Just put the roast in the crock pot in the early morning with your favorite seasonings (see variations below), and by afternoon you will have delicious melt-in-your-mouth beef, ready for a traditional sit-down roast beef dinner, or your favorite sandwich!

As old as the swamps in Louisiana, this recipe predates the title pot roast! This is the most wonderful tasting pot roast you'll ever try. Worth every minute of the work! I have such fond memories of my grandmother creating this magic in her kitchen and her entire house filled with the heavenly aroma. For the Creole seasoning, I use Emeril's with half the salt and then watch the amount of salt and pepper you add depending on the amount already in your Creole seasoning.
Note: Beef Sirloin (or Round) Tip Center Roast is cut from the Beef Round Tip, Cap Off (IMPS/NAMP 167A) by following the natural seams to separate the tip side, tip center and tip bottom. The tip center is left whole and sold as a roast. Average weight is 2 to 2-1/2 pounds.

*** UPDATE 10/29/08 - Remember that this is a tough cut of meat if overcooked. Cooked to medium, it is very chewy and you'll have to cut it in 'wafer' thin slices, medium rare is the most you can get away with. I tried this on a cut of cross rib and the seasonings overpowered it so let me know if you have any luck using with different cut of meat. I have cooked it too long and although had great flavor was just to rough to eat for my taste, so I used for stew meat the next day..
We have cooked both types of roast, both on the bbq grill and in the oven, either way they are delicious, lots of taste, if you prefer rare, remove earlier. The veggies are wonderful and it is great to have a whole meal in one carefree operation. Marinating time up to 24 hours.
This is a great way to roast a leg of lamb. You may also use a butterflied leg and rub the rosemary blend inside and out - you do not need to score the lamb if you rub the mixture inside. I found this recipe on the net. It is good.
