Your crockpot makes this Beef Caesar Salad a breeze to make on busy nights. Flavorful, slow cooked beef is served on a bed of healthy greens. This is a super easy, versatile weeknight dinner!
If you are looking at this recipe thinking I’ve gone a little cuckoo, just hear me out. I know putting pot roast on a salad might sound a little odd, but think of taco salad or fajita salad with beef. That doesn’t sound weird, right? Ain’t nothing wrong with beef on a salad! This beef is slow cooked with caesar dressing, and the salad is drizzled with more caesar dressing, so it is very flavorful and satisfying.
Have you ever wondered why Caesar salad is named that? I was sure it must have something to do with Julius Caesar, but I was so wrong. It was created in the 1920’s by an Italian immigrant chef, Caesar Cardini, in a restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico! (source: Wikipedia) I’m glad it took off so we can still enjoy it today!
If you aren’t in the mood for salad, you could serve this meat over rice or on a sandwich with a salad on the side. I love slow cooked roasts because they are so versatile! Sometimes I don’t want to have the same meal for leftovers, so you can use the meat in a totally different way the next day.
