Buffalo Roast


Today was Barbells For Boobs. Ger went to Crossfit Thunder and did Grace at 225 lbs in 7 -ish minutes! I knew he would be hungry.....
I was looking forward to a nice buffalo roast all tender and awesome from the crockpot, and that's exactly what I got. If you haven't had bison, you should treat yourself!

I put the following items in the crockpot:

a Buffalo roast, just over 2 lbs.
2 cups of basic chicken stock
1 large package of carrots (I always peel my own organic carrots now)
4 yellow onions, chopped
1 tsp Salt Traders Cherry Wood Smoked Sea Salt (salttraders.com. I buy this in the 1-lb packages - that's much more economical than buying the little 3 oz jars)
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
freshly ground black pepper, to taste

It cooked all day on low, maybe 9 hours. I fished out the bay leaves and let them know that dinner was ready.  It was so tender and moist that both my sons, Ger and Isaac, said it was AWESOME. 
You should try it for yourself. It has great flavor.
Ger is adding more Smoked Sea Salt in the photo - I think he likes that stuff as much as I do now!
