Great on the grill (discard any extra marinade) or use as base for breaded chicken baked in the oven (add breadcrumbs, not included in this nutritional label)

Excellent sauce over any dish of your choice. We serve it over whole wheat psata.
Makes a lot of servings, and freezes really well for later use.
We divide it up and store in the freezer for quick meals.

A quick-prep chicken breast recipe that gives a twist to basic barbecue chicken. I throw the chicken breasts in frozen, and serve this with baked potatoes. The sauce makes a great topping for the potatoes. To vary the flavor, try different types of barbecue sauce.

Crockpot 8 layer Garlicy Beef 'roast' stew
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

created 5/28/09
It's important to layer vegetables under meat in a crockpot as they take longer to cook. The root vegetables needing the most time. Along with that, layering them like this allows all the ingredients on top to exude their juices and cook-down to flavor everything below.
I prefer to leave the roast whole as this allows me to remove the fat and cut the meat to my own preference after, which is of course, falling apart and fork tender. It also allows me to separate the roast and freeze some for the future or having the vegetables, which are yummy in their own right, without the beef, for meals I don't want red meat.
I make this as a batch meal, portion it out and keep it in the fridge for a week as something quick and filling.
