Directions:
Sear the roast. Place in crock pot with onion. Pour water over top. Sprinkle the mixes on top. Cook on low about until about halfway done. Stir. Cut up the potatoes and carrots, and add. Continue cooking until meat is cooked through.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I love onions, and so I use 3-4 onions every time. You can get the flavor with just one, but if you like to eat the onions too, you can use more. I usually skip the searing step, and put a frozen roast right into the crock pot in the morning. Then I cook it on low until dinner time. Cooking it on low will make the meat more tender, but if you only have half the day, you can cook it at a higher temperature. Just put the carrots and potatoes in at the same time as the meat.
