    Yes, but be sure to add at least 1 cup of warm liquid to the crock first. Do not preheat the unit. Cook recipes containing frozen meats an additional 4 to 6 hours on Low or 2 hours on High.

    I always cook my london broil in the crockpot and most of the time it's from frozen. The only liquid I put in is a splash or three of worsteshire sauce. The vegies make enough juice. I still only cook it maybe 8-10 hrs on low.

    never have cooked it frozen, I usually put it in the frig over night to thaw(in a bowl of course to catch any drippings) then I put it in the next morning.

    I have cooked roast from the frozen state, I don't normally add any additional water then what I would if it was thawed. I cook it for the eight hours. HTH

    I always cook my roast frozen. Throw potato chunks and baby carrots in and then toss in the frozen roast, sprinkle with salt, pepper and onion powder and put the lid on. I do this once a month on a Sunday. Start at 6am and eat at 3PM when we get home from Church. got one Sunday a month i have extra meetings so 3 hours meeting day turns into 6 hours plus the hour each way driving. We don't eat a lot of meat so that once a month long Sunday treat my family really enjoys! I found cooking it frozen adds much more juices than if I thaw it first.

    I love my slow cooker for the very reason I can put a roast or whole chicken in it right from the freezer. If you want more of a dry roasting, put the meat on top of vegetables to keep it out of the juice. If no veggies, make a few balls from crumbled aluminum foil and use that. Works great.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
