Carnivore Chuck Roast In Slow Cooker (2 Ingredients)

May 1, 2023

Carnivore chuck roast recipe with only 2 ingredients, made in the slow cooker. A classic American weeknight dinner, chuck roast is a hearty cut that pulls apart with a tender melt-in-your-mouth texture when made in the slow cooker. This recipe will easily feed your whole family with leftovers to spare for the rest of the week!

We call this the “lazy man Carnivore recipe” because it is a dump-and-go recipe that you will revert to over and over again!

INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS


โญ๏ธ CHUCK ROAST – Also known as blade roast or pot roast. The best substitute for chuck roast is brisket (see our slow cooker beef brisket recipe). Alternatively, you can use a uniformly-shaped, leaner cut of beef such as tri-tip roast, bottom round roast, top round roast, or sirloin roast, but note that they will not produce as tender as a result because those cuts are leaner.

โญ๏ธ SALT – I recommend Redmond’s real salt, an unrefined mineral salt with over 60+ trace minerals.

TIPS AND TRICK FOR SUCCESS


TIP #1: Tie the chuck roast with twine to ensure that it does not fall apart in the slow cooker.

TIP #2: If possible, cook on the lowest setting on the slow cooker. The lower the heat, the more tender it is.

TIP #3: If you are cooking the roast from frozen, add an additional 2-3 hours.

FAQ FOR CARNIVORE CHUCK ROAST


๐Ÿ‘‰ CAN I COOK THE CHUCK ROAST FROM FROZEN?

Absolutely! Account for additional 2-3 hours in the slow cooker if you are cooking directly frozen.

๐Ÿ‘‰ CAN I USE ANY OTHER CUT OF MEAT?

You can substitute chuck roast for beef brisket or a leaner uniform cut of beef such as sirloin roast, tri-tip, or bottom round roast.

๐Ÿ‘‰ HOW DO YOU STORE THE LEFTOVERS?

Store in an air-tight container for up to 5 days. You can also freeze any leftovers for up to 2 months. To reheat, put in the microwave for 4-5 minutes.

๐Ÿ‘‰ CAN I ADD LIQUID TO THE POT?

We have not found it necessary because the meat contains water naturally. However, you can add a cup of beef broth or bone broth just to be safe.
