Southwest Chili Beef Roast Slow Cooked in Clay

Southwest Chili Beef Roast Slow Cooked in Clay

Suitable for VitaClay Models VF7700 & VM7900 series ONLY. 

I love cooking roasts in VitaClay. The meat is much cheaper than the steak cuts, it feeds us for days, and itÔÇÖs really moist, juicy, tender and delicious. There really arenÔÇÖt any drawbacks. Except that sometimes it gets old.

So when I saw this recipe for a ÔÇťcowboy roastÔÇŁ I thought it was genius, and so easy to adapt to VitaClay! It incorporates roast, my favorite cuts of meat for all of the above reasons, and it has some new and different flavors, so I donÔÇÖt have to be bored with my roasts or cook them less often!

Now IÔÇÖm thinking IÔÇÖll try to find some more flavors to use with roasts to mix it up even more! Sometimes I even eat roast for breakfast; my Chinese doctor recommended this to me as a way to lose that last stubborn 10 pounds, and it totally worked. I would eat just a little and be really full all morning and the pounds just melted off. Apparently beef is a ÔÇťhotÔÇŁ food that revs up your metabolism all day long.

This southwest-style roast recipe is delicious and goes well with lots of things: mashed potatoes, rice, pasta, or just a side of sourdough dinner rolls. Try it and let us know what you think!
