Slow cook your way to easy entertaining

Recipe & photo by Six Sisters - Pot Roast Sliders

Crock pots and slow cookers can help simplify meals at this busy time of year.  Have you ever tried using them as a punch bowl for mulled wine, hot apple cider, hot cocoa or your favorite hot toddies? They are such an inexpensive investment for such a useful tool in the kitchen and it saves you hours that you can use getting ready for the holidays.  SixSistersStuff has a new book worth checking out.  It's written by, you guessed it, six sisters and contains household tips, recipes, activities for children among other goodies.  Since I am a slow cooker gal all year round, I am always on the hunt for easy slow cook recipes my family will enjoy.  Try this one this week and it will make your house smell amazing while you wrap packages or last minute shop online:) You will love this recipe for Pot Roast Sliders.  

~makes 12 sliders~

1 envelope onion soup mix, 1 envelope Italian dressing mix, 1 envelope au jus mix, 1 cup water, 1 cup salsa, 1 (3-4 lb.) beef roast, 12 dinner rolls (I love Hawaiian rolls found in the bread aisle of your grocery), sliced Swiss cheese

Whisk together the water, salsa and seasoning packets.  Place roast in the slow cooker.  Pour seasoning mixture over roast.  Cook on low 8-10 hours or 4-5 hours on high.  Shred beef with two forks. Cut each roll in half and place on a baking sheet.  Place a slice of Swiss cheese on the bottom half of the roll. Place baking sheet in the oven with broiler on low and broil 1-2 minutes until edges of the roll are golden and the cheese has melted.  Watch closely and don't burn.  Remove baking sheet. 
Place spoonful of beef on the bottom half of toasted bun.  Below is a recipe for Creamy Chipotle sauce
to use on the beef if desired. Delicious!
