  • 2-3 lbs Beef roast
  • 2 c Chopped carrots
  • 1 White onion (small, diced)
  • 2-3 tbsp garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/2 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Basil (dried)
  • 1 tsp Oregano (dried)
  • 1/2 tsp Thyme (dried)
  • Pinch of red chili flakes
  • 1 c Tomatoes and juice (diced)
  • 1 c Bone broth*
  • 1 tbsp Tomato paste


  1. Add dry ingredients to your slow cooker.
  2. Add wet ingredients on top of dry ingredients and stir a few times, so that the spices and tomato paste are evenly dispersed.
  3. Set slow cooker to low and cook for six to eight hours. (I actually got tied up in meetings and cooked mine for about eleven hours and it still turned out fine. Don’t you love slow cookers?!)
  4. Once complete, remove the beef roast and shred into hearty chunks. Put shredded beef chunks back into slow cooker and mix well.
  5. Serve on top of “riced” cauliflower, mashed sweet potato, spaghetti squash, or eat plain like stew. The possibilities are endless!

Recipe Notes

This will produce a decent amount of liquid that can be used as gravy if you heat it up in a saucepan with a little arrowroot powder - 1 tbsp or so. Alternatively, you can save the liquid/broth for a future recipe!
