Grass-Fed Rump Roast (crock pot)

            There's such a difference in grass-fed beef and the crappy meat in the grocery store that's been fed corn..... I sure hope you know what I'm talking about!

I took this grass fed roast out of the freezer a couple of days ahead.

This morning I put it (it was over 3 1/2 lbs)  in the crock-pot along with some organic carrots I'd peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces. I added:
 sea salt
freshly ground pepper
 2 cups of water
 2 TBSP coconut oil (grass fed beef doesn't have as much fat as that corn-fed beef from the grocery)
 1 sweet organic onion, diced

 That's it. I left it on high all day while I was at school and going to a Crossfit WOD.
That crock-pot was very full.

It was so easy to get home from a tough work-out and dinner was ready. We had roast, carrots and onions, pistachios and a black plum. Yum! (Well, I had 12 Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips, too, but no one else did.... at least I counted them out....)

Anyone can do this. You will have great leftovers, too!
