This is a our favorite Sunday meal! It's cooks all day while we're at church. I serve it with mashed potatoes and gravy. I use the drippings from the roast, add water and beef bouillon and thicken it with a corn starch and water mixture.
3 1/2 pound beef roast
1 large onion, quartered
salt & pepper
3 bay leaves (optional)
Place the roast in the crockpot. Season with salt and pepper, and a little bit of garlic powder. Put 3 bay leaves on the roast. Add the onion quarters. Cook on high for 2 hours. Add the baby carrots, and season with salt and pepper. Turn down to low and cook for 6 - 7 more hours. Use drippings to make gravy.
