DIRECTIONS

  • Cut beef into fist size pieces and put into crockpot.
  • Add au jus mix (dry), italian seasoning mix (dry), french onion soup mix, beer (optional) and onion flavored beef broth to crockpot.
  • Stir until all seasonings are well incorporated.
  • Cover and cook on high for about 3 hours.
  • For very robust flavor, pour the entire jar of pepperocini's with the juice into the crockpot.
  • Do not drain, the vinegar in the juice helps tenderize the beef and gives a good flavor.
  • For a more mild or less tangy flavor, remove the seeds and stems from the peppers and use half of the vinegar. I PREFER THIS TASTE. It will still have lots of flavor, just not quite as spicy.
  • Cover and continue to cook on high for 2-3 hours.
  • Cut onions into small strips (slices) and add to crockpot.
  • Cover and cook until meat begins to tenderize and fall apart (about 2 hours).
  • Remove the beef and tear (shred) into small pieces.
  • Return beef to crockpot and continue cooking until meat is done and onions are soft which is usually about 2-3 more hours.
  • I've tried them all and this is my personal favorite because of the flavor and the bread doesn't get as soggy.
  • Sliced provolone cheese is completes the sandwhich.
