Italian Beef Sandwiches

Here is a great recipe for Italian Beef Sandwiches. This recipe takes very little effort to make. This works best with a crock pot, but you can use an oven or even an iron skillet on your stove top. The recipe I use and am going to give you is for a crock pot. That is how I always make it. You can easily double or even triple it if you are feeding a crowd.

Italian Beef Sandwiches

3lb chuck roast
1-14.5oz can beef broth
1-beef bullion cube
1-pkg (0.7oz)Good Seasons dry Italian Dressing mix
2 T. Worcestershire sauce
salt and black pepper
2 t. oregano

Cook the roast in a crock pot on low for 8 to 10 hrs or until it easily pulls apart. When done, remove from crock pot and shred. Place shredded beef back in crock pot, add 1 can of beef broth, 1 bullion cube, 1 pkg of dry Italian dressing mix, oregano and 2 T. Worcestershire sauce. Mix well, cook on high for about 30 min. Serve on crusty Italian rolls.

I like to serve with sauteed red and green bell peppers and mushrooms. If you would like some extra au jus to dip, simply heat 1 can of beef broth with 2 beef bullion cubes. Heat thoroughly and make sure your bullion is well dissolved. A good side dish is a cold pasta salad or even a green salad.  Enjoy!
