Elegant Austerity Dish: Pot Roast

Slow-Cooked and Sumptuous: Pot Roast
A reduced-price cut of beef is slow-cooked in red wine and vegetables for an elegant, versatile austerity dish. Refrigerated and thinly-sliced, this beef is also excellent in salads and sandwiches. Just sauté the beef in butter, coconut oil or bacon grease, then add wine and vegetables. Cover pot and simmer for about three hours.

>Croques Monsieurs

>

Using a shallow grill pan, a heavy plate and a lid, croques monsieurs are easily made on the cooker or stove-top. Sandwiches are flipped when the cheese on the bottom is soft. Continue cooking, with the lid on top. I do not bother to replace the heavy plate after the croques monsieurs are turned.

Thinly-sliced ham, together with Swiss cheese, home-made bread and a few spoonfuls of butter are transformed into the French luncheon classic, croques monsieurs. Served with a salad or soup, they are part of an elegant luncheon.

Serve croques monsieurs with mayonnaise and Dijon mustard on the side.
