California Pot Roast
Rub the roast with the salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and brown the roast, about 3 minutes per side. Place the meat in a slow cooker with the water, tomato sauce, onion and garlic. Cook on low heat all day, for about 5-6 hours. About 1 1/4 hours before you are ready to eat, combine the brown sugar, dry mustard, lemon juice, vinegar, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over the meat, and continue cooking another hour until fork-tender. Remove the meat, slice, and place on a warm platter. Meanwhile, let the sauce thicken by simmering on the stove for a few minutes; pour over sliced roast and serve.

The Best Whole Chicken in a Crock Pot
Combine the dried spices in a small bowl. Loosely chop the onion and place it in the bottom of the slow cooker. Remove any giblets from the chicken and then rub the spice mixture all over. You can even put some of the spices inside the cavity and under the skin covering the breasts. Put prepared chicken on top of the onions in the slow cooker, cover it, and turn it on to high. There is no need to add any liquid. Cook for 4 – 5 hours on high (for a 3 or 4 pound chicken) or until the chicken is falling off the bone.
