I have been on a huge pork kick for this weekend so this time I am using beef as my main protein but of course stuffing it with BACON, and we all love bacon so we shall see how it goes.  Hope you enjoy.

Total time
Serves: 5
  1. Using a thin knife create about 12 holes deep into the meat about 1/2 inch wide, you need to be able to fit some garlic and bacon in the hole
  2. Place bacon and garlic in each hole and set aside
  3. In a small mixing bowl, mix your sea salt, paprika, parsley, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, extra virgin olive oil, and red wine vinegar and mix well
  4. Rub your spice mixture all over both sides of your roast
  5. Line the bottom of your crock pot with your sliced onions and whatever left over pieces of bacon you have
  6. Place your roast on top and cook on Low for 7-10 hours. Remember chuck roasts are tougher cuts of meat so the longer it cooks the better
  7. Enjoy

  1. This recipe came up when I Googled pot roast with bacon. I’m not even on the Paleo diet, but man, this recipe is fantastic. Amazing flavor.

    I made mine in my Le Creuset dutch oven. Set oven temp at 250 degrees and braised almost five hours.

  2. Samantha Anderson says:

    Tried this over the weekend – just incredible! Amazing flavor and was so easy to do. Keeping this one! (I served mine with roasted radishes and it makes it a “meat and potatoes” type of meal without the potatoes!) Thanks!

  3. Would a top or round roast work? That is what I have thawed out.

  4. Do you think a top/bottom round roast would work well for this? It is what I have thawed out.

  5. color me slow and I aplogize but can someone tell me what EVOO is? It may be right under my nose and I don’t know it, but I have only stumbled on this and started it about a week ago? Thank you and sorry in advance.

  6. This recipe was delicious!! I did sear in coconut oil first after coating with coconut flour and the seasonings. My husband loved it too. Got the spiral slicer and enjoyed cucumber noodles w/ lemon, garlic and fresh dill. The banana bread recipe is delightful. After 1 week I’ve lost 4# and feel so much better. Thanks George for the terrific cookbook and this blog site. Keep doing what you’re doing as I am positive you have made a real difference for many people not just me. Thanks again and remember to vote for George.

  7. Sorry if this has been addressed already… I looked through the comments and didn’t notice it. How much olive oil is it? 1/4 what… cup, I’m guessing, but I don’t want to throw in 1/4 cup if its supposed to be something tiny like 1/4 teaspoon! Thanks!!

  8. Just made this last week. This was the best chuck roast made in a crock pot ever! Looking forward to trying more of your recipes! Thanks!

  9. Hello! I am making this right now and just wondering if my bacon should be cooked ahead of time or not? Thanks!

  10. This was incredible, thank you for sharing!

  11. Made this today and it was AWESOME!! Thanks so much!

  12. This recipe is awesome with kale! Makes it a real 1-pot meal. Put in the onions and then pack the slow cooker full with a whole mess of kale. Top it with the beef. The kale adds some moisture/liquid, if you’re worried about it being dry. Once its cooked, shred the beef, pour some of that tasty juices over it, and smother it with all that kale and onions. So. Good. Thanks so much for the recipe!

    I plan to make this on Monday night…it doesn’t require any water or broth?!?!

  14. Lori I would not try it again in the same crock pot. The temperature could be off which would over cook it. If you do it again in the same pot, your going to have to add some beef stock to ensure it doesn't dry out

  15. Lori Michel says:

    yup, low for 9hours It's my grandmothers crockpot so maybe the temp was off. Definitely have to try again.

  16. Lori, how long and what temperature did you cook it at? If you followed the recipe there is a very good chance that the temperature in your crock pot is way off. You did cook it on low right?

  17. Lori Michel says:

    HELP!!! what did I do wrong? Mine came out dry :( and I ONLY used the best meat from MM livestock

  18. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

  19. Anonymous says:

    Can someone tell me what EVOO is. I have never heard of it in my area.

  20. This roast was absolutely awesome–I just finished up the last of it for dinner today. :) Talk about a cost-effective and delicious paleo recipe!

  21. Thanks for coming to tell me Torrey, so glad I could help, keep it up

    I know I keep saying it, but thank you so much for posting such easy and awesome recipes–you totally rock, George!
