Helpful hints

  • To double boil potatoes for potassium removal, cut into small pieces and boil in a large pot of water. Drain; add fresh water and boil for 10 minutes. Drain. Add to slow cooker during last 10 to 15 minutes. 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.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Low Potassium Potatoes
JudyinCA says:

I have not made it yet I will tomorrow but I think I will take a few more things out. I will take out the vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, potatoes, tomatoes sauce and beer. But I would cook cauliflower and mash it as a replacement for potatoes and I would add some pepper to the roast. I am only in stage 3 but because I have swelling I try to not use salt except for a small amount our body needs.

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.
