Drip Beef Sandwiches

Tammy Christie 0

"This recipe makes tender, wonderfully flavored meat that is great for sandwiches. I also like to serve it with flour tortillas, cheese, refried beans, etc. for people to 'build their own burritos'."

I made this in my crockpot and it turned out really moist and tender.Suggest cutting down on the oregano a little. Definitely a keeper.


Don't make the same mistake that I did! I used a bottom round roast instead of the chuck roast, and it wasn't good. I quartered the roast before I put it in the water, and after 7 hours it was still very tough and unflavorful. I took the 4 pieces out, and cut them into slices and boiled them for 2 more hours. Then I had to make my own gravy and pour over the slices (once they were removed from the water) to give them some taste. An expensive mistake because I paid $20.00 for this 5lb. roast.


Wow!!! I loved this. It really was very easy to make, just takes alot of time to cook, so plan ahead. I used a 2 1/2 lb roast, so I cut the water, salt, bouillon, and garlic salt in half. But I put the suggested amount of other spices into and tea ball and it worked out great. I'm not a coffee drinker and didn't want to invest in coffee filters I won't use, so I picked up the tea ball on a chain and it was PERFECT for this and reusable. I thought the beef was perfectly spiced and very versatile. The black peppercorns gave it a wonderful flavor. Oh yeah, because the roast was not covered in water, I turned it over every couple of hours. YUM!!! Thanks for this recipe, Tammy!!
