Red Wine.

    Montreal Steak, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Pepper, Kosher Sale...maybe even a touch of brown sugar and a bit of cumin. Basically any rub you would use on a steak.

    If you havent been to it already there is a Penzeys Spice store in Torrance...they have about 4 or 5 different rubs that would work for this.

    Here is a chart that will help you....

    For me I make a pre-rub of cayenne pepper, crushed red peppers, paprika, salt, white pepper, garlic powder. As a secret ingredient---get ready>>> fresh coffee grinds! Yea just a pinch. Works great and gives a nice color.

    Or you can just cheat and get one of the many great rubs out there. I prefer Ford's Bone Suckin Sauce dry rub (their wet sauces are awesome too). I could that on most anything and it'd taste better.

    Browning the meat first is key, adds that extra little bit of flavor.
