Root Beer Beef Strips in the Crock Pot

I had a roast today and wanted to make something different.  I came up with this idea.  Cut your roast across the grain - hold your knife at an angle and slice in thin strips.  Trim off the fat and around the bone while you work.  Put the bone and scraps in another container for later use - (I will post about it tomorrow - crock pot beef stock while you sleep).


1 red onion sliced
3 cloves garlic minced
2 T Worcestershire  Sauce
2 T olive oil
2 T brown sugar
2 T cider vinegar
2 T molasses
1 T Tastefully Simple Every Day Grilling Spice

Mix with meat and put back in the refrigerator for 30 - 45 min.

Put meat and marinade in the crock pot.  Add 1 C tomato sauce and 1 C root beer and salt and pepper.  I put this on high for 3 hours.  The meat is so thin that it didn't take long to cook.  It was very tender.  The root beer helped with that and gave it some good flavor.

I made tacos with the meat.  I warmed up the shells, added some 3 bean and corn "salsa", the meat and onions with cheddar cheese.  

This "salsa" is so easy and cheap to make - even Minnie my dog is watching...:)- look under the cutting board.  She is always under my feet waiting for some treats.  Anyway, 1 can black beans, 1 can red kidney beans, 1 can of northern beans rinse thoroughly and 1/2 chopped red onion.  Keep this in the refrigerator add to salads, eggs or just eat with chips.

What it looks like after cooking.

I could also see this served on a bun, add some BBQ sauce and cheese - steak and cheese sub.
