Tonight's dinner

We had Italian roast beef with mashed potatoes and tossed salad. Boy was it good and so easy to make! Will use the leftovers of the beef for sandwhiches over the weekend.

Italian Roast Beef:

3-4 lb Beef Roast

1 pkg. Good Season's Italian Dressing Mix (2 if large roast)

1 pkg Au Jus mix (2 if doing large roast)

½ cup water

Cook 3-4 lbs roast in the crockpot with 1 package Good Season's Italian dressing mix and ½ cup water. Cook about 8 hrs, until the roast is falling apart.Remove any fat and bones; discard. Shred beef and put back into the crockpot. Mix the Au Jus as directed on package. Add to beef in crockpot. Put the lid back on and turn on high for another 45 min. to 1 hour.


Discard the "broth" before shredding beef and adding Au Jus because it is usually pretty fatty.
