Crock-Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches
Warm, comforting, shredded Italian beef cooked in the Crock-Pot with peperoncini. Serve on crusty French rolls with melted provolone cheese.
- 3 pounds boneless beef chuck roast
- 2 cups low sodium beef broth
- .7 ounce package Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing and Recipe Mix
- 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 16 ounce jar pepperoncini stems removed and cut in half
- ⅓ cup liquid from pepperoncini jar
- 8 sandwich rolls
- 8 ounces sliced provolone cheese
- 8 tablespoons softened butter or butter spread
Slow Cooker Instructions
Cut the roast into 4 large chunks. Trim the fat from the edges of each chunk with a sharp knife and transfer them to the slow cooker.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the beef broth, salad dressing mix, and Italian seasoning. Pour the mixture over the roast in the slow cooker. Toss in the pepperoncini and ⅓ cup of the liquid from the jar.
Cover, and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours. When the meat is very tender and easy to shred, grab two forks and shred the meat into the cooking liquid.
Set your oven to BROIL. Split open and spread the sandwich rolls with the softened butter and place them on a baking sheet. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and toast the rolls for about 2 minute or until toasted and lightly browned (watch closely to avoid burning). Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
Use tongs to transfer the shredded beef and peppers to the toasted buns. Top sandwich each with a slice of provolone. Return the baking sheet to the oven to melt the cheese.
