Slow cookers are a great tool to have in the kitchen especially during the hot summer months. Using one makes it possible to have warm food without having a hot kitchen. It is a one pot wonder! For this recipe I used my trusty slow cooker along with some Lindsay Manzanilla Olives. These olives are grown in Spain and California and are often stuffed with pimentos. They are firm and have a slightly tart taste. At only 25 calories for 5 olives I think they dispel the notion of olives as a calorie laden food!
If you’ve got a potluck or a summer get together coming your way, this recipe comes highly recommended from the greatest of taste testers – my mom.
- 2-3 lb arm roast of beef (I use organic free-range)
- 1 cup of Italian dressing
- at least 1 cup of Lindsay Manzanilla Olives – use as many as you would like!
- 1 cup Lindsay Manzanilla Olives
- 4-5 springs of flat-leaf parsley
- 4-5 sprigs Cilantro
- 1 sprig of Basil
- 2-3 tbsp olive oil
