Do Italians really eat roast beef sandwiches like these? I really doubt it. I just chose to call it that because it's got Italian dressing in it. Clever, I know.
I saw several recipes (all in one day) of some sort of roast cooked with pepperoncini's in a crock pot with various other ingredients, then shredded up for sandwiches. I thought it sounded super and decided to try it myself. Instead of using the whole peppers like I had seen, I got sliced since my husband said he didn't really want stems in his sandwiches. Smart man!
Since I'm a fan of keeping it simple this only consists of 3 ingredients. The roast (it was a smallish one, just shy of 3 lbs I think), Italian dressing mix (about half the package), and about half the jar of pepperoncini's and half the juice. (I don't remember how big that jar is and I'm feeling too lazy to go look)
I put it in the crock pot at 9am on low, and by 5, it was more than ready.
I think we all enjoyed this (with swiss cheese on a toasted bun) and would definitely try it again.
I may be feeling like this little cold penguin on Saturday.
While most folks don't wish to see another flake of snow anytime in the near future(if all those facebook updates are any indication), we are purposely driving north this weekend to try to find some. It's for the children, ya know.
We hope to find some (small) hills to slide down, and a warm place to have some hot cocoa.
Wish us luck!
