Cooking Instructions

Want to try making this irresistible Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwich at home? Here’s how:

  1. Start by trimming any large pieces of fat off a chuck roast.
  2. Cut the roast into seven or eight big hunks and place them in the bottom of a 6-quart crock pot.
  3. Sprinkle in a packet of gluten-free Italian Dressing Mix, such as Hy-Vee’s Good Graces brand or Simply Organic. If you don’t need to eat gluten-free, you can use Good Seasons Zesty Italian Salad Dressing Mix.
  4. Add sliced pepperoncini peppers, a splash of pepperoncini juice, and Chicago-Style Giardiniera (a pickled olive and vegetable relish packed in herbs and oils).
  5. Add beef broth, then place a lid on top and cook on low for 9 hours or until the beef can be easily shredded with a fork.
  6. Once the roast is shredded, put the meat back into the slow cooker and let it cook in the juices for 1 more hour on low.
  7. Scoop the flavorful meat onto hoagie buns and top with provolone cheese. The heat of the beef will melt the cheese perfectly.
  8. Serve with extra pepperoncini peppers and Giardiniera on the side.
