Shredded Italian Beef Sandwiches and Fried Sweet Potatoes
I made some honey wheat rolls for the beef sandwiches. Big mistake. They need something less sweet and dense. The rolls on their own are amazing as is the beef. Next time I'll need a lighter, non-sweetened bun. We used monterey jack cheese slices on the beef which was oh so yummy! Sorry about the blurry picture - I was in a hurry to eat. lol.
Honey What Rolls
1 cup warm milk
1 beaten egg - preferably at room temp
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup honey
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cup unbleached flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
Place ingredients in bread machine and start dough setting. This usually takes 1-2 hours depending on the bread machine.
When dough cycled is finished, divide up into as many balls as you like.
Place them on a baking stone and flatten down a bit. Let rise covered till doubled.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
Fried Sweet Potatoes
coconut oil - I used refined since I was frying
Cook sweet potatoes till slightly tender but still a little hard.
Warm up oil in pan and fry sliced, partially cooked potatoes. Make sure to get them nice and golden.
Remove and place on paper towels to remove excess grease.
Season with sea salt.
**Note** The thinner you slices these, the more like fries they'll be. Mine were pretty thick so they were very soft in the middle. Still very good though.
Italian Shredded Beef
1 package italian dressing mix
3 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon onion powder (I didn't have so I didn't use it)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder.
Mix water and seasonings together. Place roast in crockpot and dumb mixture over meat. Cook in crockpot over low for 8 hours if thawed or on high for 8 hours if frozen.
Take meat out and shred. Place back in crockpot for about 15 minutes.
Spoon with a slotted spoon onto buns.
