The grocery store was selling beef for 1.99 a pound. This never happens. So I took advantage of the price and bought a huge chunk of meat on the cheap. Ladies and gentlemen if the store is selling red meat for under $2 a pound buy it up! One thing I have noticed is that because our meals consist of meat and vegetables our grocery bill went up. So I take advantage of any meat sales that I find. Typically you find grocery coupons and sales on non-paleo foods. Your biggest savings are usually on government subsidized food products that are corn and wheat based. So cutting those food calories from your diet will increase the price tag. However, with a little research you can find which store are having a sale on meat and take advantage of the savings. I take big pride on keeping the food bill down by buying what’s in season, and what’s cheap.
This roast has a lot of flavor with minimal work required. It is definitely a cook all day food though, so save it for a busy work day where you can come home to a delicious hot meal. I added veggies at the end to round out the meal. You can add any veggies you like but I’m fond of broccoli with Asian style foods.
Asian Pot Roast
1 large hunk of delicious fatty beef
2 peeled and sliced onions
1/2 a head of garlic peeled and diced
2″ of ginger peeled and diced
2 tbsp of sesame oil
2 tbsp of agave nectar (or honey)
2 tbsp of rice wine vinegar
1 cup of water
Place onions on the bottom of a large pot. Place the beef on top of onions.
Mix together the remaining ingredients, and pour over beef and onions. (I forgot this picture so you’ll just have to imagine it)
Place a lid on the pot and cook low for ~6-8 hours. Put it in before you go to work and it will be done when you get home.
The last 20 minutes I added frozen broccoli, green beans, and zucchini. For the more traditional diet you could definitely eat this over rice. But, It is delicious as is.
