Crock Pot Recipes

Crock Pot Italian Beef

3 to 4 pound rump roast
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
2-1/2 cups water
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. oregano
Dash Worcestershire sauce
Dash soy sauce
1 package Italian salad dressing mix

Put roast in crock pot. Combine remaining ingredients in saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Remove from heat and pour over roast in crock pot. Cook all night on low or 6 to 8 hours on high. About 1 and 1/2 hours before serving, flake meat apart and continue cooking. Serve with French bread. When I made this it was very good, nice and tender. My hubby suggested that next time I make it I should add some fresh garlic and some onions. We served it over rotini pasta. This is one of those meals that tastes better the next day. Oh yeah I forgot this, I used a chuck roast instead of a rump roast, chuck roasts were on sale at the time.

Stove top version

Saute celery, onion and bell peppers in oil or butter until tender. (Better if left a bit crunchy.) Add remaining ingredients except meat being used. Simmer at least 30 minutes to an hour. Add shrimp or whatever meat you wish and simmer 30 minutes more.
