Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches Recipe

Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches Recipe

This slow cooker recipe for Italian Beef Sandwiches is so easy. I love a recipe that lets me throw a hunk of beef in a slow cooker without a lot of fussing around with it. Sure, there’s times when I break out the more time-consuming slow cooker recipes that include browning meat and de-glazing pans but sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. With this recipe for Italian beef that slowly cooks all day long in your small appliance, you won’t even believe how simple it is. You know what else you won’t believe? How incredibly tender and juicy this is. It is one of the best Italian beef sandwiches I have ever had!

I highly recommend taking the time to make the Zesty Italian Dressing Recipe and the French Bread Recipe for your Italian Beef Sandwiches. It makes the meal, adding so much to the slow cooker Italian beef and is not time consuming at all. You can have the French bread recipe baking while the roast beef is finishing up. I promise that it is so, so worth it. That bread recipe is the bomb diggity. It’s buttery and pairs amazingly well. You could use some sort of bottled dressing recipe but it takes so little time to make your own that you might just be surprised! Again, all of these recipes use ingredients that are typically found in any well-stocked kitchen.

When you combine this beef with those things…well, this Italian Beef Sandwiches slow cooker recipe is  just out of this world! Dinner  doesn’t have to be junk food. It’s easy to make soul satisfying dishes with the aid of your slow cooker. It does far more than roasts and soups, you know! It is another winning recipe from The Stay at Home Chef, a previously featured Indiana Blogger that shares all sorts of yummy recipes.
