Slow Cooker Steak Sandwich

My husband and I recently issued a challenge - to ourselves: to eat all of the food in our freezer before buying more. We ate through chicken (thin, thick, and thighs), steak, tilapia, salmon, pork (marinated and not), a roast, and even a few Healthy Choice frozen meals. We got down to our last bag - steak tips - and a few hot dog buns. And to celebrate, by virtually not cooking at all, we threw the steak into the slow cooker with some onions, red wine and seasonings, set it on low and 8 hours later we had tender, shredable meat - just right for steak sandwiches. We simmered the sauce down on the stove top, drizzled it over the meat and onions, put the filling into toasted hog dog buns and voila - a steak sandwich and an empty freezer!
