There is nothing simpler, or healthier than throwing something in the crock-pot for dinner. When the kids have sports or club activities, I turn to he crock-pot and it saves me so much time and effort! My favorite crock-pot recipe is soooo simple and easy to do. It takes basically three ingredients to make Italian Beef Sandwiches– A beef roast, a jar of roasted red peppers and a jar of pepperoncinis.

If you want to add to the recipe, it’s totally flexible and comes out delicious every time!
