So I am doing really well with the “saving money by cooking in” life improvement goal. Yesterday morning I put in my handy crock pot a 3 lb beef roast and by the evening I had tender meat ready to be shredded and put on sandwiches. I found the original recipe online but couldn’t find it again, of course! So here is what I could remember and the results are very tasty!
3 lb beef roast of choice (I believe my was a chuck roast)
1 med. onion thinly sliced
2-3 garlic cloves (I used the pre-chopped kind and saved myself some work)
1 tbsp of each of the following lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes
1 package of dried french onion soup mix
1 can of tomato sauce
1/4 cup of brown sugar
Salt to taste
I just dumped all the seasonings right on top of my roast and mixed up a little. Popped on the lid and cooked it on low for 9 to 11 hrs. Shred and serve on your favorite roll or bun. I used pretzel rolls. So good!
