LINE a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker with a Regular size Reynolds Kitchens® Slow Cooker Liner. Fit liner snugly against bottom and sides of bowl; pull top of liner over rim.

PLACE water and three-fourths of the vegetables in the lined-slow cooker. Reserve 1 tablespoon onion soup mix. Sprinkle remaining onion soup mix over vegetables; stir gently to coat evenly. Sprinkle and rub salt, pepper and thyme over the pot roast. Place pot roast on top of vegetables. Place remaining vegetables around pot roast; sprinkle vegetables with remaining onion soup mix.

COVER and cook 8 to 9 hours on LOW OR 5 to 6 hours on HIGH, until pot roast is fork tender.

CAREFULLY remove lid to allow steam to escape. Serve food directly from lined slow cooker using a wooden or plastic spoon. Remove all food and cool slow cooker completely before removing liner from slow cooker. Do not lift or transport liner with food inside.

Tip: for fewer servings, use half of each ingredient and cook in a 2 ½ to 3-quart slow cooker lined with a Small size Reynolds Kitchens® Slow Cooker Liner.
