Here's an affordable way to cook and provide a good, big roast of meat for the family. After cooking this roast in a tomato broth all day in a slow cooker, the meat will just fall apart with a fork. Melt in your mouth. This is a feast for a king.
Here's what you'll need:
Prep the Meat.
Unwrap the meat. Season it with salt and pepper. Rub it in there. Put coconut oil in a skillet. You could throw in some olive oil and butter too. You want to brown-up the sides of the beef roast. It's like frying a meat ball before cooking it.
Throw It All Together.
Throw into the crock pot the onions, carrots, celery, leeks, and garlic.
Put the roast on the top.
Pour the tomatoes, chicken broth, and wine over it.
Toss in the rosemary, thyme, and other spices.
Let 'er cook for 8 hours. So, start in the morning before work. And you'll serve this for dinner. If you're around while cooking it, keep basting the meat, which means keeping it wet. Don't let it dry out. It like to keep padding butter on it, just like basting a turkey.
Plate It. Serve It.
After it's all cooked, you're ready to serve.
I don't take it out of the cooker. I like to plate right from the slow cooker pot, because everything is right there, including the juices.
If you'd like, you could pour out the juices, onion, and some carrots and throw it all into a blender to make a thick gravy kind of thing.
Serve. You're a king.
Pair it with a good, bold, fruit-forward red wine. Consider this particular wine.
