Is it possible to keep the roast whole and not cut it into serving size pieces before cooking?

Does this come out like a pot roast dinner or a stew? I"m thinking there isn't enough liquid for it to be a stew when done cooking, but I want to be sure as I am trying to get a feel for the recipe. :chef2:

That is plenty of fluid for the roast, I usually cook mine dry, and the fluids come from the meat and veggies, so 1/2 cup is lots!

You could keep it whole. I usually toss mine in frozen and cook on high for 6 to 8 hours. More tender when done from frozen...
