When in doubt, when you don’t know what to make for supper, when you are facing a week where you want meals to be easy, yet healthy and good, slow roast a nice sirloin tip. The roast is my old trusted friend that never lets me down. I know for a good sized roast, the cost can seem intimidating, but if you are looking at the long haul, it’s a very economical way to go (as is turkey and plump roasting chickens). The first night with the slow-afternoon long roast, you get to enjoy pure and simple the roast itself with the potatoes and onions and of course the gravy!! Yum!
Day two. Lunch is a nice roast beef salad sandwich or a hot roast beef with some of the left over gravy. Fast, filling and fantastic! I like to slice very thin lots of this left over roast and again…sloooow cook in the slow cooker with the gravy a little water, some nice green pepper, a half a cup or more of ketchup and just let it go. I then toast some hamburger buns, make some fries and you have a nutritious meal with a fast food feel and all the great zingy taste.
Day three. Thin slices in sandwiches with mustard for lunch and ohhhh la la, a good lot of beef for a quick stir fry for supper.
And on it goes until every single bite is gone. No waste and a real bang for your grocery buck.
Roasts, don’t let the initial price throw you…the mileage is incredible.
