So I found this new recipe blog, Civilized Caveman Cooking, and they have some really awesome stuff going on over there. Last night I tried a roast recipe from them and it was so good! Somehow mine did not quite turn out like a roast per say, but it ended up making a dang good chili. So here goes…

Ingredients
  • Chuck roast
  • 24 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
Instructions
  1. Line the bottom of your crock pot with your mirepoix (onions, carrots, celery)
  2. Place your roast on top of your vegetables
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix your tomato sauce, red wine, garlic, and spices in a bowl and mix well
  4. Pour your sauce over your meat
  5. Cover your crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours
  • After the meat was done cooking which thankfully was just in time for me to get home from a brutal CrossFit WOD, I shredded the meat and mixed it all around with the tomato sauce, onions and carrots. Too exhausted to make a green veggie to serve on the side of this tasty little dish, I realized that the roast mixture was a perfect chili consistency. So, I heaped a giant pile into a bowl and added some extra sauce and a dash (just a tiny, sinful little dash) of cheddar cheese on top. Viola! Dinner is served ;0
