Prepare all the vegetables.
Season the roast with salt and pepper. Sear it in a hot skillet, and then transfer it to a plate and set aside for now.
To the same skillet, add the broth, tomato paste, garlic, rosemary, and thyme. Bring up to a simmer, whisking to combine, and then remove from the heat.
Add the prepared vegetables, seared roast, and broth mixture to a slow cooker in the order that the recipe specifies. Cook on LOW heat for 8 to 10 hours (don't open it while it cooks!).
