  • 4-5 pound bottom beef roast
  • extra virgin olive oil EVOO
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • a handful of fresh parsley roughly chopped
  • 1 cup gluten free beef broth homemade or store bought
  • 4 carrots peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 3-4 potatoes peeled and cubed


  • Rub roast with oil.
  • Combine rosemary, garlic, parsley, and salt in a small bowl and rub over the entire roast.
  • In a skillet, brown the roast on all sides and transfer to your slow cooker fat side up.
  • Heat a tablespoon of oil in the same skillet. Add carrots and onions and sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer carrots and onions to the slow cooker.
  • Add potatoes to the slow cooker as well.
  • Pour beef broth into the slow cooker over the roast.
  • Cover and cook for 7 hours on low.
  • Remove the meat to a cutting board and slice it thinly against the grain.
  • With a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes and carrots to a serving dish. 


  • Usually, there are about 1 1/2 cups of gravy left in the slow cooker from the meat. In case there's not enough, you may stir in some more broth. Add salt to taste.
  • I like to return the sliced beef to soak in the gravy in the slow cooker until I'm ready to serve. 
  • If you’re following a low-carb way of eating, leave the potatoes out and you can pair your pot roast with mashed cauliflower. Yum.
