Italian Beef

Ingredient List

3ish Pounds of Chuck Roast

2 envelopes of Zesty Italian Seasoning

2 Cups of Beef Stock

1 Chopped Onion

3 Tablespoons Butter divided

3-4 Pepperoncini plus 2 tablespoons of juice


Provolone or Mozzarella Cheese

Who doesn’t enjoy a nice Italian Beef Sandwich? It is one of Tomithy’s favorite. We hunt for our favorite Italian Beef Sandwich Restaurant every time we hit Chicago. But since we aren’t going on vacation to Chicago any time soon, I will just make them at home. This recipe is great! Just throw it in the Crock Pot and go about your day. Here is how I made them.

I first chop one onion and throw it in the bottom of the crock pot.

Then I place the roast in the crock pot and sprinkle BOTH sides of the roast with this Italian Dressing Packet. (1 Packet per side)

Pour the Beef Broth over the roast and place the Pepperonicini and the juice over the roast. Then place the 2 tablespoons of butter on top of the roast. Turn the crock pot onto High and cook for 6 hours.

Now that the roast is cooked all the way, I remove the meat and put it in the bowl of my stand mixer. I throw the peppers away but you cant shred them in the with meat if you want the extra zip! Attach the paddle attachment to the mixer and let it do the shredding for you.

It does a wonderful job shredding the meat. I then take about a cup of the juice and mix it into the meat so it doesn’t dry out.

I take the last tablespoon of butter and smother the Baguette

I then toast the Baguette on a skillet.

I then top the bread with meat and cheese and place it in the broiler.

Now that the cheese is nice and melted, take some of the juice that the meat was cooked in, and pour it over the top of the sandwich.
