This was excellent. I did sub kale for turnip greens, carrots for parsnips, & chopped vidalia onion (sauteed after browning the beef, add tomato paste in, then deglaze) for the cipollini. The only problem I had with the recipe the first time was fitting everything into my slow cooker. 2nd time around I decreased the greens & nestled the meat down into the veggies instead of laying them on top. Hopefully this will also take care of the problem that the meat didn't cook in the lovely sauce the first time & wasn't as flavorful as the veggies turned out. A definite repeat in my house.
Beef Pot Roast with Turnip Greens
This pot roast calls for veggies and herbs you can find at your local famers market. If you can't cipollini onions, substitute pearl onions. Other large full-flavored greens like mustard greens or kale will work, as well.
