Slow Cooker French Dip

READY IN: 7hrs 10mins
Recipe by gailanng

Don't like sweet peppers? In their place, try a sprig of rosemary for more flavor. I've not added salt for fear some would think it too salty, but my preference is to salt lightly. The roast and juices are perfect for a New Orleans-style "roast beef on French". Great for football parties, etc. Can be made ahead, frozen and rewarmed.

Awesome recipe! It was great to just throw it in in the morning and have the meat fall apart when I got home and was ready to shred the meat. I made it with the peppers as we love them and it had great flavor. I have some leftover meat so I will use that to make homemade vegetable soup later on this week.
