Do you need to seal bef before putting it into a crock pot/slow cooker?

I always seal the beef in a pan before putting it into the crock pot (slow cooker) with the sauce etc. But today i completely forgot and i've put it straight into the pot and only just realised 3 hrs after turning it on. Will it still be ok to eat or will it not cook/taste right?

Thx

    it tells you in the manual to seal the meat before you put it into you slow cooker, but its not necessary to do it, it affects the colour of the meat not the taste.so enjoy your meal.

    i've stopped this part of the process as i've realised theres no difference in the finished dish.toss it all in and go out for the day ,that is the whole ide of a slow cooker,
