If your crock pot has a high browning setting, brown all sides of your meat, in 3-5 Tbs. margarine. You can also use a large saute pan on your stove top, being sure to scrape the pans dripping into the crockpot for yummy flavoring. When meat is golden to deep brown on all sides, add hot tap water to half way up your crockpot. Leave crockpot on high.
In a saute pan on your stove top, add 1-2 tsp. of margarine with onions and saute until they're a deep golden brown, stirring often so they dont burn. Pour the sauteed onions in the crockpot and place pan back on the stove top. Carefully pour hot tap water in the pan, stirring to get all the sticky onion leftovers off the bottom and sides, then pour this watery mixture into your crockpot. This makes great flavoring.
Add hot tap water to cover meat. Add your favorite seasonings. When making this meal, remember the meat will take longer to cook, add potatoes carrots about half way through the cooking stage, so they don't get mushy. You may need to add hot tap water, to cover over the vegetables. This yummy dish takes a while if you want your meat to be tender, but its worth the wait.
