Fall Apart Roast Beef

YUM! This roast beef recipe is the only recipe you will ever want to make again! Roast beef is one if not my favorite dinner and in my eyes, it has to be done right.

Growing up lunch at my grams after church was roast beef, mashed potatoes, and corn, a staple in our family. If it wasn’t made at Nanny’s, it was in the oven at my parents house when we left for church Sunday morning. Growing up my entire life, walking through the door from church smelling the roast cooking, you knew lunch was about to be delicious! The only thing now, I miss those cherished families meals at Nanny’s on Sunday. Thank the good Lord she is still here, just tells me “damn you see those roast prices!!!!”

This one time, I told Ryan to put the roast in while I was at work. In his defense, I must have bought a bad roast but I always tease him bout that one time he butchered it. Just to be clear on how he butchered it- he dumped an entire Miller light in the crock pot to keep it “moist”! It was floating in beer and sriracha when I got home from work. HAHA MOMENT!

So in our house, we follow this recipe to the T, no matter what crazy ideas Ryan has, he blocks those out and cooks the roast exactly how I say while I am at work. So for the absolutely best tasting, mouth watering roast I got you. Trust me! Ryan has learned!
