I've suggested for some time that Mississippi Roast deserves a thread of its own. I know, i was the most skeptical of this @#$%^ concoction, er, recipe. But it does work and is a perfect foil for improv. I've written up some of my bastardizations in Sneak's thread. But can we add more here?
Most recent, a small chuck roast., No au jus mix or Hidden Valley packet on hand, But did have an aged Lipton's Onion Soup mix and a jar of extra rich Caesar dressing. Followed the classic process except I don't have a slow cooker. Browned stovetop, added mix and dressing, a cup of water, a jalapeno, let simmer in 275 oven for 3 hours.
Broke up the tender meat. Tarted up a large can of pintos, what husband calls my "Gringo beans". Tortillas, lettuce, tomato, cheese, sour cream, green sauce.
Satisfying if not authentic.
