One thing about traditional pot roast is the potatoes (carbs) and gravy (fat and carbs). Here is an alternative to try. It retains all the flavor of grandma's Sunday pot roast, but prevents me from eating so many carbs. I can get my carbs with a good homemade roll with this meal, and be totally happy!
