Happy Father's Day Dinner for Wes

My sweet handsome hunk of a husband has been appropriately titled 'The Worlds Greatest Dad' as you can see below. He wore this shirt to the gun show on Saturday where a man tried to correct him, saying that he in fact held that title. Wes offered to fight him for it and the guy respectfully relented. To celebrate I made him this delicious meal. Oh and it was SUPER delicious!!! This is Wes's favorite meal his Mom used to make. Roast with au jus. The roast is the easy part, but the au jus is a little tricky. So I'm going to post it here so I won't forget. I've been forgetting things more and more lately.

3 to 3 1/2 pound Bottom Round Roast
Fresh Ground Pepper
16 ounces Beef Stock
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1/3 cup A1 Steak Sauce

Place roast in slow cooker. Cover roast with ground pepper. Add beef stock and worcestershire sauce. Top the roast with the A1. Cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or high for 4 to 6.

For Au Jus: Remove roast. Place cheese cloth inside a strainer and strain the liquid into sauce pan. Reduce in a sauce pan. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Can't wait to do this again!!!
