Let the slow cooker do all the work for this paleo Garlic Bacon Pot Roast. Just 4 ingredients make this a deliciously savory, healthy comfort meal.
Do you have birthday dinners at your house? Birthday celebrations always revolve around food at our house. Wait. Who am I kidding. Everything revolves around food at our house. We are really working to change that mindset, which is really hard to do when you’re a food blogger.
We’re trying to focus more on the “healthy” part of our “Healthy with a little bit of happy”. Celebrations shouldn’t always involve food, but when the food you want to celebrate actually fits into a paleo diet, this is cause for a huge celebration.
With that intro you’d think that we were celebrating a birthday this week in our house. Nope. We’re not. But slow cooker roast beef always remind me of my birthday because it’s when I was younger it was my choice for a birthday meal every year. Tender roast beef that falls apart when you pick it up with a fork, a side of creamy mashed potatoes and green beans. That is a comfort meal.
Although I’m happy with just throwing a roast into the slow cooker and eating it plain, I decided to dress up this pot roast by adding bacon and garlic. I wanted to be sure to keep it paleo-friendly so I kept it dressed up simply with bacon, garlic, beef stock and the roast, of course.
We have company often at our house. When we have guests, I want to fix something delicious, but I also want to not completely blow our healthy “clean” eating. This Garlic Bacon Pot Roast is the perfect solution. Serve it with a side of sweet potatoes and green beans.
Your guests will never know they’re eating a paleo dinner. And you’ll be happy you stuck to your diet!
