Print pagePDF page

3-4 pound beef roast
2 cans low-sodium beef broth
4 oz. (6-8 oz. if you want it spicy) sliced pepperoncini peppers
1 packet dry italian dressing mix (homemade recipe listed below or use store-bought envelope)
1 tsp. fresh minced garlic
kosher salt, to taste
1 package french rolls, or crusty bread
sliced pepper jack cheese

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Place beef roast in a large roasting pan (or in a slow cooker), then pour the beef broth over the top. Pour the pepperoncini peppers, including juice, over the top. Then sprinkle the dry italian dressing mix, minced garlic, and salt over that.

Cook for about 6 hours (if in slow cooker, cook on low 6-8 hours). Roast should easily shred, if not…. cook a little longer.

When roast is done, shred the beef into the juice and pepperoncinis.

Open the french rolls and place open face up on a cookie sheet. Layer one side of each roll with sliced pepper jack cheese. Place pan under the broiler on high until cheese starts to melt. Remove pan from oven and line each sandwich with shredded beef, using a large fork or slotted spoon.

Ladel out some beef juice into a small cup to use as au jus for dipping.

Homemade Dry Italian Dressing Mix (makes 1/2 cup)
** You probably only need about 2 dry heaping TB for this recipe though

1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
2 tablespoons salt

In a small bowl, mix together the garlic salt, onion powder, sugar, oregano, pepper, thyme, basil, parsley, celery salt and regular salt. Store in a tightly sealed container.

(To prepare dressing to use with salad, whisk together 1/4 cup white vinegar, 2/3 cup canola oil, 2 tablespoons water and 2 tablespoons of the dry mix. But with this recipe we are just using the dry mix by itself.)
