If you haven’t already realized, it has been a long time since I posted a recipe. The reason is lately food and I have had a love hate relationship. U could even say food has been my frenemy. Why? Because Brandon and I have been blessed with a new addition to our family come March. So, I have been battling morning sickness, or what I called all day sickness, for the past 3 months, but now I am feeling better.

With that out of the way, I would like to share this extremely easy sandwich recipe. Brandon loves eating this sandwich when we go to McAlister’s. So, since he loves using my Pinterest account, he found a recipe he wanted to try from Melissa’s Bargains.

The recipe:
Beef roast
2 cans beef broth
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp garlic powder
4-6 hoagie buns
Swiss/provolone cheese

Place roast in a greased slow cooker. Pour broth over top of roast and add spices. Cook on low heat 8-10 hours or high heat 5-7 hours. Remove roast and break meat with a fork. Use excess juices for dipping with sandwiches.

The following are adjustments we made. We used beef brisket and marinated it overnight in the broth and spices, fat side down. We cooked the meat fat side up to let the fat juices run down into the meat to keep it moist. For the sandwiches, we used Swiss cheese slices and mayo. We tried to use the au jus to dip the sandwiches, but there was too much fat and it seemed to greasy to eat.

I also wanted to fix a slaw to eat with these sandwiches. So, I found a recipe called Easy Cole Slaw off of Pinterest from Food.com. I love any recipe that says easy. I will warn that the slaw is more wet than I would like it. The dressing ran all over the plate, but it does have good flavor.

The recipe:

1 (16 oz) bag of cole slaw
2/3 cup of mayo
1/4 cup of sugar
3 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Combine dressing ingredients. Add cole slaw. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

The final product. Doesn’t that make you hungry?
