MMMM… Beef!!

*Forgive the pictures.. i need a new camera*

Alrighty veg-heads.. all you folks that don’t eat meat… LEAVE NOW…

Dinner tonight turned out yummy!

I had some leftover roast beef (a chuck roast to be specific) and made *french* dips out of it.

Like Buttah yo... BUTTAH

To make the roast, google it… seriously… Personally I cooked mine in the crock pot this time.

Heat up some olive oil in a big cast iron skillet and sear the roast on all sides… Then place in the crock pot for 7-8 hours with Beef broth, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce… yes.. LOADED with sodium.. I LOVE sodium.

Have that meal with some nice veggies put in the pot with the meat… potatoes and carrots.. green beans.. whatever you like with roast.

a couple of nights later………………………………………

Slice the leftover roast as thin as you can by hand… Chunky but not super thick… Decide on Au jus sauce… I use a pre made au jus that I have to dilute with water… look at your local grocery store or google a recipe for something that you think you might like… it’s all about what you love flavor wise… so put the beef in the pot with the au jus and simmer for a while…

meanwhile………………

Preheat the oven to 450.  If you want the sammy’s on garlic bread… do it… whatever you like… do it… once oven is preheated, put the bread in and toast for a bit.. until it is just brown around the edges… probably about 10 min.

While the bread is toasting, put together the marinated salad.  I use cucumber, marinated artichoke hearts and tomatoes with my favorite italian dressing.  just slice, mix and chill… easy as that!

When the bread is done toasting, put cheese and meat.. again.. cheese, your choice, i used provolone (omg yum), and put back in the oven for a few minutes.. until the cheese is melted…

serve everything up and enjoy… such an easy way to use leftover meat!  a very “comfort food” meal… but not THAT unhealthy.. just the sodium content… whatever people… seriously.. enjoy your food!

love as thou wilt!
