    um, no..

    just put it in the crockpot with whatever veggies and seasonings (And the liquid) and leave it.
    no need to brown it.

    Generally I don't brown the roast unless the recipe calls for it. And, if it does, I skip that recipe and move on to another that doesn't have that step. I have browned a roast in the past by tossing it in to a pan and searing it like I would chops or something.

    I'm about 50/50 on whether or not I do. When I do, I just put a little bit of oil in the pan, heat it up good and do a quick sear on all sides.

    back in the day (60s, 70s, 80s, etc) they would brown it before putting it in the oven so it wouldn't take as long to cook, and so it would be less likely to dry out.
    With a crockpot, you do not need to brown it.
