Blogger's Choice time again!
However, The Peanut has entered his clingy phase. Like clockwork around 4 p.m., when I'm starting dinner prep, Liam wants to be held. Yes, I could wear him in my Boba carrier (like I used to wear him in the Moby when he was a newborn), but he's a bit taller now, so I can't see over his head. He's also a bit grabby, and the last thing I want is him trying to grab my chef's knife!
So, I chose a recipe that both sounded delicious, and required little prep: French dip sandwiches that cook in the crock pot.
These were perfect! I chopped the onions and seared the roast during Peanut's morning nap. The sandwiches were ready and waiting when The Mister walked in the door from work. I opted to make the jus out of beef broth and beer. I used a English-style mild ale called a Brawler by Yards Brewery (a local brewery). The meat had great flavor, came out very juicy, and was so tender and easy to shred. We both really enjoyed the sandwiches.
