Crock Pot Italian Beef or Venison

Total Time

I love 5 ingredient or less recipes, and I also love smelling dinner when I walk in from work. A friend of mine used this recipe for a venison roast and said it was terrific!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -5 lbs roast
  • 4 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 (5/8 ounce) packet Good Seasonings Italian salad dressing mix
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar pepperoncini peppers (Greek)


  1. Put roast in crock pot.
  2. Add bouillon cubes and powdered dressing mix.
  3. Pour entire jar (do NOT drain) of peppers over roast.
  4. Cook 6-8 hours on HIGH.
  5. When roast is tender and falling apart, finish shredding (I just stick 2 forks in the crock pot and start pulling apart) and serve on fresh hoagie rolls.
  6. Delicious!

This was a super easy meal which my family wolfed down! I used the sliced pepperoncini, otherwise made as posted. Put a ladle full of 'juice' over the sandwiches. This will be on regular rotation in our home! Thanks for a great italian beef!

This was very good. Super easy (does it get any easier???). Had a mix of reviews from the 6 who ate it, but the average was 4 stars. I used the venison and cooked for about 8 hours on high. Meat was just pull-apart tender. We also cooked up some nice onions and mushrooms so people could have them "their way," and served with provolone. Thanks for a super easy one that I will come back to often. Will try with beef next time!

WOW!!! I made this a couple nights ago & my family RAVED about it! I toasted hoagie buns, added mozzerella cheese & put them under the broiler, & added sauted green peppers & onion. They are already asking when I'm making it again! Thank you, this was perfect!
