the BEST slowcooker roast recipe

When you have such good meat, you want to do it justice by cooking it well.  As a farmer, I've had many opportunities to succeed and fail in the kitchen with our pasture raised products.  

This recipe is

FILLING

TENDER

MOIST

FLAVORFUL

WARM

NUTRITIOUS

and all this for about ten minutes work!

Simple, Tender Pot Roast with Holy Grail Gravy from Phoenix Helix

A customer, Keri, shared that she had success with the recipe, so I decided to try it as well.  My modifications were that I did not have celery or rosemary sprigs and I forgot the garlic.  I used beef broth instead of water and actually I used a brisket since that is what I found in the freezer first.  I have found 100% grass fed beef cooks faster than most recipes allow, so I put the veggies in the slowcooker on low at noon, added the beef at 3p and took it out of the slowcooker around 6p.  It was perfectly done and probably could have come out an hour or so before if I had needed.  

The gravy was easy to make and so warm and filling.  I liked it so much, I just put some in a glass to sip on while I finished up making the rest of dinner!  A gravy chock full of nutrition from 100% grass fed, pasture raised beef and organic vegetables that tastes wonderful is a SUCCESS in my book.

My appreciation to Keri for sharing this recipe with us!

Try out this recipe and let us know what you think.  Maybe you'll find a new family favorite, too!
