This recipe is one of those happy accidents in life. I had an extra roast and was wondering what to do with it when I decided to peel the label and check underneath to see if the recipe on the packaging sounded good. Um, yeah! It’s so good!! My family dove in before I could even get the beef shredded. And wanted seconds before the corn was even warmed through. And, I’ll be honest, it was the thing I was looking forward to the most in my day today. Do I need to get myself a life or what? LOL! It’s another one of those recipes that you fix in the morning so you can enjoy a laid-back low-key relaxing dinner later. Yes, I’ll be sending a thank-you letter to my crock pot for that!
