The easy to make Beef Dip features beautiful Alberta beef, slow cooked to perfection.
The province has over four and a half million head of cattle, compared to the population of roughly 3.931 million people we are out numbered by cattle. Agriculture has a significant position in the province’s economy with 44% of all Canadian beef being produced in Alberta! 44%. That is huge. Alberta is the largest cattle producing province in Canada. We export 35% of our beef to the United States and other countries.
I cook a lot of beef. My cousins all had 4H cattle growing up and my dad was a huge foodie with an fantastic backyard BBQ. When we had company over beef was always on the menu.
It is extremely versatile and you can prepare it 1000 different ways.
Below is just a small sampling of some of the beef dishes I love to create.
- 1 beef roast
- 2 cups of water
- ½ cup of soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning
- 1 tablespoon of dry onion flakes
- 1 tablespoon of granulated garlic
- pepper to taste
- 2 bay leaves
- Place roast in a slow cooker.
- Add the water, soy sauce and seasonings.
- Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours or until the beef is fork tender.
- Remove from the cooker and shred.
- Strain broth, skim of fat.
- Pour broth into small cups for dipping.
Using crusty rolls make the Beef dips with topping of your choice. I love a bit of sauteed red peppers and a bit of german butter cheese.
If you ever find yourself in Alberta, try the beef! Not only are you supporting the local economy you will be enjoying some of the best beef in the world!
