RECIPE: Shredded Beef For Sandwiches
Any kind of beef roast
1 or 2 envelopes of Au Jus mix
Some water, a cup or so
I just pop my beef roast into the slow cooker, add water, Au Jus mix, onion and garlic, salt and pepper. Let it cook till fall apart tender. Remove beef from crock pot, remove any bones, gristle, fat etc. and shred the good stuff with two forks. Put the shredded beef back in the juices. We like this best on the cheep hamburger buns. If you want “Italian Beef” just add an envelope or two of Good Seasons Italian salad dressing mix. The amounts for everything depend on the size of your roast(s). I make as much as will fit in the crock pot because we want leftovers. It is even better the next day or frozen for later. If you want to make this for a crowd, put several roasts in a large roasting pan, cover well with foil and bake at 325 degrees for several hours.
