When trying to stay on track with a Paleo lifestyle, those go-to, easy to make meals are a must! So, here is one of our favorites.
This has been my go-to dish on lazy Sundays for a few years now. I love that I could prep it in minutes, toss it in the slow cooker and have a healthy meal ready for dinner. Ironically, now that I am a mama, these are much less lazy Sundays, but much more of super busy ones that don’t leave me much time to spend in the kitchen!
I always brown my meats and saute my onions (and sometimes other vegetables) before placing them in the slow-cooker. This just adds some extra flavor. If you are in a hurry, you can always skip these steps and your roast will still be tender and juicy!
Lazy Sunday Pot Roast
3-4 lb. chuck roast
2 tablespoons ghee
1 cup beef stock (Don’t want to make your own? Buy pasture-raised broth HERE.)
3 cloves garlic
1 onion, sliced
3 carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper
- Coat chuck roast with oregano, paprika and cumin. Salt and pepper generously.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of ghee in a heavy bottomed pan. Saute onions until translucent.
- Add garlic, carrots and celery and saute for a few minutes until fragrant. Move all vegetables into the slow-cooker.
- Heat remaining tablespoon of ghee in the same pan. Brown roast on all sides – a few minutes per a side. Move to slow-cooker.
- Add beef stock and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- Salt and pepper before serving.
