Tasty Tuesday: Beef Dip Sandwiches

July 04, 2017, by Christy

First, happy Fourth of July to all the Americans busy celebrating today. 

Second, I have a confession to make.  This is a repost from my blog 5 years ago.  I had every intention of making a different recipe over the weekend but in the end that didn't happen.  You see, here in Canada we were busy celebrating Canada's 150th birthday which means an extra busy long weekend.  Lots of socializing, lots of beverages and not much cooking.

So instead... I frantically searched my blog for a recipe that I could ummm 'borrow' since I had no new material for today's post.  What I learned on my search?  I've blogged a lot more about food than I would have expected.  Also, I still eat the same food that I ate 5 years ago.

The  recipe I chose in the end is the slow cooker beef dip.

We are a year round slow cooker family.  It is great for days that you are away all day and don't want to be tempted to eat out at the end of the day.  I always get pressure from my husband to eat out if we don't already have a plan.  I think there is a misconception that slow cookers are only for the winter or when the weather is cold.  I strongly disagree, some recipes are just to good to only eat half the year.

Before I got my slow cooker, I never cooked roasts.  Ever.  We did beef dips with deli meat in the oven.  I didn't know what I was missing out on.

The best thing is that this recipe is so easy.  Like the easiest recipe you could ever imaging.

1 pkg of brown gravy
1 pkg of ranch dressing
1 pkg of Italian dressing
1 beef roast

Mix the packages with 4 cup of water and pour over roast.  Cook on low for 8 hours or as long as you want.  The longer you cook it the better it will shred. 

It takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and then you walk away for the day.  

About 30 minutes before you want to eat, remove the roast from the slow cooker and tear it apart with 2 forks.  Put the beef shreds back in the slow cooker to simmer for the last 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes.  Put the beef on a bun, top with some cheese, and grab a bowl of au jus to dip your sandwich in.   Add some veggies as a side dish and enjoy!

This is one of my go to recipes on days where we are going to be out all day and we want to eat a home cooked meal.  I've served this to guests on more than one occasion and no one has ever complained.  Easy, tasty, and did I say easy?  If you haven't already tried cooking a roast this way I highly recommend you try!
