Fareway Bargain Meal of the Week 4/1

Fareway has their rump roasts on sale for the first time in a while. $1.99/lb. Perfect for Italian roast beef sandwiches! You'll make the meat in the crock pot, too, so it's easy!

Your shopping list:

2lbs rump roast= $3.98
1 packet of italian dressing mix= $1.25
1 bag of russet potatoes @ $1.99- use 2lbs= .80
1 bag of Rotella brat buns= $1.99
1lb. Braeburn apples= .88

Your Menu:

Italian Crockpot Beef-

Place roast in crockpot, add italian dressing mix, 2T worcestershire sauce, 1tsp. of liquid smoke if you have it, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove from crockpot, slice thinly, and return to crockpot until serving time. Serve meat on brat buns. This is so good I don't need cheese, but I do occasionally add a sliced onion at the beginning, or a jar of pepperoncini if you like spice.

Roasted Potatoes- Wash and cut potatoes into 1-inch chunks. Put into 1 gallon plastic zip bag. Add 3T olive oil, 2T crushed garlic, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1/4 tsp. of pepper. Shake well, place on cooking sheet and bake at 425 for 30 minutes until potatoes are crisp and golden.

Slice apples and serve along with potatoes and sandwiches.

Cost of everything is just over $9.00. For a family of 4 the meat and buns will make 2 meals.
