Shredded Roast Beef Gravy

This is a great budget meal especially if you find a shoulder roast or such on sale. Here is what you will need for a family size meal.

  • small roast
  • 2 onions
  • 1-2 bell peppers
  • 1/2 C. flour
  • 3 Tbs cooking oil
  • 1/4 C. corn starch

Heat your oil in a skillet. Coat roast with flour and brown in skillet. Cut your onions and peppers in bite size pieces and put in crock pot along with browned roast. add enough water to fully cover all, I usually just fill to top. Cook on high for several hours until meat is tender. Remove roast and cut off fat and shred meat, set aside. Put the corn starch in a sifter and sift over the remaining liquid, stirring. Continue stirring until well dissolved and starting to thicken. Then add the shredded meat and turn to low until ready to serve. We serve this over either boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes or cooked rice.
