While perusing all the fantastic crafts, parties and recipes over at Skip to My Lou's Made by You Monday, I saw this recipe for Slow Cooker Beef Dip Sandwiches. Let me set the scene...it was 9:45 on a Monday night. My usual bedtime is 10pm. But oh goodness, those sandwiches looked so yummy! Tuesday is one of my days to take lunch to the Grands, so I decided to make these. Right then. Yep, that's how the ride on the insanity wagon goes.
I used the recipe more as a guideline, since I didn't have everything it called for and they still came out really good. (Crazy photos...flash, no flash, I still can't take a good picture!!)
Beef Dip Sandwiches
4-lb. beef roast
2 onions, thinly sliced
26 oz. carton of beef stock
1 tsp. dried thyme
2 cloves minced garlic
Freshly ground black pepper
Sea salt or Seasoned salt (I used a bit of both)
Green bell pepper, thinly sliced (As you can see in the photo, mine are too thick.)
Sandwich buns or sub rolls
*Since I decided to do these at the last minute, I put my frozen roast directly into the slowcooker and let it cook all night. It cooked from 10pm-8am on low, then 8am-11:30am on high. The meat was oh-so-tender and delicious!!!
