Paleo Pot Roast

Nothing says "stormy day dinner" like a good crock pot meal! And nothing says "cozy and hearty" like a pot roast with root vegetables! The down-side is losing power in the middle of the cooking time! But, it was the chance I took, and it still worked out. Power came back on... and we just ate a little later than planned. On the UP side, there are plenty of lovely leftovers! Hope you enjoy!

2.5 - 3 lbs. beef cross rib roast, boneless, trimmed of fat (as best you can... it's a pretty marbled meat)
1/2 C red wine
1 onion, slice in this chunks
1 golden beet, peeled & chopped in big chunks
1 turnip, peeled & chopped in big chunks
2-3 small parsnips, pealed and chopped
1 C peeled baby carrots, left whole
1 small sweet potato, peeled and chopped in large chunks
2 stalks celery, chopped
ground black pepper
about 5-6 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole

Trim the fat from pot roast, as best you can. Cut slits in the beef and stuff with cloves of garlic. Sprinkle roast with black pepper, put in crock pot, and surround with vegetables. Pour red wind over the top. Cover and cook on high for about 4 hours! I just love the flavor of these root vegetables with a hearty beef in the middle of winter, on a stormy day! I hope you are all staying warm and cozy and eating well! Enjoy! :-)
