I just cut up some onions and added it and after thinking on it I added some dry onion soup mix...I can't think of anything else in the cupboard I could add!

A few other tips for future browning:
- Use paper towels to thoroughly dry the meat.
- Immediately before browning salt and pepper the meat.
- When placing meat in the pan and turning the meat, do not disturb the meat for the allotted time 3-4 minutes. Leave it alone and let it brown.
- Also for crock pot, recipes use a liquid (broth, beer, wine) to deglaze the pan used for browning. Pour liquid into hot skillet, use spoon or spatula to scrape up brown bits, and pour liquid with brown bits into crock pot.

You might like this site for cooking tips. The Pioneer Woman gets things down to basics, lots of photos along the way, and is generally pretty witty. Here's her roast recipe:

Browse around her site, and you'll come up with your next month of culinary, achievable, projects!

I just checked out the Cowboy Food area. Got some awesome looking grub there! \:\)

i just throw it with the veggies in. I usually will put a couple cans of cream of mushroom or onion in with it and add water.

I made a deer roast over the weekend using Emeril seasoning, bay leaves, pack of onion soup and plenty of garlic. I usually use beer for my liquid but used red wine instead. Turned out wonderful. The women my wife work with absolutely loved it.

Cooked it on low about 6 hours then added taters, carrots and onions for 2 more hours.

I think the seasoning is something I'm going to learn more about...like thyme and bay leaves and such. If this turns out ok I've got a duck and a goose breasted out that we killed last week, may have to give that a try!

Don't let it intimidate you. Use fresh, whole ingredients and you can't really go wrong with the crock pot. IMO, you should ditch any recipe that calls for soup mixes, ranch dressing, and powdered garlic or onion. Fresh vegetables, fresh herbs and whole ingredients. Next tim you're at the grocery, pick up a few boxes of Beef Stock (not broth, there is a difference). For cooking wine, I'll buy those little, individual bottles of Stutter Home.
