Helpful hints

  • Soaking potatoes greatly reduces potassium content.
  • *As an alternative to soaking potatoes, cut into small pieces and boil in a large pot of water. Drain; stir potatoes into meat juices or top with gravy when serving brisket. This boiling method has been shown to reduce potassium similar to leaching if the potatoes are cut into small pieces.
  • Brisket may be replaced with any other pot roast.
  • 1 medium onion yields 1 cup chopped onion.
  • To make gravy with meat juices, add 2 tablespoons flour to 1/4-cup cold water.  Stir into slow cooker after removing meat and vegetables. Stir until gravy thickens.
  • 2-1/2 pounds raw brisket yields 2 pounds cooked brisket.
  • Recipe yields 4 cups broth.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Low Potassium Potatoes

This was delish. I skipped the bouillon to lower the sodium (and skip the MSG) and soaked the potatoes. The flavor from the beef really adds to the dish and you really don't miss the salt. I will definitely make this again.

Wow, what a treat! Did not do the bouillion or potatoes to save on sodium & potassium counts.Didn't miss them. Used a little more garlic.
