Crock Pot Cheesy Italian Beef



Italian Beef Sandwiches are a Chicago staple and are as popular as Chicago Hot Dogs and Chicago Deep Dish Pizza. I love a good Italian Beef but top it with cheese? Well, that just takes it from good to great! There is a local pizza chain here in Chicagoland that makes Italain Beef Sandwiches that are then topped with sweet peppers and a layer of mozzarella cheese and then toasted until the cheese is brown and bubbly. They are so good and I wanted to recreate it at home. Such a simple recipe and it was a hit with the family!

Crock Pot Cheesy Italian Beef 
Makes Approx 6 Sandwiches

Ingredients
2-3 lb top round beef roast
1.5 Cups Beef Stock
2 tsp. dry Italian seasoning blend
1 large green pepper sliced
1.5 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
6 Italian Beef Bakery Rolls
Giardiniera and Sliced Roasted Red Peppers (Optional but I love the peppers)

Place roast into the crock pot. Add 1 cup beef broth and dry Italain Seasoning. One hour before the roast is done add the peppers to the crock pot. Shred beef with two forks and evenly divide among rolls. Top each sandwich with 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese. Broil 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve a side of au jus and giardiniera or red peppers if desired. Enjoy!

  2. This sounds easy and delicious! I have to make this. I know I can't find the good bread you have and that does make a difference in the taste of the sandwich. Thanks for sharing.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
