Mellow Monday: Crock Pot Shredded Beef

Do you ever get that post-holiday hangover?   It's that haze that hovers over you the day after a holiday.  It certainly isn't that you didn't enjoy the day or love how things turned out.  I think its a combination of exhaustion from traveling to ensure you see everyone and maybe a little relief that...phew, we made it through another holiday.  Maybe, the hangover is even just a little bit of the blues.  No one likes to go back to reality after a holiday. With your post-holiday hangover it is hard to make a big fuss over dinner, so I decided to post a super easy, toss-in and go crock pot recipe today.  I bet you probably have most of these ingredients in your kitchen already.

I heart, which is where I got this recipe. There are so many recipes it can make your head swirl.  You can get pictures, reviews and best of all nutritional facts on each recipe.  Plus, it is really easy to search for specifics and they have a ton of great meal/snack/dessert ideas.  If you're in a recipe rut, check it out.

Crock Pot Shredded Beef

  • 2 lbs chuck roast
  • 1 (1 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1/4 cup water

  • Trim chuck roast of any excessive fat.
  • Place chuck roast in crock pot.
  • Sprinkle dry Italian dressing over meat.
  • Add water.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  • Use 2 forks to separate and shred meat.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes, veggies and crispy rolls.
  • Also makes great sandwiches, with or without barbecue sauce. Freezes very well

Post-holiday hangover, yet another great reason to have a Mellow Monday!  Have a great day today and enjoy your crock pot shredded beef.
