Crockpot Mini Italian Beef Sandwich

Crockpot Mini Italian Beef Sandwich


1 3lb Chuck Roast
2 Green Peppers, Cut Into Wide Strips
2 Red Peppers, Cut Into Wide Strips
2 Large Onions, Sliced
5 Smashed Garlic Cloves
Oregano, Mustard Seed, Red Pepper Flake, Celery Seed, Black Peppercorns (To Taste)
The Green Part of a Whole Fennel Bulb
Enough Flavorful Liquid to Cover All the Ingredients (Wine, Stock, or it you must, Water)

Trim the roast of fat and connective tissue. Drop everything into a slow cooker on low, and let it cook until the meat shreds easily.

Serve on a mini French roll with the peppers and onions from the pot. Serve with jalapenos if you like a little more heat, a fennel and carrot slaw on the side, and some the liquid from the pot for dipping.

That's a good one. I was wondering what I could do next with my crock pot and one of the roasts I had in the freezer. Thanks.

looks good, dan. i've been wanting to try an authentic chicago italin beef sammy.

dan, do you brown (or sear) your roast first? i always do that to meats when later putting it into the crockpot. also, the liquid that goes into the cp is used to deglaze the meat searing vessel.

whaddya think? good or bad idea for your recipe?

tia.

btw, i love the idea of using the green parts of fennel. do you chop or dice it as you would celery?

Searing and deglazing will should give it more flavor just takes more time. When I did this I was looking for real quick and easy.

This is very similar to my CP dish/recipe. I like the addition of the fennel. I serve it with shredded mozzarella and giardiniera. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
