Have you been craving a delicious pot roast? Have you made one in the past that just didn't come out right? I mean it tasted good but it didn't have that “I can cut it with a spoon” fall apart texture we all love? Barrett Pastor has created a recipe that will help you to get it right every single time.
Easy Spoon Roast
BLUE PLAN: 1 Point for 1 oz
GREEN PLAN: 1 Point for 1 oz
PURPLE PLAN: 1 Point for 1 oz
The best roast is slow-cooked and marinated. I believe Barrett has perfected her recipe and shared it with all of us so we can create mouth-watering spoon roasts every single time we make them. No matter what plan you are on this low point meal is sure to satisfy.
What is Spoon Roast?
Spoon roast is a tenderloin cut of beef that you can cut with a spoon once it is prepared properly. It is low in points and full of protein, to help you feel full longer. Make sure you trim it or have it trimmed at the butcher so you are not cooking excess fat.
