Slow cooker roast beef & roast beef pizza

Here are 2 recipes that I have come to love!! I found both of these at .

Slow Cooker Roast Beef
  • 3 pounds beef chuck roast
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper


  1. Pour the soy sauce and dry onion soup mix into the slow cooker. Mix well. Place chuck roast into slow cooker. Add water until the top 1/2 inch of the roast is not covered. Add the fresh ground pepper over the top.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 22 hours.
This was SOOO good! A big hit for everyone!

Roast Beef Pizza
  • 1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups chopped cooked roast beef
  • 1 tbsp dehydrated onion flakes
  • 1 1/4 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded fiesta blend cheese
  • 1 (1 pound) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass dish, combine oil, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Add beef, onion and mushrooms; toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, let dough rise at room temperature for 1 hour. Punch dough down and roll into a 14-in. circle. Transfer to a greased 14-in. circle. Transfer to a greased 14-in. pizza pan. Drain and discard marinade; arrange beef and vegetables over crust. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-40 minutes.
This recipe is my variation to the one on Allrecipe. But, it turned out AWESOME! Instead of using frozen bread dough, I made some pizza dough using my bread machine. It turned out really good. Definately a recipe that will be used in the future.

As a side note, I just used the same roast beef from the slow cooker meal for the pizza. That way I got 2 different meals out of one, and leftovers too!!

New Blog

So, I've decided I needed a separate place to put my menus and favorite recipes that I come across. So, this is it! Hope those who come across will find something to their liking. :)
