It's Fall!! I don't know about you but right about now I am craving some heavy meats, sweet potatoes and Fall dishes! Here is a great Paleo dish that is SO easy and tastes great. I have struggled with making pot roasts because they always have needed tons of ingredients or end up tasting dry which is a HUGE disappointment after smelling the flavors all day in your house! This one is AMAZING and sure to please! The key is that you DO NOT USE ANY LIQUID. Let your quality meat do the work. There will be plenty of juice in the final product. Please enjoy and let me know what you think! :)
- 3-5 lb GrassFed and Finished Arm or Chuck roast (I used Arm Roast in this video)
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 4-6 carrots, chopped (or more if your carrots are small)
- 3-4 cloves of garlic, minced or chopped
- 2-3 big pinches of sea salt
- 2 tsps of black pepper
- 2-3 large sweet potatoes
- 4-6 TB of salted pasture butter
Place roast in the bottom of crock pot.
Season with salt and pepper. I will usually rub the salt into the meat
Place all vegetables on top of the roast.
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 6 hours. Do not add any liquid! The meat will produce it's own and will come out tasting great!
When the roast is about an hour out from being done, start on your sweet potatoes.
Place chopped sweet potatoes in a large pan with water covering the potatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium high and let boil until tender.
Drain the sweet potatoes and return to the pot or a large mixing bowl.
Add butter to the sweet potatoes and blend with a hand mixer.
Serve pot roast on top of mashed sweet potatoes and serve warm.
