Peperoncini Beef Sandwiches


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2.5 lbs beef roast (buy whatever’s cheapest and gives you the most meat)
  • 1/2 (or more) of a 16oz jar peperoncinis (I sometimes buy deli-sliced)
  • 1c beef broth
  • salt and pepper
  • sandwich buns*
  • cheese, grated or sliced (go for mozzarella, provolone, swiss or another great cheese)*
  • optional: extra peperoncini slices for serving

Instructions

  1. Trim any visible fat from your roast. Place in the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in half a jar worth of peppers (don’t include all the juice, just pick out the peppers). If you want a bit more heat, add a few tablespoons of the pepper juice to the crock pot. Pour in beef broth. Cook on low 7-8 hours.
  2. Shred beef, removing any fatty bits. Slice peppers and mix into beef.
  3. For best serving results, toast buns, fill with beef/pepper mixture, and top with cheese and a few extra peperoncinis. If necessary, pop the sandwiches in the oven for a minute or two to melt the cheese.
  4. Savor the goodness.

Notes

*For a gluten free version, be sure to use gluten free buns. For dairy-free, just skip the cheese. No big deal!
