Pepperjack Roast Beef Sandwiches


On Saturday, I cooked a roast in the slow cooker. No real recipe. Just cut up a bunch of red potatoes and carrots and placed them in the bottom of the crockpot. Placed the roast on top of those and poured in about 2 cups of beef broth. Then salt and peppered the roast. Cooked all day in the slow cooker.

Then I removed the roast and veggies and used the liquid to make a gravy. Just heated it in a sauce pan on the stove and added some corn starch that I had combined with a few tablespoons of cold water. Add corn starch mixture when the cooking liquid has come to a boil.

It was a large roast and I had leftovers. Only I was in the mood for something with a bit of spice. So I created Open Faced Roast Beef Sandwiches covered with Pepperjack Cheese! It was delicious! Sorry that the picture didn't come out well. It was night out when I made this and I couldn't get good lighting.

Open Faced Pepperjack Roast Beef Sandwiches
leftover roast
leftover gravy
sliced sourdough bread
sliced pepperjack cheese
butter

Heat roast beef and gravy together in a saucepan until nice and hot. Keep on low to keep warm while you grill the bread.

In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, place a small pat of butter and let it melt. Then grill one side of your bread, flip over and toast up the other side. Repeat with desired number of pieces of bread.

Top grilled bread with meat and gravy, then add a slice of pepperjack cheese. Warm for a few seconds in the microwave to get cheese all melty. Serve with veggies from roast.

This was so good! I also really think the sourdough bread really helped make this dish. So I recommend you try it. I use the kind like Cracker Barrel sells. Enjoy!

This recipe definitely Works for Me!

Happy eating!

A Civil War Recipe..... Oatmeal Pie

Princess came home with an assignment to to a Civil War project. There were several options but she and I always gravitate to the ones that involve cooking. So we chose to make a recipe from the Civil War time to share with her class. Can I just say how grateful I am for the internet when it comes to these school projects? We looked online and found many different recipes. I wanted one that used ingredients I already had on hand and hopefully one that would be a bit tasty.

I finally found a forum where people were sharing Civil War recipes and someone had shared one for Oatmeal Pie from Charleston, South Carolina. Apparently, during the Civil War, pecans were in short supply. So oatmeal was subbed for pecans to make a sort of mock pecan pie.

This recipe is very tasty and really easy. It does remind me of a pecan pie, but at the same time a little reminiscent of an apple crisp because of the oatmeal and the cinnamon. Very delicious! I'm hoping her class really enjoys it. She said t…

Salt-Free Ranch Dressing Mix

I don't know about you but I really enjoy ranch dressing. The stuff in the bottle is okay, but if you look at the ingredients it contains some not so good stuff like MSG and added sugar. It also has a lot of added sodium. I'm trying to watch my sodium so I decided to make a salt-free ranch mix, then I can control the salt whenever I make the dressing or add it to a recipe. It's super easy to make your own ranch mix. If you make a batch of this up, you can have it already on hand to make ranch dressing or add it into other recipes. Let's get started!

Salt-free Ranch Dressing Mix

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp of dried parsley
4 tsp of dried dill
4 tsp of onion powder
4 tsp of minced dried onion
2 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of ground black pepper

Combine the spices in a bowl and from here you can process them for a bit in a mini food processor to mix well and make some of the parsley smaller or you can use a coffee grinder as a spice grinder. Then place in a container and …
