Easy Italian Beef

This great slow-cooker recipe is a family favorite and is adapted from The Recipe Hall of Fame Cookbook.  If you want a flavorful, easy meal, I hope you give it a try!  I served it on Artisan Bread, found here

1 (3 to 4-pound) roast, such as chuck, arm or rump)
1 jar pepperochini peppers, juice and all (save some peppers for later)
1 can beer
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can beef bouillon
1/2 pkg. dry onion soup mix, optional

Combine all ingredients in a large slow cooker.  I save some of the pepperonchini to put on the sandwiches later.  Cook on high for 30 minutes; reduce heat to low and cook all day until meat is tender.

Remove meat from juices, slice thinly, or shred, and return to pot.  Serve on hoagie buns.  Top with some of the peppers and add some cheese, if desired.  Serve some of the juices in a separate bowl, for dipping.

  1. That sounds so good. I cooked a roast yesterday and I could probably use the leftover meat to make these! Yummy!

  2. I used to make a very similar recipe years ago when the boys were still at home. This makes great sandwiches! xo

  3. My mother learned a recipe like this from her Italian friend. It was always a family favorite but we poured the sauce on so the bread was soggy - I loved that. This is probably a better idea if people don't like soggy bread. Brings back fond memories of my mom!

  4. This reminds me of an Italian Hero sandwich I used to have when I was young in Astoria-Queens! Such memories of those days. Happy MOTHER'S DAY sweet lady.

  5. Must be something about this cooler weather, I made beef today too, and don't do it often.

    THIS recipe looks scrumptuous and I def plan on trying, thanks, Kitty!
