Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I was wondering why you used fresh onion and onion powder. Could you use just two onions instead, or does the onion powder give the meat more flavor than two onions would? I love the use of the diced tomatoes with the onion to make a veggie sauce that coats the outside of the roast to keep it moist while cooking.

I love slow roasting Meats in my oven,but when I can't be home, then the slow cooker is a safer and more convenient option. When I make this I throw in a bag of of tiny red potatoes about an hour before it's done and a bag of frozen vegetables when it's done. There's enough heat left to cook the small cuts of frozen vegetables.

Do you drain the tomatoes before adding?

No, you do not drain the tomatoes before adding them. Enjoy!
