This is exactly how we have

This is exactly how we have always made pot roast in my family. My maternal grandfather's mother was, in his words, "a full-blooded Irishwoman with hair the color of a new copper penny." May the wind be always at your back and the sun shine on your bonnet!

It would be nice to have

It would be nice to have slow-cooker alternative times.

This recipe is an old one.

This recipe is an old one. However, in our experience, cooking on low for 7 to 8 hours works best. But it depends on the size of your crock pot. If using a 4-quart slow cooker, try on low for 7 to 8 hours.

hey there! i don't even own a crockpot, but slow cook all the time....in several different Lodge American made cast iron pots/dutch ovens-i have the 3, 5, and 6 quart size, and to date, I have not found ANYTHING i can't make in them, in the oven, that hasn't come out fabulous, including our annual St. patrick's day corned beef dinner. I highly recommend doing away with electrical devices like crock pots and making a very small, but lifetime's worth of happiness investment in a few good pieces of cast iron...you will never regret it! :)
