Today we're going to explore the delicious world of slow-cooked bison and coffee roast. If you're following a paleo or keto diet, you know that finding flavorful and satisfying recipes can be a challenge. But fear not, because I have a recipe that will make your taste buds sing!
Bison and Coffee Roast
One of the best things about bison is that it's lean and packed with protein, making it a great addition to any paleo menu. Plus, it's a sustainable choice that's lower in fat and calories than beef, but still offers that hearty, meaty flavor we all crave. When you slow-cook a bison and coffee roast, you're able to really let those flavors develop and infuse the meat with all sorts of deliciousness.
But why slow-cook? Well, there are a few reasons. For one, it allows the meat to cook low and slow, which breaks down the tougher fibers and makes it incredibly tender. Plus, it gives all the flavors time to meld together and create a rich, savory taste. And let's be real, who doesn't love coming home to a house that smells like a cozy, delicious meal?
So there you have it, folks: a Crock-Pot bison and coffee roast that's paleo and keto-friendly, sustainable, and delicious. What's not to love? Serve this with a side of paleo mashed potatoes and you'll have a comfort food meal that everyone will beg you to make!
Now, let's talk about the secret ingredient: coffee! That's right, adding coffee to your bison roast might seem unusual, but trust me, it's a game-changer. Not only does it add a depth of flavor and richness to the meat, but it also helps to tenderize it even more.

How to Make Crockpot Bison and Coffee Roast
In a large skillet, over medium heat, melt the cooking fat. Brown the bison roast on all sides.
Remove the roast from the skillet, and add in the green onions, mushrooms, and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring regularly. Then, add the coffee, chili powder, salt, and black pepper.
Stir and simmer, scraping the cooked bits of food off the bottom of the skillet. Bring this to a boil, then pour the liquid into your slow cooker.
Add the browned bison roast to the liquid in the slow cooker, seal with a lid, and let cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or until the meat is fork-tender.

- Bison should be cooked to a minimum of 145°F internally for safety. However, for a fork-tender roast, as you want with this recipe, you will be cooking to 160 °F or higher.
- If you do not have a full 8 hours to cook the roast, you can cook on high heat setting for 4 to 5 hours instead. A slow longer cook time will keep the meat moist and tender, but you can get similar results with a higher cooking heat and shorter time.
