Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

I love my Slow Cooker, it is one of my most used kitchen appliances. I got one for Christmas a couple years ago and that made my Christmas.


Good bye to my old one and hello to this new slow cooker that has a timer. I can set it for 6 hours and leave, go to work, and come home 8 hours later and it is magically set on warm. The best part is I will no longer come home to an over cooked meal of chicken or beef.  Every meal will be cooked for the time I set once that is reached, then the slow cooker sets it to warm until I get home.

This is such an easy recipe all you need is 4 ingredients Beef Round Top Roast, Dry Italian Dressing mix, 1 jar of pepperoncini sliced, and whole wheat submarine rolls.

When buying Beef round top roast I have 2 tips. One is to buy it when it is on sale and buy extra so you can have it saved in your freezer for when you need a quick meal to put together. If you cannot find Beef Round Top Roast then find another lean cut roast for a reasonable price. Second make sure to cut off all excessive fat that you can see which will help reduce the fat in the meal and help keep the juice in your slow cooker from not turning so greasy.

Inside the Crock pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

Place the Beef into the center of the slow cookert. On top of the beef add the dry Italian dressing I like to rub it in with a spoon and create a crust on top of the beef (you can also rub the whole roast with the dressing if you want to I just do this in the slow cooker to make it less of a mess to clean up afterwards).

Then pour the pepperoncini peppers around the beef until the jar is empty. With cooking the pepperoncini’s for 8 hours it will help reduce the heat and make them more enjoyable for everyone else. Set for 8 hours and go about with your plans for the day.

Once the beef has cooked for 8 hours take off the lid and shred the meat with 2 forks. I like to put the meat back into the juice and leave it on warm until we are ready to eat. If you are ready to eat shred the beef and let it cook for about another 15-20 minutes this will make sure all the beef soaks up all the yummy Italian dressing and the pepperoncini flavor. This recipes is also great for leftovers as well we will eat on this for 2 or 3 days straight we love it so much. Hope you enjoy your sandwiches as much as we did 🙂
