I LOVE my crockpot! It just makes my day to prep all of my dinner in the morning and have it ready to go at dinnertime!
A few years ago I borrowed a cookbook from my Grammy and found a yummy (and super easy) recipe for a French Dip sandwich that my whole family loves! I actually made it for a baby shower once too!
The super easy recipe calls for a 2-3 lb chuck roast (trimmed) - but London Broil was on sale CHEAP this week, so I tried that and it worked wonderfully (in fact, Craig liked it even more because it was leaner).
Add a can of beef broth, a can of beef consume (my regular grocery store carries this, but I have not been able to find it at Super-Walmart), and a can of onion soup. You can stir in a tsp of beef bouillon if you'd like (I didn't have any today, so we did and it was still yummy!).
Just let that cook away (8 hrs on low -or- 4 hrs on high). Shred the beef using 2 forks - serve on nice, crusty hoagie rolls (you can add some cheese too!) and dip in the juice! It's so yummy!
I choose to use the low sodium soups and broth.
We had some leftover beef and "juice" so I threw it all back in the crockpot and made some soup! I've never made soup before, so I hope it tastes as yummy as it looks. I tossed in more broth, some potatoes, carrots, celery, peas and a can of tomato paste. Should make a great lunch tomorrow!
