After my long run Sunday, I made a few things.
The first thing I started was Italian Beef. I got this recipe from a guy I haven’t seen since high school (thanks Facebook!).
3lb round bottom roast
Italian dressing mix packet
two cans of beef broth
half a bottle of pepperoncini peppers
I’d the peppers entirely if you can’t handle spicy. I love spicy food and this is almost too much for me, someone who can eat 15 Papa John’s pepperoncini peppers in one sitting. I think the difference is this makes the whole sandwich spicy rather than just a bite of pepper.
Put in crockpot. Cook 6-8 hours on low. Shred the beef towards the end (should be pretty easy to do or it’s not done) with two forks in the crock pot and let it cook a bit more. Done.
Told you I liked pepperoncinis. 🙂 I also added provolone cheese to the sandwiches which tasted great in addition to helping everything stick together. By the way, we joined Costco yesterday and these pretzel rolls already justify the membership. So good.
Then I started on a couple tomatillo salsa recipes I found on Pinterest.
I only used one jalapeño since it was so big, but I’d probably use less if I made this again. My nose is still running from the spiciness.
I ended up using three avocados and some extra cilantro and lime juice to ensure this one wouldn’t be too spicy. Success!
Both salsas in a salsa-off which the avocado one easily won.
