      Made this for dinner tonight. It wasn't as hard to make as I thought. Roasted in the oven and then when it was finished I transferred it to the crock pot. Set the crock pot on warm to keep it until dinner. It slid right off of the bone it was so tender. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. My favorite part was the onions, they were to die for! No way I was throwing them away after the roast was done. Yum! Served with oven roasted red potatoes.
