This is the 2nd time in a week I've made this recipe! I cook a large roast in the crock pot and split it up for 2 meals. I do not use as much butter as this calls for. But, it still comes out great.
I made this tonight using leftover pulled beef with mixed veggies. I lowered the fat somewhat by skipping the butter cooking of the onions and just cooking them in the water in the water I needed for the gravy (when the onion was almost tender I added the frozen veggies into the same pot. To that pot I then added the beef and some brown gravy mix as I didn't have any from the cooked beef. For the biscuit topping I used E-Z Low Fat Bisquick Mix (the only thing I made biscuits with anymore!) made up with fat free milk. I cooked the spuds earlier in the day and with that it all came together very quickly indeed. My 4 serving size was beautifully done in 35 mins. Thanks Diner for a real hubby pleaser!
