Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

"I found this recipe on, and made changes which are included. I've also added my own recipe for sandwiches using the beef. Make sure to drain the beef before putting it on the buns, and you can freeze the broth to use for a later purpose."


2 1/2 beef broth
1/2 cup red wine
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoon onion salt
2 teaspoon dried parsley
2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 bay leaves
2 (.7 ounce) packages dry Italian-style salad dressing mix
1 (2-3 pound) chuck roast


Combine beef broth and wine with salt, ground black pepper, oregano, basil, onion salt, parsley, garlic powder, bay leaf, and salad dressing mix in a saucepan. Stir well, and bring to a boil.
Place roast in slow cooker, and pour broth mixture over the meat.
Cover, and cook on Low for 8 hours, remove bay leaf, shred meat with a fork, place back in slow-cooker and cook an additional 2 hours.

Jen's Italian Beef Sandwiches:


6 sub buns
6 slices provolone cheese
1/2 lg onion cut in long thin slices
1 green pepper cut into long thin slices
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon honey
miracle whip
shredded beef from above recipe


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut sub buns in half lengthwise. On top halves of buns place one slice provolone cheese each. Put onto large baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes in oven. Meanwhile, melt butter in large frying pan. Saute onions and peppers until soft. Drizzle honey over the onions and peppers and continue to cook until they caramelize. Make sandwiches using the beef, peppers and onions, and a thin layer of miracle whip.
