I love using my crock pot.
I usually cook in it at least once a week.
I love that I can make dinner in the morning, and then forget about it all day.
This is my mother's recipe that I still make today.
What you will need:
onion soup mix
I cut all of my vegetables up, (but not too small), and layer them with the potatoes on bottom, the onions next, celery and carrots thrown in on top.
Sometimes I add mushrooms too.
Then I take the onion soup mix and sprinkle just a little (about a quarter of the bag) of the seasoning on top of the vegetables.
Next I layer the meat on top and sprinkle the rest of the seasoning on top of the meat.
Finally, I add about 1/4 cup of water. No need for more water than that-the water in the veggies will keep the meat moist too.
Put a lid on it, and forget about it for at least 8 hours.
