Super easy to make, and tasty to eat. Not my favorite pot roast, but with preparation this convenient we might come back to it anyway.

I'm always a little afraid to mix sugar with salt, but I did this time and was terrific, I like it.

Use the tops of celery chopped fine and substitute chopped celery for the turnips and rutabaga. Add an additional qty of carrot, potato, and onion to replace original veg. Also, use low sodium beef broth and small can of tomato sauce instead of brown sugar.. If available, use a blade roast instead of chuck roast.

This was a great slow cooker meal. We both enjoyed the vegetables and a nice change without potatoes! Next time I prepare this, I think I will cut down on the brown sugar. It was a little sweeter than my husband and I like. Other than than, it was terrific.
