If you’re like me you know the cuts of beef about as well as you know all the names of the islands in the Philippines. Off the top of my head I can’t tell you where this cut of meat comes from…but I’m gonna guess the bottom. ;)
I currently have about 8 different types of protein in my freezer, waiting to become breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Meat Of It All
This Paleo Bottom Round Roast recipe came out fantastic. Sweet potatoes, when roasted, really bring out their sweetness. They will melt in your mouth and truly taste like candy.
If you have a little extra time to make some gravy, that might be the only thing missing from this meal. I used the pan juices to drizzle over the top when served. If I make this again, I may increase the amount of beef broth so there would be more left in the end, but this time around I simply ran out of time.
Whether you have the extra gravy or not though, this will make a great meal for two, and provide leftovers for another meal.
The fresh sage gave some extra special flavor to the meat and potatoes. If you don’t have sage, try another herb. It will, of course, change the flavor but I’m a fan of using the resources you have available.
Lift big, eat big!
With Jeff focussed on bulking up I’ve been purchasing some larger cuts of meat.
This was the first time I ordered a grass-fed bottom round roast, and if you didn’t know, it does in fact come from the “round” :)
I really liked the way this diagram was created so I had to share.
