What a scorcher! It’s just too hot and humid. But why should I complain, it’s the summer. And this heat and humidity had me change my menu today. I do my “big” grocery shopping every 2 weeks, but I still go for veggie/fruit run every week in an effort to get fresh produce. That said, I make sure I have a meal/menu plan for the next 2 weeks even before I do my “big run” to the supermarket.
When I woke up at 10:00 a.m. this morning, knowing that today was gonna be another scorcher, I decided I was not going to heat up the kitchen using the oven or the stovetop for hours. The planned menu had to change. So, I took out my slow cooker, lay down the heat resistant trivet to protect my counter and
started to prep up the 3.4 lb. angus beef bottom round rump roast; the cooker set on low for 8 hours and it came out like this
I just blanched some asparagus and buttered them to accompany my slow cooked beef.
Yummy! The best thing was, it was another easy to prepare meal.
