When preparing this crock pot meal turn the heat up to high for the first hour then turn it down to regular or low for the rest of the cooking time. Be sure to cover the crock-pot so you wonít lose liquid and so youíll keep all the flavor in the pot.
When serving your meal, butter a slice of French bread and place it on the serving Plate. Ladle some of the broth from the crock-pot over the slice of bread. Place the serving of meat on top of the bread slice.
Surround the meat with a variety of the vegetables. This will make a nice presentation and the juices in the bread will keep the meat moist so that it will taste like a nice piece of prime rib.
Deer hunters in the area could use this same recipe, but place a venison roast in the crock-pot instead of a piece of beef. It will be a meal to remember.
