BBQ Beef Melt

I'll just throw out my disclaimer now. I really do love to cook-- but there are those days (more often than not) that McDonalds dollar menu wins the dinner fight. Lately I've just felt so overwhelmed with everything I need to do that by the time I get home from work I have no more energy to give. My poor husband! A few days ago I decided that I really did need to change. I need to become more organized and spend my time doing the things I need to do instead of watching reruns of Project Runway. Part of my re-organization goal was to cook at home- of course this meant I needed quick and delicious meals so McDonalds wouldn't sound so good! This is a meal my hubby and I threw together one night and we LOVE it at our house. He loves how good it tastes and I love that I literally only spend 10 minutes in the kitchen. It's fabulous.

BBQ Beef Melt
2 lbs Beef Roast
2 cups BBQ sauce
1 loaf french bread
2 cups mozzarella cheese

Cook Beef Roast in crockpot on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. When cooked through. Shred beef and return to crockpot with 2 cups of BBQ sauce and cook for an addition hour (unless you are pressed for time- then just warm it all up on the stove). Cut french bread in half (horizontal) and load one side with BBQ beef. Top with mozzarella Cheese. Broil (both sides of the bread- the one with the BBQ beef on it and the "topper") for 3-5 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Replace top of french bread. Cut into 2" strips and serve immediately. Dip in ranch. (of course)
