Southwest Pot Roast

This dish is Atkins Induction friendly.  My favorite way to serve it is with no-fat refried beans topped with melted cheese and a nice guacamole salad atop a bed of shredded lettuce.  Bear in mind that the beans as a side dish are only allowed when you get to the legume rung of OWL.  But they are just divine with this meat.  And it just doesn’t get any easier folks!


1 small chuck roast (about 3 lb.)

1 can MILD Ro-Tel tomatoes & Green Chilies

¼ tsp. garlic powder (or 1 clove fresh, minced)


Place roast in baking pan and cook at 325º for 1 hour.  Sprinkle garlic powder on top (or smear with minced fresh garlic).  Pour Ro-Tel tomatoes evenly over top of roast and continue baking until meat is well done and tender, or to an internal temperature of 170º.
