In our community cookbook, we ask readers to submit their best-loved recipes. Here’s a taste of what got the highest raves in the Southern Living test kitchen this month.
WINNER! From the Kitchen of Julie Hutson
Perfect as a bowl-game bite, you can also serve Julie Hutson’s Slow-Cooker Beef in slider buns with your favorite sandwich toppings.
Slow-Cooker Beef Nachos
Season 1 (3-lb.) boneless beef rump roast with salt and pepper. Brown all sides of roast in 1 Tbsp. hot oil in a large skillet over high heat. Place in a 6-qt. slow cooker. Add 1 (12-oz.) jar mild banana pepper rings, 1 (15-oz.) can beef broth, and 3 garlic cloves, minced. Cover and cook on Low 8 hours or until meat shreds easily. Transfer to a cutting board, reserving liquid in slow cooker. Shred roast; return to slow cooker. Keep warm on Low. Preheat oven to 350°. Place tortilla chips on a baking sheet; top with shredded beef, 1 (15-oz.) can black beans, rinsed; chopped tomatoes, finely chopped onion, and shredded Monterey Jack cheese. Bake 10 minutes. Serve with cilantro, avocado, and sour cream.
