  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Slow Cooker
  • 2 Forks


  • 3 pound beef roast (either beef or pork- we use whatever is on sale that week!)
  • 29 ounces beef consommé 2 (14.5 ounce) cans
  • 8 bun (we love hoagie buns, but any kind will work)


  • Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place roast in greased slow-cooker. Pour consomme over the top of the roast.
  • Cook on low 8-11 hours or on high for 5-7 hours. Remove roast and save extra juice for dipping.
  • With 2 forks, shred roast (when it is done, it should pull apart easily, almost falls apart).
  • Serve meat on buns and use extra juice to dip sandwiches in.


To make this a quick and easy freezer meal, place roast in a resealable gallon-sized freezer bag and pour beef consomme on top. When ready to eat, remove from freezer and thaw in fridge for 24 hours. Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and place contents of bag inside slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 8-11 hours (or HIGH for 5-7 hours). Remove roast from slow cooker and save extra juice for dipping! With 2 forks, shred roast and serve meat on buns.
