Another crock pot winner! The onions become meltingly tender. Make sure to serve with crusty bread to dip into the juices!

This has to be the best tasting roast I have ever made! I was a little leery at first at the quantity of onions ... but they were simply delicious, and the sauce was very tasty. Thanks for posting a great recipe--I will make this again & again! -M :)
