Sunday Supper: Grandma Mary's Beef Sandwiches


    So if you haven't noticed from my last recipe I love food that is easy to make and full of flavor.  This recipe is from my grandma and is used at family parties all the time and everyone says how good they are. When I got older I asked for the recipe and once I realized they are so easy to make, I now make them all the time.  You cook these in the crockpot, which I also love because you can just throw everything in then you're done. 

Grandma Mary's Beef Sandwiches
3lbs pot roast
1/2 a bottle of fat free Italian dressing
1 package of dry brown gravy mix

Put all the ingredients in the crockpot cook about 6-8 hours. Use a fork to shred beef and serve with cheese and peppers.
*make sure to use fat free dressing I've been told if you use regular it's greasy
* I've made it without the brown gravy packet and it's still great
*You can easily double or triple recipe for parties
Honestly you have to try these I've made these for parties and people always tell me what a great cook I am.  Little do they know it's so easy!
