And when the time comes for cooking, you either find yourself dragging your feet into the kitchen to cook a quick meal or, you’re calling your favorite nearby take-out and delivery restaurant.
Let’s save you and your family a little bit of money. One of the reasons why I love this easy roast beef dipped sandwiches recipe is because of its simplicity. This is my family’s go-to crockpot meal for those days when I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
The following recipe is from my cookbook, “50 Freezer Meals: Easy Dinner’s for the Busy Family.” To learn more about this recipe (and the other delicious recipes), click HERE.
You put three items in the crockpot, turn it on low for 8-hours and walk away. The only hard part is fighting off the temptation to start eating the roast sooner because it will fill your home with a very delicious smell.
