    I have a 2.8 lb chuck roast (beef) and we're prepping potatoes, carrots, and onions to throw in with it with a little worstechire sauce, spices, and water. I can't find my manual and don't remember how long I'm supposed to cook this a slow cooker on high...does anyone know?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure exactly. I usually throw it in on high until its nearly done and then turn it to low to finish and to soak in juices until dinner time. Sorry I can't be more help.
    I'm also making the same dinner. But in the oven. Yum

    I'd use high and check it in three or four hours. Usually I cook that combo for most of the day. It doesn't hurt it to take the lid off and check as often as needed. DDD

    Sounds good- we're trying that. I sure wish I could find a green tomato to fry up but shoot, I can't find out where to buy them and that's shocking to me given that we are in farm country now.

    About 4 hrs.....but if it's not tender enough just do another hour or so.

    4 hours on high, 8 hours on low is the standard. Has always worked for me. :)
