Italian Beef Sandwiches II

READY IN: 3hrs 35mins
Top Review by misfit

These sandwiches were great! I only wish I could get my roast beef sliced as thin as the restaurants'. I used a 3 lb. roast, but kept the seasoning amounts the same and added a package of Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix. Too spicy and salty for some, maybe, but not for me. I used 3 cups of water, which left me with plenty of juice. The cooking time of 40 minutes per pound worked perfectly for a nice rare roast. Served on crusty rolls, with about three slices of provolone cheese and a plateful of french fries, this is a definite winner.
