Description

A delicious slow-cooked beef that’s over toasted deli rolls. Perfect for a Superbowl party!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Beef Chuck Roast, 2.5 To 4 Pounds
  • 1 can Beef Consomme Or Beef Broth
  • 3 Tablespoons (heaping) Italian Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ cups Water
  • ½ jars (16 Oz) Pepperoncini Peppers, With Juice
  • Buttered, Toasted Deli Rolls

Preparation

Combine all ingredients in a heavy pot or dutch oven. Stir lightly to combine seasoning with the liquid.

Cover and bake in a 275 degree oven* for 5 to 6 hours, or until meat is fork-tender and falling apart. **If meat is not yet tender, return to oven for 30 minute intervals till it’s tender!**

Remove from oven. With two forks, completely shred all meat, leaving no large chunks behind. Serve immediately, or keep warm over a simmer on the stove.

May make the day before, then store in the refrigerator. Remove the hardened fat from the top before reheating.

Serve on buttered, toasted rolls. Top with cheese and melt under the broiler if desired. Serve with juices from the pot.

I was a little nervous when I pulled this out of the oven after five hours. I’d been so excited for so long to make it, because I love french dips, and I finally got the opportunity to make it. However, when I took off the lid to see my beautiful, falling-apart beef bathing in juice, I saw that… THERE WAS NO JUICE! None at all! Where on earth was all that juice that PW had in her picture?? I followed her instructions word for word and I ended up with a potroast, some scalded peppers, and all of my liquid evaporated :( Luckily, the meat was still pull-apart tender and I was able to add some hot water to the pot to get the stuff up from the bottom just to keep it moist on the stove and it was AMAZING on a buttered deli roll with some of the peppers and come mozz cheese. So. Good. Even my picky fiancee who “hates pot roast” thought it was pretty good once it was in sandwich form.

I will most likely make this again, but next time I might add more liquid before cooking :( I was looking forward to a nice bowl of juice to dip into, but it just didn’t happen.

My husband made this (lucky girl!) in the crock pot using all the same ingredients and let it cook for 6 hours. The sandwiches were wonderful and the seasoning is just right. Wow!

I made this for dinner last night. I buttered then grilled the bread in a pan to get a nice crunch, then topped the bread with the meat and provolone cheese. Put in the broiler for a few seconds. DELISH! Husband and teenager (and his friend) loved it. I will definitely make again. :)

I have made this recipe at least a dozen times and it never fails to get rave reviews. Leftovers parceled into small containers freeze well and are convenient when you just need a meal for one or two. DEFINITELY toast the buns w/ garlic butter before piling on the beef … amazing, amazing, amazing food. The house smells great once it starts cooking … your friends will be begging you for this recipe … TRUST ME!!

I made this today for my family and the meat was fabulous, however the Italian seasoning seemed too much for us…especially in the dipping juice. Maybe if I strained the drippings before dipping!

I have made (and shared) this recipe several times. Everyone always raves about it. This morning as I put it all in the crock pot, my husband commented that he was hoping that I was making it again soon – now that’s a true testament to a good dish!

Yum! We love the flavor and how tender the beef gets.

Finally tried this last night and my husband agreed, this recipe is a keeper. As another reviewer said, when the man says “you can make that again ANYTIME”, you know it’s good!
