Roast Recipe

I found this recipe for a roast over the summer…and we LOVE it, so I wanted to share it. The actual recipe is called “Italian Beef”…but I have made it with roast veggies before…and it is so good. I usually serve the meat on a nice toasted bun and dip it in the jous….it is delish!

Using a crock pot, take any cut of roast (beef, bison, etc…I used bison last night and it was so yummy)…add in veggies if you want (potatoes, green peppers, onions, carrots, etc)…and then add this:

-2 cups water
-1 small package of dry Italian dressing seasoning
-1.5 teaspoon each- dry basil, dry rosemary, dry oregano, celery flakes
-2 bay leaves
-1 teaspoon: garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder
-red pepper flakes to taste

Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Then pour over roast in a crock pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours until meat is tender.

When I make just the meat, I serve it on a bun. With veggies, it is served in a bowl like a stew with crunchy bread on the side. Any kind of crunchy bread is a must to soak up the yummy juice.

  1. Looks delicious! Thanks!

  2. Britt!!! I made this and had leftovers, so I made enchilada’s. OMG they were the freaking best every.

    Additional items:

    garlic salt
    green enchilada sauce

    I added garlic salt, cumin, and cheddar cheese, and a little of the green sauce to the cold meat. Put the mixture in tortillas (corn is what I had on hand, would have prefered flour) and rolled them up. Placed the enchilada in the foiled lined pan (I had put a little green sauce on the bottom of the foiled lined pan) covered all the enchiladas with the remaining sauce add cheese to the top covered with foil and baked at 375 (unpreheated oven) for 45 minutes, removed the foil and broiled for 5 minutes. (If I was thinking I would have preheated my oven while combining everything, but I was spacy that day!) My whole family LOVED LOVED LOVED them, even my daughter that is super picky loved the enchilda’s. OHH and since the meat was already made it was a simple meal, throwing it together was a snap, baking it is what took so long! Since I foiled my baking dish clean up was a snap too! Thanks again for sharing! BTW not sure of the blog posting etiquette, hope its okay that I added this!
