Better than Arby's Roast Beef

1 (3 to 4 pound) roast
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Place roast in crock pot. Stir remaining ingredients together and pour over roast. Cook on LOW all night.

The next morning stir together. Remove any membrane or fat if desired. Stir well again. Let simmer on LOW until noon or evening.

Serve on buns.

Leftovers freeze beautifully.

Review from Nancy, 5/28/03 - Put it in the crock pot last night and this morning the house smelled heavenly...LOL!I had to take a sneak early taste test and it is AWESOME.
