In keeping with the apparent theme I have going on now, which is recipes with 5 ingredients or less, I bring you an easy slow cooker recipe. This recipe is slightly adapted from Taste of Home’s Light and Tasty 2003 Annual.
Spicy French Dip
1 boneless beef chuck roast (about 3 pounds or more)
1 cup water
1 4 oz can of diced jalapeno peppers
1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
Place beef in slow cooker. Mix water, jalapenos, and dressing mix, and pour over beef. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Remove beef and shre. Serve beef on buns with juice.
This makes a lot, and it is universally loved by adults and children alike! Seriously, to have such a wonderful sandwich come from such humble ingredients. And the amount of work involved in this is practically nothing. I mean, open a can, tear open a pouch and fill a cup with water. It takes less than 5 minutes to assemble this! I imagine that the meat would also be good in tacos, enchiladas or quesadillas.
