Italian Beef Sandwiches

I love Italian Beef.... flavorful,yummy, juicy and oh so delicious.  What is Italian Beef you ask?  It is a big beef roast, cooked in delicious broth & seasonings cooked with garlic & onions served on crusty rolls dipped in a little of that delicious aj-jus juice... YUM 
I serve these with carmalized mushrooms on them as well ( just saute sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil, butter and sprinkle them with salt & pepper, cooking until they are brown and caramlized.  YUM  I also serve these with pepperconi peppers on the good..

I always buy a very big roast so I can make beef vegetable soup with the leftovers.  Just add extra broth/water, frozen mixed vegetables, and cook the egg noodles right in the broth.  Serve with rolls and sprinkle with a little parmesan cheese.. so good. 
Try these today, your family will love them.  Enjoy

Italian Beef Sandwiches

3-4 lb beef roast
1-2 onions, peeled and sliced very thin
1 can beef broth
2 packages Good Seasons dry Italian salad dressing mix
2-3 cloves garlic, smashed
crusty rolls
Sauteed mushrooms & pepperocini peppers (optional)

In crockpot place 1/2 the broth and 1 package of the Italian salad dressing, stir well.  Add onions and garlic stirring to coat onions with the seasoning mixture.  Add the roast on the top.  Sprinkle roast with the seasonings and pour the remaining broth over the top.  Cook on high for 5-6 hours or until the meat is falling apart, or 7-8 hours on low.  With a fork shred the meat mixing it into the broth and onions.  Serve meat on crusty rolls (with mushrooms & pepperocini optional).  Serve the broth on little bowls to dip the sandwich in while you devour it :)  Enjoy
