Crock Pot Italian Beef

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2-3 lbs of beef roast
  • 2 c chopped carrots
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 2-3 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • Pinch of red chili flakes
  • 1 c diced tomatoes and juice
  • 1 c bone broth*
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Add dry ingredients to your slow cooker.
  2. Add wet ingredients on top of dry ingredients and stir a few times, so that the spices and tomato paste are evenly dispersed.
  3. Set slow cooker to low and cook for six to eight hours. (I actually got tied up in meetings and cooked mine for about eleven hours and it still turned out fine. Don’t you love slow cookers?!)
  4. Once complete, remove the beef roast and shred into hearty chunks. Put shredded beef chunks back into slow cooker and mix well.
  5. Serve on top of “riced” cauliflower, mashed sweet potato, spaghetti squash, or eat plain like stew. The possibilities are endless!
