Beef Roast Recipe

With the chilly weather coming, the crockpot is back in action. Here's a yummy beef recipe that I made last week. I hope you like it!

Bella's Crock Pot Italian Beef

3-4 lbs beef roast
8 ounces tomato sauce
2 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
1 teaspoon oregano
1 ounce Good Seasonings Italian salad dressing mix

1. Place beef roast in crock pot.
2. Combine other ingredients in a saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat until it comes to a full boil. Pour over roast.
3. Cover and cook on high 6-8 hours.
4. Shred beef with a fork, and cook 30 more minutes.

This made a ton of meat for just the two of us so we got several meals out of it.

The first night, T was over for dinner and we made beef subs. I sauteed some onions, green pepper and garlic in olive oil and we had the meat, veggies and some cheese on sub rolls. Yummy!

Another night, I heated up some of the shredded meat with a little more tomato sauce and we had it tossed with some bowtie pasta.

This would also be great with some mashed potatoes and salad.

Try it out and let me know what you think and how you served it.
