This is a favorite recipe of mine which can be used for any time of year. Making it in a crock pot will keep your house cool in the warmer months…I know what your thinking….a roast in the summer? At the end of this recipe I will tell you how I alter this for a summer meal! The pictures in this post are of a cut of pork, you can also use a beef roast too, same ingredients and same recipe goes for either type of meat! My favorite way to cook this is in a crock pot. This way I can leave the house and run errands but if you don’t have a crock pot then do the same thing with a large pot on the stove making sure your pot has a good fitting lid. So get out your crock pot and let’s get started!
So your roast has cooked all day and you check the temperature and it has reached 170°. Now it’s time to make gravy. Don’t panic, it’s not that hard and this is the simplest gravy ever. You’ll need one ladle full of cooking juices from your crock pot, water, a few more bouillon cubes and cornstarch (flour or gluten free flour).
Ok, this is great for the cold months but what about the rest of the year? Well….get a roast and cook the exact same only skip the veggies….cook as usual and when done pull out and slice or shred. Get some tortillas, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, buffalo ranch dressing and serve as a shredded beef tacos!
