This DELICIOUS roast is quick and easy to make, and it cooks itself all day while you are at work! Full of flavor and nutrition, this roast is something I will make again, and again! I couldn’t even remove the roast from the crockpot without it falling apart, it was THAT tender! I ended up shredding it and scooping the meat & veggies out together all out at once.
I didn’t end up having any Whole 30 compliant bone broth in my house, and wasn’t about to go BACK outside in the freezing cold to find some, so I mixed my Vital Proteins Beef Bone Broth Collagen (which IS Whole 30 approved) with some water instead, and am I ever happy I did! Packed with collagen and protein, it was the perfect way to add the liquid aspect to cook the veggies and roast with some extra health benefits! I will definitely be subbing these crystals a lot more often when I cook.
