Crock Pot Recipes

1 envelope homemade dry onion soup mix
1 cup homemade beef broth
1 TBS homemade garlic powder
2 TBS homemade onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
3 to 4 lb chuck roast
Spray a large crock pot with vegetable oil. Add the cream soup, onion soup mix, beef broth, garlic powder, onion powder; whisking until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Place the roast into the crock pot and spoon some of the mixture over the roast. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours (8 hours on low). If the roast is frozen, cook on high for 8 to 10 hours; or until meat falls apart.
Serve over buttered noodles, cooked rice, mashed potatoes or bread slices.
This is another awesome Crock pot Recipe, and we have it frequently. Why? It’s just a dynamite easy slow cooker recipe; easy to prepare and delicious. My secret to My Best Italian Beef Sandwich recipe is my homemade Italian dressing mix; recipe below.
HOT ITALIAN BEEF DRIP SANDWICH RECIPE
2-4 lb beef roast (depending on how many your feeding)
4 TBS Homemade Italian Salad Dressing Mix (recipe below)
Better Than Bouillon Beef Base (sold in a jar by the bouillon cubes)
16 oz jar Pepperoncini peppers
You will need to fill your crock pot 1/2 full of water (this is for the broth) and add 1 heaping tablespoon of the Better Than Bouillon Beef Base to the water. Mix well and taste it. If it is watered down, add some more of the beef base.
Add the entire jar of peppers to the broth and give it a quick stir or two. Carefully add the beef roast and finally measure out two servings of the homemade Italian Salad Dressing mix and sprinkle over the roast and in the broth.
Cook on high for 6-8 hours or until the roast is falling apart. I place the roast on a platter and shred it with a fork and put back in the broth.
Slow Cooker Recipe Ideas
saute green peppers and onions
mozzarella cheese (or your favorite cheese for melting), shredded
Toast the buns if you wish in the oven and dunk half of the bottom bun in the broth. Fill with the shredded meat, add the sauteed peppers and onion and top with cheese. Place under a broiler until the cheese is melted. Is your mouth watering now? It should be. Also fantastic with mashed potatoes.
