They are kind of addicting...I have three (6qt and 2-2 qt), but I usually use them for pot lucks at work. Oooh! This recipe would make dayshift my slaves...

Frank, I was looking online to earn more about Italian Beef sandwiches and found this site: Home of the Italian Beef

It has a wealth of information on the subject way beyond recipes.

Enjoy.

This stuff is gooooooood... oh goodness.. why haven't I made this before?

What are you eating for football?
Frank! You used a crockpot? So you made "fake" Italian beef then eh?

I watched part of both games (was kinda hoping for the SeaHawks as they are just south of us but knew their luck had probably run out).

I had myself a delicious pulled pork sandwich from our potluck meeting earlier in the day.

Sometimes it takes time to get good food, this is one of them.

The meat was tasty, flavorful, moist and not at all greasy tasting.

I would do this one again. I am gonna freeze a good chunk later on.
Looks good - might make my rump roast and gravy obsolete.
I wonder how this would work with a chuck roast?

Chuck roast would work fine. Any braising beef will be good.

Yeah... at least I didn't use the crockpot then claim it was BBQ.

I don't remember ever doing that! The fact I took it to the luncheon IN a crockpot kind of gave things away. I also made my own BBQ sauce (always do) so that helps it along as well.

Oh, I will try your recipe....sounds very good. Want my pulled pork one?

I've had other Italian beef sandwiches and they were good, but this one tasted amazing by comparison. Frank topped the sandwiches with provolone cheese and sauteed onions, green peppers, and crimini mushrooms. He added some banana pepper rings to his. Da BEARS winning was a perfect ending to this meal. :)

I'm going to press for this again for the Superbowl.
