Swissing Beef Roast

There are so many of you, who are just finding my blog and are commenting and emailing me. THANK YOU! It is nice to know hear that there are readers who enjoy what I am doing! Thank you for the kind words and please keep them coming! I love hearing from you and love answering any questions you may have! 
I have a few new ideas for the blog that I plan to share with you in the next couple of days... For example... 

Primal Kitchen, a blog I follow, has an amazing idea! She posts pictures of the preschoolers lunch box, almost daily. It is so refreshing to see that another family is eating the same we do and her preschooler is enjoying it too! She has some great lunch (lunchbox) ideas. Make sure you go check them out!

Here is a 3 year olds plate from lunch. He will be starting preschool in September and I might have to follow her lead and start taking pictures of my boys lunches! :) Might I add, 3 year old also ate a bowl of peas!  
Applegate Turkey, 1/4 Avocado, Carrots, 3 Strawberries and 1/2 Clementine
I made an amazing Roast this week. I have had a few packages of meat with "Swissing Beef" on it. I kept pushing the meat aside not knowing what "swissing beef" was. Not the case this week. I decided to thaw one out and make something with it.

This roast was my first roast not using condense soups, dairy or other not so good for you stuff! This was simple and delicious! I cannot wait to try some more roast flavors!!!

Swissing Meat was basically Roast meat. It was delicious and tender. The meat just fell off the bone.
 Roast -
Swissing Beef
1 cup Beef Broth
1 yellow onion, sliced
Trader Joe's 21 season blend

I added the meat to the crockpot with the seasonings and broth and cooked on high for 6 hours.
At hour 5, I added a bag of small carrots. The carrots steamed and cooked perfectly.

I also made some cauliflower mash! DE-LISH!!!! There is nothing left... We ate it all up!

ENJOY!

    I love the idea of posting the kids' lunches! I am going to have to check that out. I get stuck on pb&j's and apples.

    Swissing Beef looks delicious! My husband has this weird thing about cooking meat with veggies. He likes beef and vegetables just not cooked together.

    Maybe I'll make it when he's working. :)

  2. Thanks Lisa! I am excited about the lunch pictures! I am not promising everyday but I sure will try! :)

    About the meat and veggies.... Don't add the veggies! You can always steam them! But I must add it is nice and easy to add and FORGET!!! :)

  8. I'm so glad that I found your blog. I too have been pushing aside the "Beef for Swissing" in my freezer from a whole cow that we had butchered. I had no idea how I should cook it or really what cut it is. I will be using your recipe. Thanks for posting it!

  9. Funny I should find this blog just now! My neighbor just cleaned out his freezer to make room for a side of beef they just purchased and brought me some packages marked "steak for swissing" just a couple of hours ago! I had no idea what cuts of meat they were! If they are thin enough, or if I can pound them thin enough, I'm going to cut them into good serving portions, place some dressing on them, roll them up, place them in a casserole dish and pour some good beef gravy over them and bake them. Should be good with some mashed potatoes and glazed carrots!
