I stick these ingredients all together in the slow cooker, I usually try to spread the gravy/broth mixture on both the top and bottom of the roast.  I try my best to set the crockpot to cook on low for 8 hours..  Sometimes I get started a little late, so I have also cooked it on high for at least 4 hours, 5 is better.

Now I add vegetables after 5 hours of cooking on low, at after 2 hours cooking on high.  I add celery, carrots and onion, and I let it cook for the rest of the time.  I found that if I cook it for the entire period, the vegetables got too soggy, and the pot roast tasted too much like carrots.  However, if I include it for just the last bit of time works out to the perfect texture and flavor.

I make mashed potatoes to go with the pot roast, and serve the pot roast and gravy on top of a nice sized pile of mashed potatoes.
