Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

"I have had this recipe for so long I don't remember where I got it but I have handed out the recipe many times. Nice meal to let cook all day and the flavor is great. I usually double the recipe for some great leftovers. I have also added onions but DH prefers recipe without them. Sometimes with the leftovers we will put on top of mashed potatoes instead of bun."

    Oh my, did this make a very tasty roast beef sandwich! The beef was tender and falling apart when we got home at lunch time. We topped some good crusty rolls with the hot beef, slices of Mozzarella cheese and some fresh chopped basil. Since I cut the recipe in half, the kids and I had a difficult time saving some beef for Dad who can't have gluten. He thoroughly enjoyed the beef along with some baby new potatoes for dinner. Thanks happynana for this very tasty recipe. I will definitely add it to the keeper file. Made and reviewed for the 30th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

    I didn't follow this exactly, but close. It was very good, and made the best sandwiches. Give it a try!

    Fabulous - easy and tasty. The aroma alone is reason to make this. My honey loves anything with pepperoncini in it, so this was for him. I used the pepperoncini liquid as suggested. It wasn't the moistest meat, but the flavor was excellent, and on it's second go-'round I barely roasted garden-plum tomatoes and topped the beef with them. Good on a 'weck roll. Thanks for this recipe, happynana!


I am a real estate agent along with my husband, Mike. I enjoy meeting people and helping them sell or find a home. I have been happily married for 27 years. We have 1 daugther and 3 grandsons. My favorite recipes are from Paula Deen. I love to cook and eat -- that is why I workout 5 to 6 times a week. I enjoy Bible study, cooking, working out at the gym and reading. My husband and I love spending time with our grandsons who live about 45 miles from us. We are quick to give Our Heavenly Father credit for all the wonderful blessings in our life. My pet peeves are greed and people who are always late. I love this site and it is so much fun. I have met many nice chefs while participating in the contests. I think it is unfair when chefs change an original recipe and then give a low rating. The way I will rate recipes: 5***** Delicious Recipes that we enjoyed and will want to have again and again. 4****Recipes that I would make again but make some changes. 3***Recipes that I would probably not try again without some major changes. I will not give a 1 or 2 rating as I know that the chefs that took time to enter the recipe felt it was deserving to share. I just have different tastes than them. <a href="¤t=curriedcurrajongs.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><img src=""><img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src=""><img src=><img src=""><img src=""><img src="">
