Hello everyone, every winter here in Maine we all resort to warm comfort foods. Now sometimes that means we are adding more fat, more calories or more sugar. That isnt always a bad thing but over time when it all adds up. This recipe I am sharing with you today is comfort food but its not really terrible for you. You can eat a plate of this, feel full and warm and still fit into your pants the next day. When I first started making my videos I put up a crock pot roast beef recipe, I have been making videos about 3 years now and still today that is most viewed video. Keep in mind I am making this crock pot roast beef a little different using different seasonings and a different method from what I used in the video however the idea is still the same. Plain and simple down home comfort food to keep you warm and full on a cold winter day. I will add in the video at the bottom of the page just in case you want to check that one out too.
2 pounds of chuck pot roast, you can use leaner cuts if you wish
1 cup of reduced sodium beef stock
1 envelope of dried Italian dressing
1 envelope of dried ranch dressing
1 envelope of beef gravy mix
Try to find all reduced sodium if you can
1 tablespoon of ground black pepper
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
2 cups of water
Add all liquid into the crock pot, mix up with a whisk and set aside. All your dried dressings mix into a bowl and coat the roast with the dressings. Make sure to coat the sides of the roast and underneath the roast too. Add in the rest of the seasonings to the liquid in the slow cooker and whisk together. Next add the roast and have your slow cooker set to low for 8 hours. After 8 hours the beef is going to be falling apart and sucked up all those flavors like a sponge. Make some potatoes or rice with some veggies and a salad. Pour the gravy over your meat and dinner is ready.
Thank you for stopping by, take care. Heather
