Fill It And Fuhgettabout It ~ Crock Pot Italian Beef

Fridays are perfect crock pot days. We don’t get home until about 7pm and it’s nice to have something ready for dinner without a lot of fuss. I love that you can fill your crock pot with a few ingredients, turn it on and literally forget about it.

Tonight it was Italian Beef on soft French rolls.

Turns out 100% of the family approved!

I poured in one 12 ounce can of 55 calorie Budweiser Select {classy, I know or you an substitute 1.5 cups of beef broth}, the juice of a 12 ounce jar of pepperoncinis, several actual pepperoncinis and one packet dry Italian dressing seasoning {like Good Seasons}. Mix those ingredients, add your meat  {I used a really lean 3 pound beef rump roast} and set it on low for 8.5 hours. I chose to add a slice of provolone on top and stick it under the broiler for a minute or two. You can also serve with chopped giardiniera {pickled peppers, cauliflower,carrots, jalapeños, etc.} and use the juice for dipping like a French dip…I guess it would be an Italian dip then, right? Next time I will chop the meat into smaller pieces, but overall this meal was magnifico ~ suuuuuper easy AND the whole family approves? How often does that happen?

The happiest of Fridays to you!
