Journey With Cookbooks #11

The chuck roast recipe…😎 and a surprise…!

Shredded Barbecue Beef…🤤
Four pounds of yummy!!

As I said in #10’s post that it had to marinate for 24hrs.

Spices ready!!
Meat prepared!! See you tomorrow morning!
Oooooooooooo

So it’s not the most exciting process…and I also tweaked the recipe. The recipe called for using a barbecue to grill the meat in a foil container…I didn’t want to break the hubby’s grill while he was out so I made do with a crockpot. I looked up various crockpot chuck roast recipes and they all said similar: Low 8-10hrs. 😎

You can’t really see the progress, but it smells delicious!!

At this point we have about 3hrs to go…

Okay so at this point we have eaten lunch and I have been skimming through this new cookbook and come upon…churros…😳

Churros it is!!

Who can skip the churros recipe…

The batter did not seem correct but I just went with it expecting it to fail…
I didn’t have the correct nozzle so I just made them like this…
Well I got creative with the shapes as the rounds went on, but you see that empty plate…that means they are being eaten as I finish them. 😎

They might have looked strange but they were yummy!!

The cinnamon roll shaped ones came out the best!

Okay back to the roast. It is almost ready!!

It just fell off the bone…actually I thought I was going to be able to pick it up by the bone and the bone just slipped out. 😎

I didn’t realize the recipe was going to have me make a BBQ sauce, but I am happy it did. Costco has not been selling our favorite BBQ sauce, so we’ve been pretty limited.

Made with some of the juices and other varied ingredients, I followed the recipe!

Well I kind of followed it. When I was reading the ingredients my brain change cider to white. So I added 1/2 cup of white vinegar. I realized after I pour it in, and decided to try and ladle some out. I then added about 1/4 cup of cider vinegar. Nobody in my household will know! 😎

Hopefully I am making you hungry!!

Removing the fat this is what remains!! Enough for a few dinners!!

I had to taste it at this point…Yum!

Add some sauce…and…
Hubby’s food.
My food.

I know I always say be healthy but we do occasionally eat other veggies besides salad, I’ve just been too lazy.

So…this recipe is a must for anyone out there that loves meat and barbecue…A MUST!

Look Like Photo: Chuck Roast: Maybe an 8. Since I didn’t smoke/ grill the meat it didn’t take on as much color….I think. I’m not really sure; I’m still new at cooking big chunks of meat.

Churros: 0…it did not in the slightest look like the photo…😒

Taste: Chuck Roast: 10!!!!!!!!!!! I would say 100! But it is out of 10 so 10!!!!!!! The hubby would have had seconds but I said no.

Churros: I would give a 9! It tasted amazing but I think I will follow a different recipe. The dough seemed more like funnel cake batter…that probably would have worked better.

Easiness: 10! Because it was cooked in a crockpot it was super easy!! I think the churros were harder; giving churros a 7.

So overall I had another busy day! Hopefully this drive to cook continues…I love food! I have been exercising…I exercise to eat food!! Mwahahahaha! 😎

Husbands in the world…if you want some new varieties give your wife a cookbook. But make sure she knows you aren’t saying her food is awful. So maybe give her some flowers too!

Enjoy!
