Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

This is a super easy recipe that is easily adjusted to suit your taste. It is great for entertaining, because it is simple and foolproof. This is a perfect dish for a football party. It is hardy and will feed a lot of people. You need a bun with a little substance, perhaps toasted, because it is juicy! I like to use some of the juice for dipping the sandwich into to fully enhance the goodness. This recipe is for a 4 pound or larger roast. If you cook a smaller one, I would suggest using half of the rest of the ingredients. Also you do not need to add salt. Learned that one the hard way, as I do most everything!

4 pound or larger beef roast, any kind will work, I prefer a sirloin roast
1 jar pepperoncini peppers, rough chopped, if desired, stems removed
1 package dry Italian Dressing mix (like Good Seasons, found in the salad dressing aisle by the ranch dressing mix)
I sometimes add a little fennel seeds, completely optional
Sprinkle the roast with the Italian Dressing mix and place in the crock pot.
Pour the jar of peppers on top, juice and all (I always remove the stems)
Cook on high for the first hour at least. If desired you can turn down to low after it gets started good.
Usually takes 6 to 8 hours to cook, depending on the size of the roast
Once it's finished place it into a serving dish and shred apart with two forks if necessary. Usually it is so tender this step is optional.
Grab some buns and maybe some provolone cheese and chow down! You will be amazed at how good and easy this is. Enjoy!
