Ok so this is my all time FAVORITE meal, it is so easy and PERFECT for Sunday dinner. I just throw it all into the crock pot before church, set it on high and let it cook for the 4 hours we're at church... Mike is the choir directer so we get to be there for an EXTRA hour! :) Then when I get home, make some rolls and let it cook for another 30 minutes to an hour on low. Then eat and eat until you can't eat anymore!
EDIT: It is even better if you let it cook on low for 8 hours. It is so tender! I have also tried using sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes and it was really yummy!
Oil (for browning)
salt and pepper
Pour a tablespoon or so of oil into a skillet, sprinkle some of the onion powder, garlic salt(just a little), salt, and pepper into the oil, brown all sides of the meat. Put into the crock pot. Peel carrots, wash potatoes and cut in half if large, or if they are small you can keep them whole. Put water half way up the meat sprinkle more salt and pepper and a little more onion powder. cook for 4-5 hours on high! mmmmm seriously SO good!
For Gravy, get all of the meat, carrots, and potatoes out of the crock pot then strain the drippings into a sauce pan. Add some beef broth or bouillon if it needs more flavor. Mix 2 TBS of corn starch with some water... just enough that you can mix it around and it isn't too thick. Bring the drippings to a boil and whisk in the corn starch, let it boil for about a minute until it is thick.
