This was one of my favorite meals as a boy. Mom didn't have a crock pot so she used a cast iron dutch oven, and cooked it in a 250 degree oven all day! She would take out the meat and bay leaf, leaving all the veggies in the stock and thicken it up with a flour & water slurry. She served it with mashed potatoes, and steamed green beans and it was AWESOME!! I cook the potatoes in the crock pot with the roast and just fork mash 'em. I tweeked it to make it safe for us diabetics & low sodiums
