Tip: After enjoying your slow cooker roast beef, use the leftover meat to make this delicious Paleo Beef & Veggie Soup with Sweet Potato.  In fact, for my family of five, I often prepare two roasts in order to have plenty of leftovers for soup.

Feel free to use your favorite seasoning salt.  My top picks include two simple homemade seasoning blends:

  1. Homemade Herbamare
  2. Easy Seasoning Salt with Essential Oils

And don’t skip the searing step!  I’ve found this to be key for tender meat bursting with flavor.

A deliciously simple way to slow cook a beef roast. Tip: After enjoying your roast, use the leftover meat to make this delicious Paleo Beef & Veggie Soup with Sweet Potato.


  • 12 TB coconut oil
  • 1 large roast (about 4 lbs)
  • 1/2 c red wine

  3. Place the roast in a slow cooker.
  4. Pour about ½ cup red wine over the meat.

  6. Sprinkle with seasoning salt to cover the roast, lifting it a bit to cover the underside.
  7. Add 1-2 cups water or broth.

    We loved it! I was worried that 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar was too much, but it was delicious. Also, I used the instant pot with this recipe. Thanks!
