It’s not how well the bow you shoot shoots, it's how well you shoot the bow you shoot.

A buddy of mine did one the other year with salsa. Put roast in crock pot with a jar of salsa, I think he did it for about 12 hours. I was very good.

Re: Bear roast in slow cooker

Here is one I have made with venison and has turned out great. Let me know how it works with bear.

Slow Cooker Roast

3 pounds boneless roast
1 large onion, sliced
1 tablespoon soy
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

Put meat in slow cooker and cover with onion. Sprinkle with soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and pepper. In a small bowl combine the onion soup mix and the mushroom soup; mix together and pour mixture over venison. Cook on Low setting for 6 hours (may want to go longer with bear.)

If you are willing to chop it up into stew chunks this is my favorite bear recipe of all time!

Bear Stew

1 1/2 - 2 pounds stew meat
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 can (16 oz) whole tomatoes, undrained
1 cup water (omit if you use 24 oz. tomatoes)
1/4 cup white wine
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 medium onion cut lengthwise and sliced thin
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cloves garlic minced
1 bay leaf
2 medium baking potatoes

Combine flour, marjoram, salt, pepper in a food storage bag. Shake.
Add meat and shake to coat. Heat oil on medium-high heat until hot. Brown the meat in oil.
Add all remaining ingredients but potatoes. Heat to boil. Reduce to simmer for one hour stirring occasionally.
Cut potatoes into 1 inch chunks. Add potatoes. Heat to boil. Reduce to simmer for one hour stirring occasionally.
Discard bay leaf before serving.

Re: Bear roast in slow cooker

Whatever recipe you choose to use, one of the important aspects of cooking bear is to trim as much fat as possible from the meat.
IMHO, and that of many others, the fat imparts a strong and gamey taste and needs to be removed.

That being said, when I do roasts of most any kind, I marinate them for 3 days in Italian dressing. When I put them in the crock I add: sliced red potatoes, peas, baby carrots, onion and green pepper slices, mushrooms and brown gravy. And finally a can of diced tomatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.
Usually turns out quite well.
