Trim the roast of any visible fat and place it into the crockpot. In a small bowl, combine the contents of the 3 packets. Pour on top of the meat. Flip the meat over a few times to get it covered with seasoning on all sides.
Add 1 cup of water.
Cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for 4-5. The meat will be more tender if you cook it low and slow.
20-30 minutes before eating, add 2 more cups of warm water to the crockpot, and flip to high.
The meat only needs 1 cup of water on it to cook properly, but the spices are too concentrated to only have 1 cup of water in the pot when it's time to eat. Waiting to add the water until the end will help the meat retain it's shape, and the added water will make a nice juicy gravy.
