Sunday, I finally did what I always tell myself to do…cook!! So, I pulled out the iPad and ran through my endless list of recipes to try from Pinterest. I ran across a crock pot rancher’s roast beef. The pin led me to a great and super easy to follow food blog: Heather Likes Food (link to blog & recipe)! I made a few alterations. I used Italian dressing mix instead of ranch just because I already had it on hand. Also, I didn’t add in any sour cream as I unfortunately, must remain lactose free. BORING, I know.
Take a look at the before shot – right when I added the ingredients to the crock pot!
Doesn’t this look great already!
The finished product in the crock pot – wish we had scratch and sniff blogs so you could smell the wonderful smell that filled my whole house.
I couldn’t wait to get it on a plate!! I also tried spaghetti squash – it went horribly a rye. over cooked? I think so. Prepared in an amateur manner? Absolutely. But, back to the delicious beef! After all, it’s what’s for dinner. I mean who am I kidding…I am Texan to the core!
I have eaten two different versions of this meat as leftovers. Today at work, I sliced the meat and ate it cold on a hawaiian roll. Healthy lunch! Jealous co-workers. Then tonight for dinner I tossed several slices of the meat into a skillet and heated them up. I also steamed broccoli. The broiled hot dog bun is a family favorite. For some reason, when you put butter on a bun and broil it for toast it becomes a heavenly treat!
Heather – great recipe! SUPER easy & SUPER tasty! Thanks!!
And a big thank you to the blogosphere for inspiring me to cook! (A huge feat! Just ask my friends!)
