So I decided to actually use one of the paleo cookbooks I bought because I was going to make a buffalo roast today and wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to season it. This was an EXTREMELY easy and quick meal to make. It literally took me 15 minutes or less to prep it and get it thrown together in the crock-pot and leave it alone. I went with this really super easy recipe from the Primal Blueprint cookbook:
1 4-lb roast
1 teaspoon crushed rosemary
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 whole onions, sliced
1 cup water, beef or chicken broth
6 cloves garlic, minced
Mix the spices together in a bowl and rub onto the roast. Brown the roast on both sides in a large pan on the stove, then place in a slow cooker, cover with garlic, onions, and broth. Set the slow cooker on low for 7-8 hours and let it become awesome. Remove from slow cooker, slice and enjoy! One tip, don’t use the sweet onions. It sounded like a good idea at the time when I was buying them, but I really think it would have tasted better with white onions.
There is also an optional sauce/gravy that you can make to go with it, but I didn’t do that. It looked delicious, just didn’t have the extra time and the roast was SUPER tender and juicy so it didn’t really need it.
