This Is Beef Heaven

I found this recipe on a blog recently and made it for Super Bowl Sunday. It was so outstanding I thought that some of you might want to try it. It starts with a cheap cut of beef. This is a bottom round. Put it in a heavy pot.


Slice a couple of large onions and spread them around the beef.


Pour in two cans of beef consume'.


Add one 16 oz. can of pepperocinis along with half of their juice. This adds a real tang to the sauce.


Sprinkle liberally with Italian seasoning. I used about 5 tablespoons. If your Italian seasoning contains salt, cut back on the added salt accordingly.


Cover the pot and place it in a 250 degree oven for 5-6 hours. Don't even bother checking on it.


Oops...I forgot a step. You can see I decided to add a bunch of fresh garlic cloves. I was feeling a bit frisky.


After 5 hours remove it from the oven. It smells sooooo good.


You should be able to shred it easily with two forks. If it doesn't shred, put it back in the oven for an additional 30 minutes. It is done when the meat falls apart.


While the meat is cooking, make some garlic butter buns. Just combine softened butter with chopped garlic, fresh parsley, salt and pepper and spread it on your choice of buns. Broil until the edges turn golden brown.


To prepare the sandwich, lay out the garlic butter buns.


Pile on the heavenly shredded meat along with some of the onions, garlic and pepperocinis. You can see the steam pouring out of the meat.


Cover with a few pieces of provolone cheese and broil until melted.


Serve it with a small bowl of the juice for dipping. I can not begin to tell you how scrumptious these are. Everyone across the board devoured these. The roast cost me about 6.00. This recipe made about 15 sandwiches.

*** I am on the road tomorrow...heading towards snow country. Perhaps now you can appreciate my complete insanity! I bet I have more snow than Skaneateles! I am justifying the trip because of my need for more maple syrup. I am down to my last 1/2 gallon. I will take lots of pictures.

*** The giveaway ends Sunday morning so there is still time to enter by clicking on the button on the sidebar. I will be listing another one at that time.

That looks ridiculously nummers! I will have to give that a try. Have a really safe and productive trip. I'll try not to brag, but we're sunny and in the 70s the entire next week. The grapevines and peach tree and pomegranate tree are bursting with new leaves. Spring fever here!

My mouth is seriously watering for this! (and I just ate lunch) Will definitely try this one soon. Safe travels!

That recipe is a must try! And you be careful on your journey.

Do you freeze your maple syrup? I buy it by the gallon, fill up some smaller bottles for my kids and myself, and stick the rest in my chest freezer. It never freezes completely, but get very sluggish, and won't spoil!

When someone needs a refill, I get out the jug, let it warm up enough to pour, and then put it back into the cold.

Have a fun weekend! I'm looking forward to seeing more gorgeous photos!

I love it the way you post recipes. Step by step with pictures and easy advice! You made me a better cook!
By the way, even here some foods are thought turkish and are instead greek and the other way around.
Maple syrup here is very rare. Me and a friend of mine are obsessed with that stuff. We ate it in a journey and looved it. Since then we try to find it in health stores, big supermarkets and some stores that bring stuff from abroad, but with no luck. So we gave up along with the idea of finding brussel sprouts and berries(although you can see many trees with berries there are never any in the convienient stores, weird huh?). Another thing i could n't find anywhere was stevia. For one noone knew about it! And today i found some! It was ridiculously expensive(50 grams for 25 euro) but i am so excited i finally got some! I am going to make a pumpkin pie with it, using of course your recipe! I will even try to make the leaves with the extra dough! I will tell you how it goes!
Once again thanks for all the recipes, information and inspiration!

I cannot believe no one has acknowldged they've tried your recipes ! I am so tempted whenever you have a food post . I homeschool so at times it is hard to try everything but I am so loving the warm toasty meals you are posting as we have such a long winter here .
I also really wanted to write you about which witchy writers you have enjoyed reading ? I looked for book suggestions on the side scroll but could not seem to find a link . I know you said you have quite a collection and I'd love to learn who you have enjoyed .
I love Ellen Dugan & Kate West . I also just disovered Silja ! maybe you would be inspired to do a post on books & authors for winter reading fun ;-)
thanks so much for Your inspiration & sharing Your creative way
