Coffee Roasted Chuck Roast

chuck roast recipes

One of the most common questions I receive is how to eat paleo on a budget? The truth is, when starting out it can be overwhelming with all of the changes and new shopping requirements. The best tip I can give, transition in phases and don’t think you have to change it all overnight. Another tip is to learn how to make more economical cuts of meat taste delicious. That is where this I can help with this chuck roast recipe.

Chuck Roast Recipes

When I started eating paleo, I was working 80 hours a week and had very little time to cook. Recipes using a crockpot that required little to no effort were my favorite. Here are a few of my other favorites:

One of the reasons I love the chuck roast so much is that it contains a lot of connective tissue, including collagen, which partially melts during cooking. That collagen greatly enhances the richness of the meal as well as health benefits.

Leave me a comment letting me know your favorite chuck roast recipe. I would love to try a few new ones.

  1. hi! Thank you for all the delicious recipes!
    I have very little experience choosing meat cuts, so I have no idea what to buY when it comes to choosing your Roast, Any suggestions you can give me so I can go to the store and ask for it??
    Thank you!!

  2. Hi- I want to make this today but I don’t do crockpots (I think I’m the only person who ruins crockpot meals)! Any recommendations for the temperature I should cook it at in my oven? I’ll stick it in my dutch oven instead. Thanks :)

    1. I have not tested it so I really don’t know. The temperature of the crockpot on low is 200 so after some research it says your oven will be on 350 and the food would require anywhere from 1-3 hours.

  3. Do you think this would be good with a bison roast? I already have the bison and I’m trying to come up with a recipe that will please my non-paleo dad.

      1. Does it taste a lot like coffee? My husband doesn’t like coffee. Haha. Why am I considering this recipe? Probably because it sounds good to ME.

          1. I think I will, thanks. I will definitely try this coffee recipe sometime, though. I use your recipes all the time.

  4. Thanks so much–I just sent her an e-mail.
    Again, thanks for the guidance and the great recipes–keep up the good work!
    :)

  5. Thanks so much for your quick response! I definitely want to try this recipe out soon. :)
    I just hit up Whole Foods and picked up a nice (grass-fed, of course) roast to make your Bacon Crock Pot Roast this weekend.

  6. Hey George, this roast looks delicious, but I'm not a big fan of mushrooms…is there another veggie that you think would work well with this recipe? Thanks in advance!
