These Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches are the best recipe you'll ever taste in a crockpot. SO Easy and SO good – try them!
Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches – You won't believe how EASY these are to make!
I have a problem. Every single time that I see a shoulder roast at anything near a decent price, I just have to make these Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches!
I know I should be way more creative, spend hours visiting Pinterest looking for something else to cook with that bargain beef, and then spend hours cooking it up. But since this beef tastes perfect as you taste-test it right out of Mrs. Potts, even better as you enjoy it on a sandwich at dinner time, and is best for leftovers the next day, I figure you'll humor me on this one more time. Seriously, what other recipe does that for you?
Several years ago, when we were also having baked potatoes for dinner, my hubby decided to try the beef out on his potato which was also fantastic, and I'm thinking the meat would taste oh-so-good even on a tortilla drizzled with some mozzarella cheese. Mmmm, mmmm, mmmmmm!
Menu Planning Note: You can also find this recipe in our Slow Cooker Menu Planning Made Easy Set!
I originally got the recipe from my mother-in-law (hence us calling this “Jennie's Italian Beef” in our household).
All you have to do is to make it is dump your roast and peppers in the crockpot in the morning, and let your slow cooker do the work for you.
So, if you have a crazy busy family night, this one is a perfect addition to your menu plan.
But, it's also yummy enough to serve when company is coming, and a great meal idea if you have friends or family visiting and are looking for an easy delicious recipe that will impress everyone! It would also make a great recipe for Super Bowl Sunday this week. Can you tell I like this recipe?
If you haven't made this one yet, try it out for me . . . I'd love to hear what you think! And, if you're worried about it being a little too spicy, you can drastically reduce the spiciness by carefully removing the peppers after cooking without letting them open, and using a turkey baster to remove about half of the juices while it simmers in the Au Jus mix. I promise. . . you'll be glad you made this one!
