    I prefer a top round, eye round, or other lean cut of beef. I brown the roast on all sides, then put in crockpot with low-sodium beef broth & cut up onion. Cook it on HIGH for about 3 hours, then put in cut up carrots & potatoes & cook for another hour. The veggies are cooked but not overcooked. - 8/1/11

    Wonderful flavor--will definitely make again. I substituted celery root for the rutabaga and doubled the parsnips. Also used a very lean rump roast that turned out very tender. Incredibly good! - 5/24/11

    The parsnip and rutabagas can be difficult to locate, but well worth the effort. They add a unique sweetness to the broth that is produced.
    A small yam cut up will completely dissolve and add additional texture and sweetness. - 5/6/11

    I make this a little differently. I put chunks of onions on the bottom of a crockpot, set the roast on top sprinkle with garlic salt/pepper, and cook. I don't add liquid or precook. Veggies can be added for the last hour of cooking on high temp. - 7/7/11

    I have never had much luck with pot roasts - but this one was so simple...and it ended up being delicious, too! Plus...I got to try two new veggies I'd never had before! Prepared exactly as written, you can't go wrong with this one! - 2/9/12

    I also used the Celery Root instead of Rutabaga only becuase of the oxolates in the Rutabaga that I need to shy away from otherwise this Recipe is easy and full of flavor. - 12/29/12

    The recipe looks wonderful and I have often enjoyed beef roasts in slow cookers. I am a little concerned though after recently reading "never cook beef roasts in a slow cooker because of possible bacteria growth during the several hours of crock pot cooking." Any feedback on this would help - thanks - 10/30/11
