Ok, my daughter’s graduation party is over, house is put back together, I am rested, and I’m back into my routine.
While planning for the party, I left it up to my daughter to choose the foods. I knew I wanted to make as much of the food as I could myself so that it was healthy and I would be able to eat it. Selfish, I know…but alot of other people coming have begun to eat healthy too. Plus….that means plenty of taste testers for my recipes!😉
Well I knew I could make some awesome Italian Beef…but that was “before”. What about now? I couldn’t use my regular main ingredients for this dish as they are totally unhealthy. I came up with some ideas for ingredients and gave it a try. Low and behold! The first batch came out perfect! I was soooo happy! This went over very well and I didn’t have much left over😦
The best part? Not very many ingredient! Very easy!
2.4-3 lbs Beef Roast (I used whatever was cheaper. I think round and rump)
1 c low sodium beef broth
1 tbsp Italian Salad Dressing Mix
4 tbsp Braggs
1 tbsp vinegar
Green Pepper, sliced into strips
Onion, sliced then cut slices in half
Add roast, broth, seasoning, braggs, and vinegar to crockpot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until it shreds easily.
When beef first becomes tender enough to just start shredding, add peppers and onions. I like a lot so I use quite a bit.
Before shredding beef, remove layer of fat and discard.
Shred and serve!
I ate mine today on an Ezekiel Sprouted Grain hamburger bun (I only ate half! Saving the other half for tomorrow. MMMMM) You can also eat it wrapped it lettuce or just on a plate (that’s how I ate it for the party. I don’t eat bread often…but when I do it’s Ezekiel Sprouted)
