    I do the good old pot roast in a crockpot. I brown it, add some water, lipton soup mix, and veggies. I sometimes will add a cream of mushroom soup instead. Just depends on my mood.

    I'll be using my crockpot more and more so will try some new things and post to your crockpot threads.

    I'm always looking for tried and true recipes and think the crockpot tried and true recipes are a great idea.

    I made this for supper last night and it was GREAT!

    Old Fashioned Beef Stew

    2 pounds cubed beef stew meat
    4 cups boiling water
    1 Tbsp lemon juice
    1 tsp worchestershire sauce
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1 onion, diced
    1 bay leaf
    1 Tbsp salt
    1 tsp sugar
    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp paprika
    1/8 tsp ground allspice
    6 potatoes, cubed
    2 carrots, sliced
    1/2 cup whole kernel corn

    1 In slow cooker, combine the stew meat, boiling water, lemon juice, worchestershire sauce and garlic. Stir in the onion, bay leaf, salt, sugar, ground peper, paprika and allspice. Add the potatoes, carots and corn.

    2 Cook on high for 2 hours.

    3 Swith the slow cooker to low and cook for another 3 1/2 hours. Remove bay leaf before serving.

    To thicken stew for a gravy base, mix 1 heaping Tbsp of cornstarch with 1/3 cup cold water and mix in for the last 1/2 hour of cooking time.

    Being me, though, I couldn't follow the recipe exactly. I only used 1 pound of meat. I added 2 beef boullion cubes. I substituted 1/4 tsp red pepper for the paprika and black pepper (cause I don't have any paprika). I left out the corn and added celery. I use the garlic that comes in a jar, because it lasts forever in the fridge. I cooked it on low all day.

    Throw all in a crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours or until done!

    I'm trying the lipton soup roast recipe.

    I put carrots and chunked potatoes in the bottom of my crockpot. I placed a 5 1/2 lb. frozen roast on top of them. I put a pkg. of lipton onion soup mix on top and added 1 cup of water.

    We don't usually eat till around 7:00 pm so I guess I'll cook it for about 3 hours on high and then turn it down to low till dinner time.

    Did I add enough water? How will I know? I guess I'll know if it burns, lol.

    Anyway, I'll let you all know how it turns out.

    edited to add that I put the roast in at 11:00 am.
