Italian Beef

READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
Recipe by JoAnn

We enjoy slicing the roast as for a traditional roast beef, but many enjoy it shredded and piled high on buns. Great flavor and your house will smell wonderful as it cooks.

Very good. Made this in the crockpot (6-8 hours on low). As suggested, I shredded the beef and added garlic. Wonderful. A neighbor made this using pork and it was even better than the beef.
