Italian Beef question.

Which roast be better for this crock pot recipe I have, chuck or rump roast? The last couple times I've made it, I shred the meat. I would rather slice it.

I use chuck for braising. If your roast shredded, it means you probably cooked it too long. Back off the cooking time a little and see what happens.

Chicago style Italian beef is made with rump or round roasts, but they are oven cooked, not braised.

It's hard to sliced braised meats

I think a nice rump or top round roast would be your best bet for Italian beef. Oven roasted to medium rare!! No more than medium rare!!! ~~ Rest it for 20-30 minutes and slice thinly!

Enjoy!
