Quick and Easy Crock Pot Roast

The saga  of feeding your family when you're taking night classes and the solutions I've found are getting better, tastier, and easier. I'll write an update on school and such later. For now, I just need to record this AMAZING recipe.

This one was so easy I couldn't believe it. 

1 bag Trader Joe's potatoes (with some kind of veggies in it makes it the easiest)
2 Cups Beef Broth
Beef Rump Roast
Optional additions: Carrots, Onions, Celery, Green Beans

Put the ingredients in your crock pot and let it go for 4 hours on Hi, 8 hours on low. Serve.

Why have I not known about the wonders of Crock pot meals before now?
