  3. I’m a little confused about this scrumptious looking recipe…I’m assuming the soup, water, stock and tomato paste go over the roast and all cook together…then, when you put the veggies in the gravy do you add the roast back on top and cook on high for another hour? Thanks for your help and all your delicious recipes…

      Hi Ginger. Thanks for sharing! I tweaked the recipe a bit. Yes, the soup mixture gets dumped over the roast and then you turn on your slow cooker. You add the veggies after the roast has cooked for about 6 hours.
