Italian Beef in the Crock Pot

You all picked up that I'm on a Pantry/Freezer/No Spend Challenge for April, right? I didn't make THE announcement but did 'casually' mention it during the menu plan a week or so ago ... and well, I've got this lovely hunk of beef in the garage freezer taking up a LOT of space ... so why NOT make this really yummy, super easy crock pot recipe! 


Italian Beef Crockpot

I didn't realize this was tied until AFTER I pulled it out of the crockpot!

I'm actually surprised that I've never shared this recipe here as often as we make it so now is the time to share!!

It's so easy, it's not even funny. Just a heads up though, if you do NOT like your food spicy, then do NOT dump the juice in from the pepperoncinis!




Are you ready to get this super duper, yummy recipe underway? Here's what you need:

3 lbs or so of beef roast, sirloin, whatever you have on hand (never have used ground beef though) ... I had this nice hunk of beef in the freezer
small jar of pepperoncinis (save yourself some work and get the pre-sliced ones - you can find these by the pickles - drain if a bit of you don't like it hot or all) ... I buy mine at Aldis since they are like half the price as regular grocery store ones
1/2 cup or so of beef broth (or you can use water and beef bouillon or cube)
about a tsp of chopped garlic
a tsp of oregano
a tsp of black pepper

Put roast in crock pot. Add all the rest of ingredients (drain the pepperoncinis if you don't want it hot)
Place lid on crock and fire it up. Let it cook 6 to 8 hours. 

Shred beef (when it pulls apart with little effort, that's when I know it's done) and serve on toasted rolls (ciabatti, hoagies, buns, etc.). We are using ciabatti rolls cuz thats what's in the freezer and well, we ARE on a Pantry/Freezer/No Spend Challenge right now ;-)

Top with a little juice from the crock pot and if desired, add a piece of provolone cheese ... really, really yummy!
