Try this Orange Beef Roast and Potato slow cook recipe for your next meal.
Materials and Ingredients:
- 1 slow cooker or Insta-Pot on slow cook that fits your roast. If your roast is too big, cut it in half.
- 1/2 cup of organic coconut oil. (You can use any oil you choose.)
- 1 onion sliced to put at the bottom of the slow cooker. This adds flavor and keeps the roast from sitting on the bottom of the pot.
- 1 small easy to peel organic orange/tangerine
- 1 stalk of celery or Organic Celery Seed
- 1 beef roast is about 3 pounds. We use 100% grass fed beef.

- Wash organic orange/tangerine
- Peel and rip the rind into bits.
- Separate the orange into individual pieces
- Cut up celery into small bits

I like to check the meat at 4 hours for tenderness. Sometimes the meat takes faster to cook or slower depending on the size.
And I’ve cooked the above recipe with a 4 pound frozen roast. It took about 8 hours on low and tasted delicious. I added cut up potato chunks when there were 2 hours remaining to cook.
Creating meals with whole foods is good for the belly, mind, and soul.
