I should be working on book three of the Elesin Vollan Story but since I have severe procrastination issues, I’ve decided to share the meals that I cook. My goal is to cook every week using meals I’ve found on Pinterest and critique them. I’m sure that I will make it until the end of the month before I am bored with this blog but here we go.
As a single person who seems to always be in-between jobs, I like to try to cook great meals on a budget. I hope to inspire individuals to share their meal ideas and experiences with the others. I will also provide pictures of perfectly executed meals but also the not so perfect as well.
The first in the line up Three Envelope Beef, which is my go-to for a quick no hassle crockpot meal.
3 pound beef roast such as chuck roast
1 envelope of dry Italian salad dressing mix
1 envelope of dry ranch salad dressing mix
1 envelope of dry brown gravy mix
2 cups water
It calls for 2 cups of water but I use 1 cup since the beef creates it’s own broth. I also throw in some red potatoes and onions. I place the meat in first then toss the vegetables on top. In a bowl, I mix the dry ingredients into the water. Once properly mixed, I pour the liquid over the roast and veggies. On high, it takes about 4-5 hours and on the low setting 6-7 hours.
Obviously, since I’ve made this before, it’s quite tasty and the cooking instructions can’t get any easier than this. I can’t tell you how many servings it makes but if you are single, you will have so much left over that you will consider becoming veggan.
