Sweet and Spicy Braised Beef

I've looked through some of these recipes for roasts in the crockpot and I'm finding the potassium is very high. This one shows 564 mg. This is more then half of my entire daily allowance (1000 mg). I've got a chuck roast I'd like to cook in the crock pot, but it seems impossible to reduce potassium. I've had hyperkalemia and I never want to repeat that. If I drop the potatoes will that reduce the potassium much? Any other suggestions? Dietitian comment: This particular recipe does not include potatoes, but in other recipes if you omit them the potassium is lower. For this recipe you could replace the apple juice with a combination of water and low sodium broth that DOES NOT contain potassium chloride. You could also reduce the portion size. In general each ounce of cooked meat contains approximately 100 mg potassium.

This was delicious! My daughter and grandson loved it. I served it with tortillas and chopped lettuce (on mine), coleslaw and beans for them. Will definitely cook this again!
