Slow Cooker…Wednesday: Drip Beef Sandwiches

This Sunday I was out dining with my family.  We try to do that once every month.
So I didn’t put anything in the slow cooker, but I did on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.

Lately I’ve been craving my Mom’s Drip Beef sandwiches.
I distinctly remember coming home many days after school and walking into a home filled with the smell of this dish going in the crock pot.  (The same crock pot I use today).
I’ve mentioned my mom and cooking quite a bit in this blog.  I should clarify, she wasn’t an excellent cook.  She just didn’t have a great interest in it.  There were a few things she did Very well, her pie, her Coca-Cola Salad, and this recipe were among them.

It’s an incredibly easy recipe, plus it’s one in which almost all items are cabinet/pantry staples.

Drip Beef Sandwiches

3 1/4 Lean Boneless Chuck Roast (or go 3, or 3.5 whatever fits your family)  

1/3 Cup White Vinegar

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/8 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Cloves

1 Onion Cut into Wedges

3 Bay Leaves


Hamburger Buns


Trim the Roast of Excess fat and cut into large portions. Place into the crock pot

Stud the onion with Cloves.  (I love doing this.  I like cloves but they can float around and be difficult to pick out.  I do this with any recipe that I can.)

Add the onion and all other ingredients to the crock pot.  Cook on low for 8-12 hours.  Make sandwiches, use sauce for dipping.

This is so easy to throw together.  I put it on Tuesday night, let it cook overnight, then put together lunch.
It smells Amazing!  Enjoy!!

What a Stud! 🙂

    Yum! We make something similar to this – but being from Illinois, we have to have “Italian beef”… so rather than the various seasonings you listed, we just throw in a package of Italian dressing mix. Although I might try it this way just so I can stud the onion!!
