Mom’s Italian Beef Sandwiches


Over the holidays I went home to visit my Mom and she had cooked up some wonderful Italian beef sandwiches that we used to have all the time when I was growing up.  So when I was in Whole Foods this morning and saw that they are now carrying grass-fed beef I immediately called my Mom for that recipe.  I knew it was a crock pot recipe but had no idea how easy it would be to make – just 3 ingredients in a crockpot!

Crockpot Italian Beef

Put the following ingredients into a crockpot and cook on high for approximately 6 hours (or until the beef shreds easily with forks):
-approximately 2 lbs of a shoulder roast (trim a little of the fat from the sides)
-1/2 cup juice from a jar of pepperoncinis (I used Hungarian medium hot peppers instead)
-1 package of dried Italian salad dressing seasoning (I used about 2 Tbsp. of a dried Italian herb mix)

Shred the roast with forks and serve with sliced pepperoncinis on a bun of your choice.

I’ve been using my crock-pot a little more lately  because it’s so nice to have a nice hot meal ready to serve when I get home from work on these colder days this time of year. Do you have a favorite healthy crock pot recipe? If so, we’d love to hear about it. Leave it in the comments or send us an email.
