Crock Pot Wednsday: Italian beef Sandwiches


This week I made Italian beef sandwiches on toasted hoagie rolls.  This dish is dead easy and a crowd pleaser.  I lie to serve with horseradish sauce and sweet potato fries on the side...the leftovers go great on noodles, on rice, on get the idea. Recipe and process after the jump...

 Start with one chuck roast...whatever side you need, but if it's really big you may want to double the sauce. Put it in the crock pot.

 Mix together 2 cups of beef stock

1/4 c apple cider

Italian dressing mix..

Onion soup mix

1 tbsp italian herb mix.

Mix together well..

and pour over roast.  Cook according to your crock pot's specifications.  I did mine 6 hours on medium.

When it's falling apart, take it out and shred it.

Throw it back in the broth with a cornstarch slurry of about 1-2 tsp cornstarch/ 1/4 c of water. Turn up to high and let it simmer while you do the rolls.
Butter a pack of rolls on the inside..Heat your pan on the stove until it's HOT!!

Toast on stove.

Serve your beef on the rolls...delish! Visit Dining With Debbie for more entries!
