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!

  3. If your roast is thawed, then cook on low for 9 hours.
  4. Sometimes about 2 hours ahead of being finished, I turn the crock-pot up to high from low just to make sure the beef is nice and tender.

Place the meat and pepper combo on a sandwich bun. Top with your choice of cheese, then place it all into a broiler to get the cheese nice and melty.

Use the juice that’s in the crock-pot for a dip with the sandwiches!
