slow-cooker pot roast

we just finished a wonderful pot roast- it was juicy, succulent, and savory!
I've done this recipe before but using the oven instead of the slow-cooker and let me tell you- what a difference!!!!

ok now down to the good stuff:

1T cornstarch
8 med carrots cut into thirds
2 med onions cut into wedges
salt and pepper
1 beef chuck roast 3 lbs (we actually used a cross rib roast tonight)
2T Worcestershire sauce

in a little bowl add cornstarch and 2 T of cold water. mix until "dissolved." toss the veggies with the cornstarch mixture in the slow-cooker. Salt and pepper and sear both sides of the roast. place the roast on top of the veggies and sprinkle W. sauce on top. cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours.

once done, turn off the heat and let rest for about 15 minutes. serve with juices!

yeah way easy, but still delicious! I hope you all enjoy!
