This Easy Seasoning Salt with Essential Oils was fantastic on a slow cooked roast, and would work well for other meats too. Here’s what I did to prepare the roast…
Slow Cooked Roast with
Essential Oil Seasoning Salt
Tip: After enjoying your roast, use the leftover meat to make this delicious Paleo Beef & Veggie Soup with Sweet Potato.
1. Heat a large skillet (I prefer cast iron) over medium heat and add 1-2 TB coconut oil.
2. Sear a large roast (about 4 lbs) by browning for a few minutes on each side.
3. Place the roast in a slow cooker.
4. Pour about ½ cup red wine over the meat.
5. Pour about ½ cup balsamic vinegar 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.
8. Cook all day on low.
(Optional: rub the roast with the seasoning salt ahead of time. Cover and store in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. Follow the steps above, omitting #6.)
