With its attention to lean proteins and fresh produce, you don’t have to be on the full Paleo plan to reap the diet's rewards. Time to get cooking.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 lb beef chuck
  • Salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lard
  • ⅔ cup beef broth, divided
  • 2 bay leaves

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Sprinkle roast lightly all over with salt, if using. In a small bowl, mix together pepper, allspice, and nutmeg. Sprinkle over both sides of roast and rub in well. Stab it all over with a fork.
  2. Core tomatoes, cut in chunks, and put in food processor. Peel onion and cut it in chunks; throw in food processor with tomatoes. Pulse until chopped. Now add olive oil, lemon juice, and vinegar. Run the processor till you’ve got a thin paste.
  3. Put roast in a big zipper-lock bag and pour in mixture from food processor. Seal bag, pressing out air as you go. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
  4. Pull out roast; drain and reserve marinade. In a Dutch oven, over medium-high heat, melt lard and sear roast on both sides.
  5. Now add marinade, beef broth, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cover and let cook for a good 2 ½ to 3 hours, until the meat is fork-tender.
  6. Remove roast to a platter and keep warm. Now turn up heat and reduce juices in pot until they’re starting to thicken up. Pour sauce into gravy boat and serve with pot roast.
