    2. Stab beef with a fork over all surfaces of the meat. Rub dry spice mixture over meat.
    3. Slice the onion and put on the bottom of the crock pot.
    4. Place beef on top of the onions
    5. Cut potatoes into large chunks and put into slow cooker. salt and pepper to suit your taste.
    6. Dissolve a beef bouillon cube in 1 1/2 to 2 cups hot water and pour over the vegetables, surrounding the meat.
    7. Cook on medium high heat in slow cooker for first two hours, then reduce heat to low-medium for an additional three hours. 5 hours cooking time usually does the trick for me, but 6 hours is fine too!
    8. **Key: If it ain’t fallin’ apart, it’s not ready yet! You should not even be able to slice this — the servings are literally pulled apart with a fork straight to the plate.**.
