Happy New Year to everyone! I cannot believe it’s 2016. Remember the whole Y2K scare that had everyone so freaked out? That honestly just seems like it was a few years ago, hard to believe it’s been 16 years. . . it’s so crazy how fast time goes.
Let’s start off the new year with a crazy good slow cooker recipe. I can’t decide if I love and use my slow cooker more in the winter or in the summer. I think it’s probably a toss up. I am such a huge fan of slow cookers, are you? These Slow Cooker Roasted Garlic Pulled Beef Sandwiches are currently one of my favorite slow cooker recipes. They are amazing! I actually made these sandwiches several months back, and am finally getting around to posting them. After you taste them, you probably will be wishing I’d shared the recipe sooner, so my apologies.
Now this slow cooker pulled beef might seem a little more high maintenance than other slow cooker meals, but I promise it’s not hard at all. The thing that takes these sandwiches completely over the top is the roasted garlic. That yummy, caramelized, roasted garlic gets tossed in at the end and holy moly it is unbelievably good! If you haven’t ever roasted a whole head of garlic, you won’t believe how easy it is, and it’s so good is other things (try it in mashed red potatoes . . yum!) Here is a simple tutorial on it.
I served this with a green salad and some homemade oven steak fries . . .it was the perfect meal and got rave reviews from my boys. Well, maybe the salad didn’t get rave reviews by Braydon and Parker, but that’s expected!
