1 envelope McCormick's Beef Stew Seasonings
5-7 Carrots - chopped into 2" pieces
5-7 Celery Stalks - Chopped into 2" pieces
5-7 Red or Yukon Gold potatoes - Cubed in quarters
1 yellow onion - chopped into quarters
Spray a saute pan with cooking spray over med-hi heat. Sprinkle roast liberally with salt & pepper. Place the roast in the hot skillet for a couple of minutes on all sides to give it a good brown crust. While it is searing chop the veggies.
In a slow-cooker, put half of the veggies in the bottom, followed by the roast, and then the rest of the veggies. Mix the seasoning packet with 1/2 C. cold water and pour into the slow cooker, covering everything.
Cook on Low for 6-8 hours or High for 4 Hours.
