I take the nicest organic roast of beef that I can afford and put it in the crockpot with a tablespoon of onion soup mix. A while later I add veggies like baby carrots, onion. If my men are home I add potatos (but not for me or if it's just me and DH)
Alot of the fat can be trimmed at serving time and some will stay in the fluids left in the crock.
