  1. A quick ? what will you be serving w/ these? Thats sometimes my hardest part the sides.

    • Hi Karen! It depends on what our family has going on at night – tonight we had it with carrot sticks and salad bc we were in a hurry, but especially if I’m taking it to another family I’ll make it with green beans that have cooked all day long, a salad and macaroni and cheese. The sandwiches are big though, so I really just focus on fresh veggies since the meat and carbs are definitely taken care of! Hope that helps. 🙂

  2. Just love all u do

  3. This was great! I read an article recently (about the most common mistakes with slow-cookers) that said most slow-cooker recipes call for way too long cooking times (hence the often dry/overdone flavor to the meats) and they recommended only 1 – 1.25 hours per pound when cooking on High and only 1.25 – 1.5 hours per pound when cooking on low. So I cooked the meat/peppers for 4 hours on low (and then it sat on “stay warm” for about 20 minutes) then I added the AuJus and set it on low for another 30 minutes. It was great! My husband (who had lost all faith in slow-cooker cooked meats) summed it up after his first bite – “Wow, this is really good!” So kudos on the recipe, and also fyi on the cooking times. I can attest that 4 hours was plenty long to cook the 3lb shoulder roast completely through without overcooking it.

    I can’t wait to try more of these Crocktober recipes!
