Make this delicious chuck roast recipe in your slow cooker/crock pot. We used 100% grass-fed beef so it takes less time to cook.
When it comes to food, I try not to be, but I tend to be a food snob. I am willing to pay extra money for food for it to taste a lot different and a lot better than other options. In fact, right now I drive 20 minutes to a grocery store because I like the produce and meat there, despite there being a grocery store right down the street from my house.
I was able to get in touch with a local company who provides 100% grass-fed beef locally. I was a little worried it wouldn’t be worth the cost but you know what? It totally is. It’s unlike meat I’ve ever tasted before. And although I’m not too concerned about where my meat comes from (mostly because I don’t want to know), it really does bring me some peace of mind knowing that these cows that I’m eating were allowed to graze on grass and are not stuck in a cage. It did, however, make me feel a little bad on our most recent vacation as we were driving past a lot of pastures full of cows.
Anyway, not important. The important thing is this recipe. I had a good idea of what I was going to put into it but I was stressed out that day about getting my family up and ready for the day and out the door for church. So right before walking out the door, I threw everything into my crock pot and then walked out the door. While I was sitting in church, I was thinking about the recipe and thought it odd with how much tomato paste I put into my recipe but it was too late. I had made the sauce and it was in the crock pot cooking away. As soon as I got home, I went into the kitchen to look at the recipe and sure enough, I had put in 6 times the amount of tomato sauce than what was called for. Oops. But it actually tasted decent so I’m going to share the recipe with you anyway, mistake and all.
