One word... EXCELLANT. Thats it. I got the pot really hot, browned both sides with a bit of butter, salt, pepper, and cumin (used instead of caraway seed). Added the liquids and onion soup mix, simmered for 1 hour on each side before moving it to the slow cooker for about 4 hours. DELISH. Thanks, Ken in 06614
