I am writing this down because it was a experiment and it turned out so yummy, I want to remember the recipe.
one 31/2 pound chuck roast $9 ( I have no idea if this was a good price or not, I rarely buy beef since my parents moved in)
3 TBS better then bouillon beef- .75 cents
about 4 cups of water, I just covered the roast
1 envelope of dried onion soup mix -.50 cents
2 TBS diced garlic- .30 cents
6 Hoagie buns-$2
about 1/2 a loaf of bread- $1.50
Provolone cheese- 2.50
About $1.30 a sandwich
and I will get gravy for another meal out of the drippings. Not bad!
I sprayed my crock pot with baking spray, peppered the roast on all sides, Added water, bouillon, dry onion mix, and garlic. Covered it and cooked on low from about 10pm Saturday night until about 1 pm Sunday. Cooking it low and slow resulted in the moistest roast beef I have ever tasted. I served it on toasted hoagie buns with provolone cheese and shredded the beef. A little pepper on each sandwich and drippings for dipping... and OH MY GOSH!! So good. We had 3 sandwiches at lunch between us, and then for dinner, I made 5 more sandwiches and fed, hubby, me, my 2 year old, (She ate about 1/3 of a sandwich) my mom and my step dad. We had chips on the side. I put the rest away in a glad ware with enough drippings to cover the leftover beef. We got about 5 more sandwiches out of it over the next few days. I saved the rest of the drippings in the freezer for gravy at some point.
