I do the same thing . I do add my veggies about halfway into cooking though if I am cooking for a long period of time. Can't stand mushy potatoes.

I'm embarrassed to say I ate almost half of it.

Today I made pot roast sangwiches with no-knead bread. Yum.

Glad it all worked out your roast pic had me wishing for taste a vision..Looked delish :)

I'm curious though where you able to leave that lid on? Not lift to check on it. I love cooking things in the crock pot.I've got 4,use them often.
If you get the chance try making chicken,or your own refried beans in it..Good stuff :)

Yes, I put the lid on and just let it cook for 8 hours. I bought 4 of the chuck roasts because they were on sale for $1.57 a pound so I'm gathering up more crock pot recipes to use for the other three.

Sedagive - If you still have one left, you might want to consider cooking it on the grill. If it's not finished cooking to your preference (mine is medium rare), you can quickly finish it in the oven.

Chuck roasts are highly underrated for flavor. Maybe it has a lot of fat? But you don't have to eat it if you don't want to. I'm certain you can find a deserving pet in the neighborhood that would love it. Often I'll cut the fat into little pieces, and add a Tb or so a bowl over a period of time. My dog's coat appreciates it as I am stingy, and feed him a healthy dry food only for the regular daily meals. I lied. sometimes I'll add a Tb of bacon fat before putting the rest in the refrigerator jar for cooking eggs, etc.
