Tender Slow Cooker Cross Rib Beef Roast (SCD, GAPS, Paleo)

As the weather gets colder I start to crave more comfort type foods like roasts, casseroles and warm fruit crisps. This roast recipe is super easy to make and will last for a few meals which is always nice.

In other news I have finished all of my CARMS interviews which is a nice relief. Now I just have to rank and wait... I hate waiting. I wish I knew now! Those who know me know that patience is definitely not my virtue!

Does everyone have plans for Thanksgiving? Hopefully they include eating a lot of delicious food. I picked up my organic, soy free turkey last night which I am pretty excited to try (just don't ask me how much it cost... it was ridiculous!)

Ok but enough of my rambling. Time for a recipe!

Tender Slow Cooker Cross Rib Roast (SCD, GAPS, Paleo, Beef) 


1 grass-fed beef cross rib roast
6-8 cups bone broth (enough to cover your roast when it is in the slow cooker)
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 large onion
2 cups chopped carrots
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 TBSP Italian Seasoning 


1. Chop your carrots and onions
2. Place roast in slow cooker and add rest of ingredients (you want enough liquid so that the roast is covered)
3. Cook on high for 5 hours and then turn down to low and cook for another 3-4 hours
4. Stir ingredients and turn roast every once in a while during the course of cooking
5. Remove from slow cooker and enjoy! Eat with the carrots and onions you cooked or add another vegetable of your choice (I also suggest beans or squash)


  1. Looks great Erin. I am trying out new recipes now that I started P90x (Day 41). My blog is keeping me going.
    Will give this one a try.

  2. Is cross rib roast different from other beef roast? Looks delic!

  3. Every roast is a little bit different. The cross rib seems to take longer to cook than other roasts I have tried. If you are using a different kind you would need to adjust the cooking times

  4. Can you substitute white wine instead of red for this recipe?

    1. Hi Acacia! Yes you should be able to use white wine instead… it just won't have quite as much flavour as the red does.
