Imagine, dragonflies dance under the sun as it has past its peak, a slight breeze drifts through the trees and brings comfort from a muggy summer day. While the breeze is nice the swing in the shade makes for a better remedy. Kicking off with one foot, you set your pace like a pendulum as the rhythmic flow brings you back to simpler times. Moments like these can bring catharsis as much as clarity, and some days more than others, it’s easier to find that instance for a little break. 

Every day is a new chance to appreciate the moments we have, but for that extra dose of relaxation on the farm, Sunday is our swing day. After a productive week, we take the time to enjoy the company of family and loved ones, to relax, and nourish our minds, body, and spirit for the week ahead. That’s why we would like to share a recipe that will not only bring the family together for a hearty meal but will allow you to set it and forget it with minimal prep, so everyone can bask in the comfort of a lazy Sunday.

Sunday Roast Recipe

Ingredients:

2-4lb Grass Fed Chuck Roast
6 carrots, diced
2 large Vidalia onions, diced
2 garlic cloves, whole
6 Yukon gold potatoes, quartered
1 tsp Hunter Cattle Silver Fox seasoning (or salt and pepper)
1 tsp Hunter Cattle Rooster Crow seasoning (chili, coffee and spice rib)
For an optional kick 2-3 banana peppers
1 cup black coffee
½ cup heavy cream

Take the chuck roast, rinse, and season with Silver Fox and Rooster Crow
seasonings.
Put the roast in a crockpot and add a cup of black coffee – this will help tenderize the meat.
Set the crockpot on high, around 300 degrees, for 4 hours.
Prepare carrots, onions, garlic cloves, potatoes and peppers.
After 4 hours, add vegetables and stir in heavy cream to thicken.
Cook for an additional hour and half.
Keep warm and serve!

Some Grass Fed Beef Benefits
High in Omega 3 content

Significantly less saturated fat compared to grain fed beef

One of the richest sources of healthy fat, conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA. (important
health benefits, including protection against cancer, atherosclerosis, and diabetes)

Higher intake of nutrient beta carotene as compared to grain fed (important for bone,
vision, skin, and normal cell growth), and also higher intake of Vitamin E, known for
providing protection from cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Through their digestive processes, cows are able to convert Vitamin K1 found in grass
to Vitamin K2, a vitamin known to provide protection against atherosclerosis and
cardiovascular disease, as well as osteoporosis. This is an essential vitamin that has
been lacking in modern Western diets but found in grass fed beef!
