Dinner’s Ready!

Looking for an easy weekday dinner? We had this last night, and it was so easy and delicious that I thought I would re-post it (from an early post in my lengthy 4 month blogging career.) 😉 It’s so simple. You can throw it together in the morning (or the night before), let it cook all day, and dinner is ready when you are. It’s one of my favorites – and is perfect for the busy days ahead.

Edited: I’ve linked to a website where you can buy Dales and the dry rub if you don’t have it in your area. 🙂

Crock Pot BBQ Roast

1 beef roast (whatever size you need)

Rendezvous Seasoning rub (I know, this is a Southern thing – just use any kind of dry BBQ rub you like)

Dales Sauce (another Southern thing – but it may be sold everywhere? If not, you could use Worcestershire Sauce.)

Heavy aluminum foil

Rub the roast with the dry rub and place it in a foil pouch. Pour Dales over it and seal it well. Place it in a crock pot, along with about 2 cups of water. Cook this on low all day or night. The longer it cooks, the more tender it will be.

(I often wrap greased baking potatoes in foil and place on top of the roast. And, if there is room, I’ll season green beans and wrap them in a foil pouch and place on top, too. If I had a bigger Crock Pot, I would season and wrap baked beans in foil and cook them along with everything else.)

When you’re ready to make the BBQ, pull the roast out of the foil, letting the seasoned liquid run back into the crock pot. Place the roast in a bowl and shred it with a fork.

At this point, you can do several things with it:

1. To make BBQ sandwiches: Mix BBQ sauce in with the roast, and serve on buns. We’ll eat this with a salad and baked beans.

2. To make a “French Dip” style sandwich: Pour a little seasoned liquid onto both sides of a hoagie roll, add cheese, and the roast. Serve some liquid on the side to dip the sandwich in. (My husband likes to add horseradish to his sandwich.) I serve potato chips and a salad with this meal.

3. To make BBQ Baked Potatoes: Season the roast with BBQ sauce. Cook the potatoes along with the roast. Cut open the potato and fill with butter, salt, pepper, BBQ, grated cheese, and sour cream. Yummm.

An easy, basically one-dish, meal. Dinner’s Ready… Hope you enjoy it. ;- )
