Growing up in Chicago I'd like to say I know all there is to know about Italian Beef Sandwiches. I grew up eating them and they have always been a staple for parties or tailgates. This sandwich is known as a Cheesy Beef. Basically an Italian beef topped with cheddar cheese and then broiled for the cheese to get all metly. I wanted to re create that sandwich but decided to cook the meat in the crock pot. Well, let me tell you...these sandwiches are insanely good! If you like Italian beef then you have got to give these sandwiches a try!
Cheesy Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches
2-3 lb bottom round beef roast
1 Cup Beef Stock
1 packet Italian Salad Dressing Mix ( I used Good Seasons)
1 large green bell pepper, sliced
1 loaf crusty french bread
shredded cheddar jack cheese
Place roast into the slow cooker. Add 1 cup beef broth and Italian salad dressing mix. About two hours before the roast is done add the peppers to the slow cooker. Shred the meat and place on french rolls. Top each sandwich with 1/2 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese. Broil for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling. Serve with a side of au jus. Enjoy!
