My grandmother's Pot Roast recipe

My family loves this recipe. My grandmother gave it to my mother, who gave it to me. It is simple and easy and with the exception I make it in a slow cooker, it is just like grandma used to make. When I share it with others they often look at the ingredients and wonder if they really go well together. Trust me, they do.

2/3 Cup Orange Juice

1 packet dehydrated Onion Soup mix

4 Tablespoons Ketchup

4 Tablespoons Pancake Syrup

Garlic Powder, to taste

Pepper, to taste

Pot Roast (or chicken)

Desired Vegetables

Spray slow cooker crock with non-stick spray. Reserving meat and vegetables, mix other ingredients together and put in bottom of crock pot. Add meat. Cook on low for 8 hours basting once or twice. Add vegetables to cook to desired tenderness (approximately half way).
