  • I would season it with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder, or yes, one of the Mrs. dash . And put the veggies in now, it adds more flavor.

  • I put everything in at the beginning. You can spice it up any way you like. I usually only use salt and pepper, because that's the way we like it.

  • If the veggies are fresh, put them in now. I like a package of lipton soup mix, some water, and a cream of mushroom soup, makes a nice gravy.

  • I use salt, pepper, garlic salt, and I ALWAYS throw in a pack of Lipton Onion Soup Mix. It makes it! You could put the veggies in now, but I usually stick them in the last 2 hours.

  • carrots/ potatoes/ onions/celery ..... for seasoning it could simple like salt, garlic, pepper (thats what my mom would put in).. I just look through the panry & look for a good mix..if it would taste good with meat put it in there.. never has failed me..

    also i put in the roast & veggies all together. the meat will fall apart but not the veggies, they are nice & soft but not mushy at all.

  • I agree with Nika75...but I use the beefy onion soup mix. It is good.

  • I always put Sangria Wine and water on my roast with salt and pepper, then I let it cook all day it is really good.

  • I use salt pepper Lawyrs and garlic powder. I also use beef broth instead of water. I put the veggies in when I put in the roast. I use onions, potatoes and carrots. I just made one last night and it was yummy!!!
