Then put the baby carrots under the roast or along the side
Put foil on top
Turn your crock pot on high,but before you go to bed,turn it down on low.
Your roast,and carrots should be done in the morning.
This makes the most tender roast that I ever had,and is the only way I fix a rump roast.Plus,the carrots are so delicious this way,and it smells so good in the morning.Most of the meal is cooked,just add mash potatoes.Hope you will try it!
