Embarrassingly Easy BBQ Beef
So easy I blush. Surely this is too simple to blog about, but it is what we had for dinner tonight, so....this is it. Embarrassing, I know.
Crock pot meals tend to be a bit on the simple side. True comfort food. This qualifies on both. All I did today was add a package of beef medallions--that's what the guys at the meat sale call them. They are more like odd sized chunks of, say, stew meat. Great for slow cooking. At $1.50 a pound, we find several ways to eat them. Today, I just poured some of the KC Masterpiece Classic Blend sauce over the top. I do realize there has been a lot of talk about this sauce being discontinued, but the grocery store down the street from me still stocks it. I don't get it, but I am not complaining. I have stocked up just in case my little corner of the planet has the last remaining store of this wonderful stuff. Why is all the diet/diabetic stuff disappearing lately? It's not like America is suddenly skinny.
Today, I cooked this on high for 4 hours. The meat was tender enough to cut with a fork. Since the sauce tends to get a bit lost with the meat juices, I poured a bit more on top after I served it. Good Stuff. The leftovers are great to shred and serve in lettuce rolls with onion and pickle.
I was in the mood for brussel sprouts tonight, so we all had a different side dish. That's not so bad when the entree is so easy. I sure don't make a habit of that though!
