Chuck Roast

This is sooo good.  My sister-in-law gave me a chuck roast!  =)
  • 3-4 lb chuck roast, mine had the bone in
  • 6-8 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 6 red skinned potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1 very large onion, cut into small chunks
  • 1½ T. steak seasoning
  • 1 T. meat tenderizer
  • 2 t. garlic salt
  • 1 T. parsley flakes
Put about ½ c. water in your crockpot.  Put in all vegetables.  Season meat on both sides, rubbing in the seasoning, meat tenderizer, salt, and garlic powder.  Place in crockpot and sprinkle all with parsley flakes.

Cook on high for 6-7 hours, or on low for 10 hours.  I turned mine on High, and meant to cook it 7 hours.  But I forgot to push the button twice, so it stayed on High for 4, then automatically shut off and went to Warm.  I noticed right before I left, and turned it on Low.  So it was High 4 hours, Warm 2 hours, Low 3 hours.
It worked out better anyway, since I didn't know I'd be going somewhere, and would need it to not be finished yet when I left.  =)
When I found I'd be leaving, and we'd all be gone during the regular meal time, we ate a little something before we left.  So we didn't go hungry because of my oversight!
