When I was still living at home, a roast with mashed potatoes and vegetables was one of my favorite meals. Living on my own and learning how to cook, I discovered what a pain it can be to bake a roast, especially if you are working and do not have the time.
This roast is cooked in the slow cooker, so it cooks while you work. You come home to an amazing smelling house and a delicious dinner. One of the easiest roasts you will ever make. There are only 2 ingredients. Yup…only 2. You then have the option of serving it as is, as a sandwich, or with rice or potatoes.
1 Beef Roast, eye of round or really any kind you want, trimmed of fat.
1 16oz jar of banana peppers
What You Do:
1. Place the roast in the crockpot.
2. Pour the banana peppers, along with all of the liquid on top.
3. Turn the crockpot on low, and cook at least 6-8 hours. I leave mine on all day and it comes out great.
4. Shred beef using 2 forks. It will pretty much just fall apart.
Makes about 8 servings, depending on the size of the roast. Each serving is 6 Points Plus if you are on Weight Watchers.
If you plan to serve it as sandwiches, ciabatta bread works best. Broil the bread a little bit first. Crisping up the bread will make the sandwich a little less messy. Top with the beef mixture.
To make it even more tasty, top it with a slice of cheese. We used light pepper jack cheese. The entire sandwich, with cheese is 10 Points Plus, and delicious!
