About me: I have always liked to cook, particularly breads, fruits, vegetables, vegetarian, poultry and lamb dishes. After marriage we cooked together progressively more difficult dishes with him doing the meat, grilling and frying, and I did the "dough" and the same type of things I had before. After children we started cooking more simply. After discovering the cause of my frequent migraines was an evolving long list of chemicals and odd ingredients, I began getting back to cooking from basic ingredients, and found I could be well again. I also try to cooking from what I can get in season at the ever present fruit and vegetable stands.

Cooking with Garlic

Hot Beef Sandwiches : page 12

The flavor of this slow cooker recipe was amazing and we loved the departure from the usual barbeque for shredded meat around here. The size of the beef chunks weren’t specified. My son cut them into 1” chunks and did not trim the fat. This may be why there was so much liquid at the end. The smaller pieces made it difficult to shred, we recommend cutting the beef into the size of beef shreds you would like to have at the end. You may not have everything on hand for this. I had the mustard seeds, but had to pick up the sliced dill pickles. I couldn’t find the 6 oz jar specified, so weighed out the 6 oz to make it easier for my son to put it together in the morning. Our can of chopped tomatoes did not have Italian seasoning, so we added 1 ½ tsp of dried Italian herbs. We served this as recommended on rolls with lettuce, sliced tomatoes and onions and look forward to making it again.
