This low-carb slow cooked Italian pot roast is full of flavor that the whole family will love.

I love meals that work for both me and my non low carb family. It just makes life so much easier. This Italian pot roast is one of those kinds of meals. You toss it in the slow cooker first thing in the morning and when it’s dinner time the house smells great and you just need to add side dishes. Mashed cauliflower goes really really good with this, as a matter of fact.

The beef cooks down until you just almost can’t cut it, it just falls apart. Leftovers make incredible sandwiches for the family. You can use them in low-carb wraps or lettuce wraps, too. Just add a little Provolone over the top. Personally, I am not opposed to leaning against the open refrigerator door and picking it out of the storage container with my fingers. You do whatever you want.

Slow cooked Italian pot roast is an easy low carb dinner the whole family will enjoy.

Easy recipes like this are what keeps me going. For example, I am a food writer for a magazine. My assignment this month was pecan pies. I made pecan pies, smelling them, seeing them, even tasting (and spitting) to check flavors. There is no way I could do what I do without something like this to look forward to.

I have herbs growing in a planter outside my kitchen door. If you don’t have fresh, and you can’t find them at the grocery store, you can use dried. You’ll want to use at least a teaspoon of each. Give this a try. I think you’ll like it.
