3. Cover and cook on LOW heat for 6 to 7 hours or until roast is tender.

If you want to build on this recipe, it's easy. Just add to the crock pot some sliced sweet red bell pepper and onion. You can add a can of chicken broth to create more liquid, then thicken it a bit at the end with a combination of cornstarch and water. Serve over brown rice for a complete meal.
