Sunday: French Dip Sandwiches

Wow, this week has been busy, so sorry I'm late on these posts. I have been on top of things enough to take pictures of most of my meals, even though I'm just getting around to posting them. Anyway, I'm going to start with Sunday since it is one of my all-time favorite meals. It's a crock-pot meal so it's super easy, and it's absolutely delicious. Here are the ingredients:

1 Roast (about 3 lbs, somewhat fatty to enhance the flavor)
3 c water
3 c beef broth (I just use bullion)
2 pkg Au Jus sauce
2 pkg Italian Dressing

I usually start cooking the roast between 8-9 in the morning, since we have 9:00 church. I put a frozen roast in the crockpot, and add all of the ingredients at once. I let it cook on low all day, and we eat about 5. In the last hour, I shred the meat (it basically just falls apart at this point) so that it can soak up the juices.

This picture was taken after we had already eaten, but it gives you the idea....

When you're ready, serve it on rolls (I use Hoagie Rolls) with swiss cheese, and sauteed onions and green peppers if you wish. I also like to have a little bowl with some juice in it for dipping. Serve it with a side of fruit or veggies (or both) and presto! you have an awesome meal. :)

Italian Dressing ... like those little packets? Dry, right?
