So this is not a vegan meal, I'll just say that up front.
I've been making this pot roast since Cooks Illustrated wrote an article on slow cooking meat and what happens.
I buy as much meat as I can afford for this meal because no matter how much I buy its never enough. The key to this meal is LOW and SLOW. I used to make it in the oven but my slow cooker (like a crock pot) makes this fantabuliuos. I know its not a word. :-) The good news is you can buy a really cheap cut and it ends up melting in your mouth perfection. This is also a great meal for kids with oral sensory issues. The meat is so soft it doesn't' even get caught in Sweet Potatoes braces. It's also a phase 2 meal (with cheating for those who cheat on SBP Diet ) I know I know you shouldn't, but pot roast without potatoes... I just can't do it...
so here is the basics
a cut of meat that will feed your family I'd go for 2 servings each.
10 small salt potatoes (do not cut! leave whole so they don't "contaminate" the rest of the food).
4-5 peeled carrots chopped in 1 inch pieces
5-8 stalks of celery chopped in 1 inch pieces
1 white onion chopped in 1 inch pieces
Using Olive oil sear the meat on all sides.
Place in crock pot / slow cooker or an oven pot with a tight fitting lid.
Toss in all the carrots, celery, onion.
Put the potatoes on top and off to the side.
add water 3/4 up the side of the meat.
Cook for a minimum of 6 hours at 300 degrees F. or mark 3 for a slow cooker or medium heat for a crock pot. After 6 hours you can tun it down to low. I like to start mine at 9 or 10 am and let it cook until 6 pm.
serve au jus If your not doing SBP then you can make gravy with corn starch, if your on phase 3 you can use tapioca flour to thicken the jus.
Don't serve the taters to Your SBP target.
We like to eat it in bowls.
