Looks good doesn't it!
Tonight for dinner we had Drip Beef Sandwiches. I have to give a shout out to Ree over at http://www.thepioneerwoman.com/, she has THE most amazing blog on cooking, photography, homeschooling and gardening. She ROCKS! I have made several of her recipes over the past few years and every recipe that I have made of hers have been delish. I do usually add my own style to them, but thats the beauty of cooking. My philosophy is a recipe is just a guideline. Anyhow, back to the Drip Beef Sandwiches. This was a very simple recipe with only a few ingredients, but packs a big punch of flavor. Here is a link to Pioneer Womans blog (she has step by step yummy pictures), otherwise, here is the recipe (minus all the step by step yummy pictures).
1 whole Beef Chuck Roast, 2.5 To 4 Pounds
1 can Beef Consomme Or Beef Broth
3 Tablespoons (heaping) Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ cups Water
½ jar (16 Oz) Pepperoncini Peppers, With Juice
Buttered, Toasted Deli Rolls
Combine all ingredients in a heavy pot or dutch oven. Stir lightly to combine seasoning with the liquid.
Cover and bake in a 275 degree oven* for 5 to 6 hours, or until meat is fork-tender and falling apart. **If meat is not yet tender, return to oven for 30 minute intervals till it’s tender!**
Remove from oven. With two forks, completely shred all meat, leaving no large chunks behind. Serve immediately, or keep warm over a simmer on the stove.
May make the day before, then store in the refrigerator. Remove the hardened fat from the top before reheating.
Serve on buttered, toasted rolls. Top with cheese and melt under the broiler if desired. Serve with juices from the pot.
Here's what it looks like straight out of the oven after shredding. It was sooooo good. The pepperoncini peppers added a slight tangy spice to the meat. It was really different, but in a good way. I don't like spicy things, but this I really liked. For those that really like spicy, they can eat the peppers on the sandwich for an added spice. I however just topped the buttered bun with the meat and a little mozzarella and dipped it in the yummy juices. Darin quite enjoyed it and it will be another dish that I will add to my "Make Again List".
