Roast preparations

First things first though. Let’s discuss this Root Vegetable Pot Roast from the beginning. The meat is the highlight of the meal after all. The first thing I do for a slow-cooker roast is salt and pepper that slab of meat, throw it on a hot saute pan with olive oil, let it sizzle and brown. When you brown your meat you lock in the juice of the meat and your meat will be so tender when dinner time rolls around. I used a small 2 pound roast for this recipe but I believe you could use any chuck roast up to three pounds. If you are looking for a great deal on a chuck roast, I have had great success with shopping at Kroger.

Soften & season up the vegetables

Once you get a beautiful sear on all sides of the meat it is time to soften and season veggies. This recipe includes carrots, parsnips, and a turnip. What you need to do is slice the carrots and the parsnips. With the turnip, you are going to chop it up into little square or rectangular pieces.

Season it up with Herbs de Provence

This paleo root vegetable pot roast was seasoned with Herbs de Provence from Spice Islands. I honestly do not know what the exact ingredients are in this blend. It only says “spices & lavender” on the back label. No clue on why it is so top secret but it is. I wish I could fill you in on the exact seasonings that go into this blend. I read the label on another Herbs de Provence label and it had the following ingredients: marjoram, savory, thyme, rosemary, basil, fennel, sage, lavender.

This is a very fragrant and aromatic spice. It is not a seasoning that I use often but I do enjoy seasoning a big hunk of meat with this.

The Instant Pot Aura

This paleo pot roast can be cooked with a regular slow-cooker but I would love to let you know exactly how I cooked my meal. I just recently gave the Instant Pot Aura a whirl and published a review on my blog. I have been using this small appliance in my kitchen for about one month and I am head over heels in love with it! The Instant Pot Aura is a 6-quart multicooker that is a 10-in-1 small appliance for your kitchen. Instead of using a saute pan AND a slow-cooker the Instant Pot Aura is capable of both browning the meat AND slow-cooking it.

Paleo-friendly recipe right here!

If you are a seasoned cook (pun intended) you should already have all, if not most, of these ingredients, stashed away in your pantry for this Paleo Mississippi Roast. I had everything on hand so I experimented here and created this ranch-flavored seasoning to coat my meat with.

Ingredients for ranch seasoning:

Directions for ranch seasoning:

Simply mix all of these ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside. You will rub this completely on your roast. You likely will not need all of it but at least half and the other half can be reserved for a future use. Keep reading to see how I used the rest of my seasoning.

Paleo Mississippi Pot Roast recipe

This recipe will feed 4-5 people if you go with a 2 1/2 lb roast like I did. If you need to feed more, simply purchase a larger roast.

Ingredients for roast:

  • You will need a good sized chuck roast or any other roast of your choosing. I used a 2 1/2 pound chuck roast
  • Homemade ranch seasoning (recipe above)
  • Pepperoncinis (as many as your heart desires)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 5 tablespoons ghee – (2 tablespoons for browning meat and 3 tablespoons to top the roast with)

Directions for roast:

  1. Rub your roast with the ranch seasoning that you created.
  2. Warm 2 tablespoons of ghee in a large skillet or frying pan. When the pan is warm and ghee is melted place your roast in there and brown on all sides.
  3. Once meat is browned place in slow-cooker.
  4. Add two tablespoons of minced garlic
  5. Add one cup of beef broth to slow-cooker.
  6. Top meat with 3 tablespoons of ghee. It will melt down on the meat and infuse it with flavor and juiciness.
  7. Top the roast with pepperoncinis. I ended up using half a jar.
  8. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  9. Remove meat from slow-cooker and place on platter to slice and serve.
  10. Eat and enjoy! Serve with your favorite side-dish or use my suggestion below for roasted ranch potatoes.

Looking for a way to use up that ranch seasoning that you created?

I had quite a bit of ranch seasoning leftover so what I did was tossed some potatoes with some extra virgin olive oil and coated them with the ranch seasoning. I roasted these potato halves in the oven at 400-degrees for approximately 25-30 minutes and they came out fork-tender. This potato medley is the perfect accompaniment to your Mississippi Pot Roast. If you want to keep your meal totally paleo be sure to use roasted sweet potatoes since those fall within paleo guidelines. In the photo below, I used one small bag of multi-colored mini potatoes and fingerlings. I sliced them all down the middle for quicker roasting.

My mother and step-dad stopped over for dinner last night and this was what I served. We sure polished this meal off. There was nothing left and we all joined the Clean Plate Club. This is the type of dinner that I love to serve to guests of my home. It is great comfort food and it is a filling dish. We all had to leave some room for dessert though! I created a vegan matcha and chocolate cheesecake and that was our dessert. I am currently working on a recipe post for that and hope to post it soon.

Does this look like a recipe that your family would enjoy? If you do decide to make this dish let me know how you like it. Leave me a comment and let me know.

The fall weather is approaching and that means meals like pot roasts and soups will be in full swing in my kitchen. For cool weather meals, I also like to bust out my slow-cooker. The slow-cooker is a perfect tool to use for when you want a meal with minimal effort. It is great for busy workdays or school days. All you need to do is a little prep, set it, and forget it. Today I will share with you how I made my paleo pot roast slow-cooker and the recipe for it.

The meat and veggies are the stars of the show. Simple ingredients and effortless steps to obtain an incredible meal.

This was our first time trying out parsnips. I wanted to be adventurous with this roast and add something new to it so we went with that. My daughter, Chloe, actually loved them and my husband was on the fence about it (he is somewhat picky). I really enjoyed them and would continue to use them in my roast recipe. I would actually probably add another one or two next time I make pot roast with them.
