Slow Cooker Roast Beef Po Boys With Debris Gravy Recipe @pinch

Traditional Louisiana po' boy sandwiches vary by what area you are visiting, and this twist on a roast beef po' boy sandwich is delicious. Making a darker roux for the debris gravy is traditional to Louisiana cooking. For a slow cooker dish, this is made with love and takes a little time. The roast beef is cooked to tender perfection, shredded, and then coated in the dark, rich gravy. Use crusty French bread or a hoagie bun to hold the flavorful shredded beef. Adding mayonnaise, lettuce, and pickles makes for a delicious sandwich. You can even use a jalapeno mayo for a little kick. The first time I ever had a po' boy was in NOLA. This recipe is just as good if you can't get there. It is so tasty and yummy. I can't believe how good it is. I made it for my family, and they loved it. They couldn't get enough. Make sure you have enough napkins around! This recipe is perfect to make in the slow cooker for those days you are just too busy or It is too hot outside. I hope you enjoy it!

  • Pour liquid from the pan into the slow cooker. Cook on high for 6-7 hours until the meat is tender
  • When the meat has finished cooking, remove the meat to a plate and cover it with foil
  • Pour the liquid from the Crock Pot into a measuring cup and skim the fat off the top. Discard any remaining fat pieces. Mix in the red wine vinegar and water
  • In a saucepan, melt butter. When it begins to bubble add flour. Stir to create a roux. It should be between a blonde and a brown roux
  • Pour the liquid into the roux whisking to ensure no lumps. Simmer until thickens

  • To assemble the sandwich, place the desired amount of mayonnaise on bread. Place layer of meat and gravy, followed by lettuce, thinly sliced tomatoes, pickles, and hot sauce (if desired).
