Crock*Pot Italian Beef - Pinterest Pick #9

OK, I'll admit it, I have been slacking with this blog for the last few weeks.  To be honest, I am so tired from being back at the office.  Hopefully I will be back home telecommuting again soon and will be able to bring you more recipes.  In the meantime, I did make a great dish this weekend!  It was another combo of slow cooker and Pinterest, and the results were delicious.  I can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch today.  Few ingredients, little prep... And super tasty!
Find the original recipe HERE and the original pin HERE.  I made a few adjustments, but nothing major.  Serve the beef on a sandwich, over noodles, over rice, with potatoes... Very versatile!

Crock*Pot Italian Beef

  • 1 lb beef stew meat
  • 1/2 jar of pepperoncini
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1 packet Italian dressing seasoning
  • salt and pepper

*** hoagie rolls, mayo, and sliced provolone if making my sandwiches

Place beef in slow cooker.  Add salt and pepper (I eyeball these, use about a teaspoon each).  Add Italian dressing mix.  Toss beef with spices well until each cube is coated.  Pour half the jar of peppers, including juice, into slow cooker.  Dissolve bouillon cube in chicken broth and pour into slow cooker.  Stir well.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4.  Discard peppers and shred beef.  
*To make sandwiches:
Spread mayo on roll.  Place on cheese slices.  Top with beef.  Add giardiniera (a mix of carrots, cauliflower, celery, etc) or fresh pepperoncini if desired.
