One of the easiest ways for us to get back, is to cut out eating out & take out & drive through. We love it, I hate to admit & at the end of a long work day, it's easier than cooking.
Anywho I am participating in the Eat In Challenge with Networking Witches. Who, by the way, are giving away a $25 Amazon gift card.
So today we did roast beef...in the slow cooker.
(not my photo...from foodpeoplewant.com)
Here is what I did.
Roast Beef...mine was probably about 5lbs. (we feed 6 with it...it stretched, I have no idea how! LOL)
I do not, I repeat, I do not brown my roast before putting it in the slow cooker.
I am lazy.
Yes, it's true.
So I place the roast in the slow cooker (which is lined with those Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners...best invention EVER!), then I fork stabbed it to death. I then season with S&P and about 1TBS of minced garlic.
I added a bit of water, probably about 1/2 inch in depth. It's always good to have a lil liquid in with what you are cooking. Plus it helps make an awesome aujous!
When I get home from work it was done. It takes about 6-8 hours in the slow cooker. My husband added some cut up potatoes when he turned it on.
We served the roast beef, potatoes, mac & cheese & mixed veggies.
It was a hit...sans the lima beans in the mix veggies...no one likes them.
Tell me what did you make for dinner tonight?
Are you participating in any sort of challenge?
Let me know.
