Low FODMAP Slow Cooker Pot Roast

My BFF Mary gave me a slow cooker and I was psyched. And I knew a Low FODMAP Slow Cooker Pot Roast was gonna be recipe #1!

It was a funny thing…I have maintained a formal Test Kitchen for decades and we have ice cream machines and deep-fryers, several mandolines, 4 KitchenAid mixers of various sizes and colors, multiple blenders, refrigerators and freezers and what have you.

The pots and pans are literally stacked to the ceiling on open shelving. There is even a chocolate tempering machine in storage – but there was no slow cooker. Well, now I know I was missing out. This was a while ago, but I learned late how handy these appliances can be.

This low FODMAP Slow Cooker Pot Roast will get you excited about your appliance, if you aren’t already.

Slow Cooker Love

If you are a slow cooker fan, then this recipe probably won’t come as a surprise. After all, pot roast is a slow cooker classic. But perhaps you have been wondering how to make a low FODMAP version? This is it!

Rich with tomato paste and red wine, tons of flavor from leek and scallion greens sautéed in Shallot Infused Oil, bay leaf, thyme and sweet root vegetables. It comes together very easily and the complex flavors work their magic over time, right in the slow cooker.

Author: Dédé Wilson


  • 2 tablespoons low FODMAP gluten-free all-purpose flour, such as Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 baking Flour
  • 2 tablespoon FODY Steak Spice Blend
  • 3 pounds boneless chuck roast, patted dry, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons FODY Shallot Olive-Infused Oil, divided
  • ½ cup (36 g) leeks, green parts only
  • 1/2 cup (32 g) scallions, green parts only
  • 2 cups (480 ml) red wine
  • 2 cups (480 ml) water
  • 6 ounces (170 g) tomato paste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled, stem end trimmed away and discarded, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 medium parsnips, peeled, stem end trimmed away and discarded, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 6 ounces (170 g) turnips, peeled, stem and root end trimmed away and discarded, cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1 pound (455 g) small red potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
  • Flat leaf parsley


  1. Toss together the flour and Steak seasoning in a large bowl. Place beef in bowl and pat the seasoned flour over every surface; set side.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add the leek and scallion greens and sauté for a few minutes, until softened. Scrape them into the bottom of a large slow cooker.
  3. Heat reserved 2 tablespoons oil in same skillet until hot. Brown floured meat on all sides until it sports a nice crust, about 5 minutes total; remove from heat.
  4. Whisk red wine, water and tomato paste into slow cooker. Add bay leaf, thyme and season with some salt and pepper. Add meat to slow cooker; liquid should just come over the top of the meat. Add a little water if it doesn’t. Tuck the carrots, parsnips and turnips here and there in the liquid.
  5. Cover and set the slow cooker to Low and for 8 hours .
  6. Add potatoes about 2 hours before the pot roast is finished. If you aren’t home or are asleep you have two choices: add them at the beginning (but they risk falling apart) or simply steam them and serve alongside.
  7. After 8 hours, the meat should be fork tender and the vegetables will be cooked through. Taste the sauce and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and additional FODY Steak Spice Blend, if desired. The pot roast is ready to be served with a little chopped parsley on top. It can also be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
