Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a crock pot combine all of your ingredients (except for the rolls and giardinara) and let it cook on low for 8 hours until the meat is tender and falling apart.
  2. Remove the meat from the au jus and shred it with a fork until it is finely shred.
  3. Return the meat to the crock pot full of au jus to get warm for 20 minutes.
  4. After the meat is warmed, fill the buns with meat, ladle or dip the sandwiches with au jus.
  5. For Chicago authenticity, add hot or mild giardiniera to the sandwiches or the sweet green bell peppers.
