Easy Italian Roast Beef for Sandwiches (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 10hrs 15mins
Recipe by Karen..

I came up with this after looking at everyone else's recipes and realizing I was missing at least one ingredient for every one I wanted to make. The result was the following and my family loved it.

I had a Pike's Peak Roast, a cut I had never done before and chose to make it this way because I thought the cut would benefit from a slow roast. Well the good news was that I loved this and thought it was fabulous especially served on rolls with a slice of provolone cheese. The bad news was that I was the only person in my family that felt that way. :-( I used a commercial dried tomato balsamic vinaigrette and it was simply smashing. I may try this again with the family; sometimes things just grow on them. I also might try serving it over rice or noodles because the sauce this stuff lives in is unbelievably good. Thanks, Karen, for sharing this tasty idea.
