“Easy to put together, delicious in a dish or on a sandwich, it's hard to find meals this good for so little effort. My grandparents gave me this recipe when I moved out on my own, as part of a binder full of my favorite meals, and now it's often requested by by husband and son.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the roast in your crock pot.
  2. In a small saucepan, mix first 8 ingredients (broth through dressing mix) and bring to a boil.
  3. Pour the boiling mixture over the roast, quickly put the lid on to trap in the heat.
  4. Cook on high for one hour, then either turn on low for the next 7 to 11 hours (more time for larger roasts) or keep on high for 3 to 5 hours.
  5. 30 to 60 minutes before completion of cooking, add onions and peppers. Re-lid, and cook remainder of time.
  6. When done, remove roast to a large dish or bowl and shred meat with forks, making sure the bay leaf didn't also transfer over.
  7. Serve either on a plate or use segments of the crusty bread cut horizontally to make sandwiches (recommended).
  8. Top with sliced provolone, which should melt somewhat from the heat of the beef, and /or pepperoncini if desired.
