The last week of April! Can you believe it? Where does time go? It’s easy for me to lose track of time these days now that I’m not on a regular schedule. (Sorry to those of you who still are) I never thought I would need a schedule again but I’m finding that I waste a lot of time and maybe, just maybe it’s time for me to put myself on a “retirement schedule”. I can’t believe I just typed those words. The blessing is; I’ll be in control of the schedule and I can ignore it whenever I want to! Oh boy, I’m thinking it may not be easy to get this gal going!
These spring days tend to quickly become full of to-do’s and can be overwhelming! It’s testing time at school (speaking from experience, it’s always stressful and exhausting), there are ballgames to attend, gardens to plant, lawns to mow, on top of all the normal things that fill your days. Dinner? Who has time to cook? With this new recipe, you do! Talk about easy! It got rave reviews around my dinner table so hope you enjoy it too!
- 2 lbs. Chuck Roast
- 1 24 oz. jar of dill pickle spears, with liquid
- Sweet Cole Slaw
- 8 Sandwich Buns
- Put your Chuck Roast in a crock pot (I put mine in frozen).
- Pour entire contents of dill pickle jar over meat.
- Season to taste with pepper.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 8-10 hours.
- Pull meat apart with two forks. Remove any fatty pieces.
- (I broke up some of the cooked pickles and included them, too)
- To serve, place 1/4 cup of Cole Slaw on each bun. Top with the pickled beef and enjoy!
Now, I’m the kind of eater that isn’t too fond of combining things so I ate my Cole Slaw on the side. I also LOVE the flavor of dill so added some dill relish to my sandwich. Yummmmm! My dinner companions found the Cole Slaw and meat combo delightful. I did chose to use Hoagie Rolls which are a little more substantial and able to handle both the slaw and meat. Serve these tangy sandwiches with some potato wedges and WAALAA dinner is served. You can even eat on paper plates for an easy cleanup, out the door, on with life kind of night.
