Americana Pot Roast is my new favourite crockpot recipe!! I made it at my parent's place while we were visiting and it turned out 1-der-ful!! Just plopped it in Mom's crock for 8 hours and dined for a few days on it. :o) The roast turned out soooooo tender, it just fell apart (i don't know if it was the way this recipe drenches the roast in liquid, or if it was the natural beef we used.)

1 boned rump roast (4 lb)
1 cup sliced onion
2 tablespoons Hungarian sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup dry red wine OR 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 can (14 oz. size) beef broth
8 small red potatoes, cleaned and washed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
6 carrots, cut into chunks

Directions:Heat oven to 300. Place a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add roast, browning on all sides. Remove from pan; reduce heat to medium. Add onion, saute 10 minutes. Add paprika, basil, oregano, thyme and garlic; saute 1 minute. Add wine, water, and broth; bring to a boil. Peel a 1/2" strip around each potato. Place in pan; add salt, pepper, carrots. Return roast to pan. Cover and bake at 300F for 2 hours. Turn roast; cover and bake an additional hour until tender. Serve with vegetables and broth, or make gravy from broth if desired.
