    Sliced onion on the bottom of the pan. Spice rub of your choice. Tomatos, crushed, canned, pureed, sliced, whatever. Garlic? Broth, half a cup?

    Good luck.

    Oooo, a chuck roast? You can make AWESOME pulled beef with a chuck roast. Put this in a crock pot:

    Chuck roast (sear/brown it first in some fat/oil first if you have the time)
    One onion, chopped
    A bunch of garlic
    Chopped jalapenos or hot sauce, if you like it spicy (I do!)
    Salt/pepper to taste
    Enough water or beef broth to cover it up about halfway

    Let it cook on low for 8 or 10 or even 12 hours. It will just fall apart with a fork. Makes fantastic leftovers.

    I vote for beef broth. Maybe mix in some coconut milk at the end? I think that would go with sweet potatoes really well.

    Just remembered you said OVEN. You can do the same in an oven ... just keep it covered and keep the temp down to 200-250.

    I toss tomatoes in during the last few hours, in a crock pot at least. It's not fully paleo, but from time to time I'll toss in a smoked porter or two along with just water. It makes for some moist meat. I also toss parsnips in mine as well. I usually go for parsnips, onions, squash and celery. I take the roast at room temperature, and rub it in sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Then, I sear the edges on a skillet with grassfed butter before it goes into the crockpot.

    I've never had a dry roast (at least in a crockpot) that was skillet seared and cooked in either beer or hard cider. I second the cider idea, at least a pure hard cider (stuff like Woodchucks has some preservatives in it). Wine might work too, not sure on what kind of flavors you might get from that. I do my london broils' in a 24 hour wine marinade that everyone loves. The beer "broth" thing I guess technically isn't paleo. A lot of those lectins are already broken down during fermentation, but I'm not sure if they get broken down further cooked for 8-12 hours. I have not had issues with it, but I don't eat a lot of roast so that may be an idea to completely disregard. YMMV.
