So you guys know I am a closet Julia Child’s wanna be…I like to experiment when it comes to new recipes and challenging my limited flavor pallet every so often. I also encourage those of you who don’t know how to cook, or don’t cook often to challenge yourselves with a new recipe every once in a while. Well, I made roast beef in the crockpot. Now, although this recipe isn’t new, I am eating it in a new way, encouraged by a trip I took to California for a quinceanera. One of the houses I visited had purchased some precooked roast beef and we had it on a tortilla…OMGGGGGG.
So, after I returned home, I immediately decided to try and recreate this delicious meal and it was just as good with my crock pot roast beef. Since that was such a success, I decided I’d experiment putting it in one of my favorite types of bread, Bolillo! Check out what I did below…
The recipe is very simple so I will provide it here although I don’t have a photo of the meat cooking.
Crock Pot Roast Beef
Pot Roast (your meat…can be whatever cut you prefer)
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup (I personally use the low-fat one)
1 can of water (just fill one of the emptied Cream of Mushroom cans)
1 packet of Lipton onion soup mix
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and pour it over the meat. Some choose to brown off the meat first, but I’ve stopped doing that now and just add salt and pepper to the meat prior to putting it in the crockpot and then I pour the water/soup mixture over it. Cook on high for 4 hrs or low for 8 hrs or until it is the tenderness you like. I like for the meat to be firm, but easy to shred.
Building Your Sandwich
Now to make the sandwich, we just added the meat to a Bolillo roll. Bolillo is a type of Mexican savory bread similar to a baguette. Now my sweetheart, Luis, added avocado, peppers, tomatoes, mayonnaise, and cheese to his (he may have added something else, I honestly can’t remember)…me I just had mayonnaise and American cheese with the meat. When I tell you this sandwich was DELICIOUS!!!! I promise you I am not exaggerating. Try it for yourself and you will be so happy you did. You can find the bolillo (bo-lee-yo) bread in most Panderia’s (Mexican Bakeries). I have even found small versions in the Wal-mart bakery. This is what it looks like.
I hope you try out this delicious recipe and fill your belly and your Life bucket as well!
