Cooking Attempt: Pot Roast / Stew?

I made a meager attempt at Pot Roast in the crock pot last night. I think I got it mixed up with Beef Stew so it may be some mix of the two, using roast beef and seasonings yet liquidy like beef stew? I'm not sure; none of the recipes were very clear on everything. I added potatoes and carrots to the pot and filled it up with water (neither were covered by the recipe I found; all they recommended for liquids was 3/4 cup wine). That's in addition to the 3.4 lbs of beef roast rump, 1 onion (White? Yellow? Red? I went with yellow), 2 garlic cloves, and a few teaspoons of thyme, rosemary, pepper, and salt. The only thing I have left is to make some gravy out of the liquid.

It seems to have turned out okay. The flavor is very subtle and possibly weak, but it is there. The roast is falling apart now, mmm. The potatoes and carrots are holding their form but very soft.

I made this for my co-worker and his wife. They had their baby yesterday (last night) so I figured they would appreciate a meal that was already prepared and ready to be eaten (plus spices? Heh). Once I hear back from them I'll be dropping it off at their place.
