Superbowl Roast Beef Sandwiches
Topic: Recipes

I know it's last minute...

But, here's a quick idea for tonight's game menu. (Remember, you have to work tomorrow so you don't want everyone just eating snacks for dinner!) 

 Crockpot Roast Beef

Lightly spray-oil the crockpot. 

Place a 2-3 lb. round or sirloin tip roast in the crockpot.

Add 1 can of undiluted Golden Mushroom Soup (if you want a thicker gravy)

OR--Add 1 can of undiluted French Onion soup (if you want an "au Jus" type gravy)

Cover the crockpot, cook on low until game time (about 8-10 hours-you can't overcook). Do NOT be tempted to dilute the soup or peek or add any water!

When ready to serve, take the roast out to a platter, allow to rest about 10 minutes, then slice thinly for sandwiches.  Return slices to the crockpot and gravy to keep warm until your side dishes are ready.

IF you want a thicker gravy, when the meat is on the platter, whisk in a rounded tablespoon of flour directly into the crockpot juices, until thickened.


 

 

 

For sides--

how about a vinegar-and -oil or creamy cole slaw (mayonnaise, cider vinegar, salt, pepper, onion powder, dillweed) 

maybe some "doctored up" smokey baked beans?

and "cheesy potato casserole" (those boxed potato casseroles are not a bad idea and when you sneak in some kale or spinach, they'll never know) 

 Have a great Game Night!
