Method

In a small bowl, stir together salt, dried onion, pepper and nutmeg.

Pat roast dry and rub with seasoning mixture.

Add roast and brown on all sides, about 10 minutes total.

Transfer to a 6-quart slow cooker and surround with carrots, potatoes and cabbage.

Add onions and broth to skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until browned, about 12-14 minutes.

Stir in cider.

Pour onions and liquid over roast.

Cover and cook until beef is fork-tender, 8 to 9 hours on low or 4 to 4 1/2 hours on high.
