Beef On A Hoagie

New Years Day was pretty much a sit-around day for us; no self-set expectations or chores.  I stalked the recipes cooked  by Ree @ Pioneer Woman and found one she called Basic Drip Beef.  I changed it up a tiny bit mostly the seasonings and I cooked it in the crockpot instead of in a big pot on the stove.

Here’s the ingredients as Ree shared them:

  • 1 whole 2.5 to 4 pound chuck roast
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 whole large onion, sliced thick
  • 3 cloves peeled garlic
  • 1/2 cup Soy sauce
  • 1 cup Sherry (cooking sherry ok)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups water
  • Deli rolls, toasted and buttered
  • Optional: Rosemary, thyme or other spices

I sliced the onions a bit smaller since my son is not an onion lover and since somehow my cupboard was bare of any thyme and rosemary, I used some steak seasoning and Lawrys salt. In the picture you’ll see some crushed red pepper flakes but I decided against it.

Saute the onion and garlic in a pan with butter until soft.  Toss in the crockpot and place the chuck roast on top of the onions.  I used two smaller roasts to get to the 4 pound mark. Add all other ingredients.  I cooked for about 4 hours on high and 2 hours on low.

Use two forks and break down the roasts until meat is shredded.  Toast some hoagie rolls.  Place meat and provolone cheese on roll and broil until melted.  I also added some sautéed mushrooms leftover from New Years Eve steak dinner.

You can serve with a bit of the juice for dunking.  It needs a bit of stirring, sorry.  But regardless, it was delicious and I will definitely make again.  Thanks Ree!
