Have you ever read a recipe and been sure there was no way it would work but tried it anyways (because you were desperate for a recipe???) That's the way I felt about this one, but I'm so glad I gave it a try! I found it over at Heavenly Homemakers (my great resource this week!), and it worked out perfectly.
So why was I hesitant? It says to place a frozen roast into your crockpot and cook for just 5 hours – well I figured there was no way on earth that would work, but since I had a frozen roast, I figured I'd give it a chance (we could always have pb&j if it didn't, right?) Well it WORKED! I couldn't believe it! Here's what you'll need to try it out at your house too . . .
2-3 lb. frozen beef roast Bottom Round Roast on sale $2.69/lb. at Publix, I hate for you to have to freeze it but I'm not sure if it will work as well if you don't!
1/2 package italian dressing mix This recipe will be super easy if you have some of these, but since I didn't have any I just halved Heavenly Homemakers homemade italian dressing dry mix, and it was perfect (plus I didn't have to make an extra trip to the store!)
Tortilla Wraps I used the last of my stockpiled Flatout Wraps (I love those things!), but you could also use Mission Tortillas, $.75/1 Mission Tortillas or $1/1 Mission Tortillas 8/1/2010 SS Insert (exp 9/13/2010)
Cheddar Cheese (optional)
Mayonaise or Sour Cream (optional)
Put roast and 1/2 italian dressing packet in crockpot on low. Cook 5 hours. Take beef out and let cool enough to shred. Place back in crockpot and stir to soak up juices.
Top wrap with beef, add whichever toppings you like!
Serve with . . .
