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:
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!
