Dinner Ideas

I love to cook! I even wrote a book about how important time with your family is and how so many families today live in such a hurry that they never sit down together! I feel passionately that it is important! Anyway I made an inexpensive, easy, and tasty meal tonight that I thought I would share it. I bought a bottom round roast because they were on sale at my grocery store. The key to making a good roast is proper seasoning and cooking time!

Put your roast in an oven safe dish with a lid. Sprinkle it with garlic salt and black pepper. Put 1/2 cup of water in the dish and bake for 5 hours at 275. The meat will just fall apart! Next I chunked up the roast...removing any visible fat. I mixed one packet Aujus gravy mix (dried packet) with the juices from the roast and 2 cups of water. I added the beef back to the juice. I let it stand in the juice for about 30 min. With a slotted spoon I dipped the meat onto whole wheat buns (if you don't drain it..the bread will be soggy.) I made a salad and steamed veggies that I got on sale at the store last week. 29cents a bag after my coupon!! :) We all loved it! It was a good meal and I was not tied to the kitchen for hours.

Love those babies!

Sounds delicious! I bet that could also be done in a crockpot for someone who wasn't going to be at home all day with the oven on. Thanks for sharing it. :-)
