Crockpot- Pot Roast

So everyone has their own pot roast recipe. And everyone likes theirs best. I'm constantly trying to update mine and figure out one recipe that I just can't live without. I made this during the snow storm on Wednesday and it was pretty close to being the best!

2-3 lb pot roast
2 cloves garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
italian seasoning
7-8 potatoes (peeled and cut into chunks)
2 portions of baby carrots (mine were individual size but 1 small bag would be fine)
1/2-3/4 sweet onion (i diced 1/2 of that into teenytiny pieces and just cut the others into chunks)
1 can beef broth

Brown pot roast on the stove with 2 cloves of minced garlic and the olive oil. (When I get my garlic press from pampered chef they will be pressed!) Season both sides with salt and pepper (and italian seasoning though next time I'll probably omit that) place in crockpot. Pour half of broth over it. Throw the potatoes, carrots, and onion on top. Pour rest of broth over vegetables.

Cook on High for 4-6 hours or low for 6-8 hours. I cooked ours on high for 2 and switched to low for about 4. Vegetables will be tender and meat will fall apart.
