I am a big fan of using my crock pot and I always use the same easy pot roast crock pot recipe because it is easy and delicious! It’s also a pretty inexpensive meal if you get your meat on sale. I got my roast for under $11 and will use it for 2 meals. I think that is a pretty good deal for a family of 4!
I say to use a 2-3 pound chuck roast, but you can use a butt roast also. A 2-3 lb roast will probably feed 5-6 people and I always have too much so I always cut my roast in half and freeze the other half. This works best for us, but I included ingredients to use for a full roast.
The gravy is really easy to make and you can easily make it gluten free by using a gluten free flour or “clean” by using whole wheat, spelt or einkorn flour. To make this easy pot roast crock pot recipe Paleo, just use turnips instead of white potatoes and tapioca or arrowroot starch for the gravy.
It is the middle of December and here in Utah where we live it is normally very cold and snowy. There is usually so much snow all the time for months on and on. Well it has only snowed twice this year and the amount of snow was very small compared to a normal Utah snow. I mean it hasn’t snowed enough to send the kiddos out to build a snowman (which they have been wanting to build Olaf) or throw snowballs and just play in the snow!
As Christmas gets closer we are all hoping it will start to snow! I don’t know about you guys and depending where you live, it doesn’t really feel like the holiday season until there is snow every where!
Not only has there not been any snow but it has been abnormally warm! I have been walking around in sandals and no jacket! This unheard of in December here in Utah! Where you do you live? What is your winter normally like? Has it been snowing where you are? Comment below! Here is a cute picture of my daughter playing dress up while she is wishing for snow!
