You've probably seen this show up on my menus before but I wanted to spotlight it becuase it's really one of my favorite meals. It's a simple meal and not too expensive when you can find roast on sale. For the longest time I thought that all you could do with a roast was serve it along side carrots and potatoes! But there are lots more you can do with them and this is one of my favorite things.
I cook my roast the same way that Laura at Heavenly Homemakers does, except I add about 1/2 cup of water to the bottom of my crock pot. I do this because I love the juices at the bottom! I like to shred up my meat and mix the juices in. I use the homemade Italian dressing mix from Heavenly Homemakers as well. I've used it to make Italian dressing and just didn't like it but I think it's fantastic as a seasoning for roast! I keep some mixed up and ready in my spice cabinet. Unlike Laura, I don't make my own tortillas. I would love to try but just haven't gotten around to it. I have found three different brands that are whole wheat that don't have partially hydrogenated oils but are made with olive oil. So, I go with the lesser evil. ;) We often have these just as she suggests with chopped tomatoes and sour cream. My boys like the wraps with just meat and cheese. Tonight I made them with feta cheese instead of sour cream and they were so yummy! I usually serve them with sauteed green beans or a salad. I've often thought of using homemade taco seasoning on the roast and making them Mexican style, rather than Italian.
As I said before this can be a pretty economical meal when you can find roasts on sale. It's simple, delicious and good for you too!
