You can use water as in the recipe. Or, you can substitute beef broth or beef stock. Added flavor never hurts, right?

Serves:

6 normal folk

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

8 Hr

Method:

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

3-4 lb
boneless chuck roast
1 c
water
16 oz
pepperocini
16 oz
giardiniera
1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
fresh ground pepper
1 Tbsp
italian seasoning
2 Tbsp
chopped garlic

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut the roast into 3-4 piece and lightly salt and pepper the chuck roast. Turn the burner on and place a skillet large enough to hold the roast on that burner to get hot. When hot, coat with 2 tablespoons of oil.

put the roast in the skillet and brown evenly on all sides about 2-3 minutes per side.
2
Transfer roast into the crock pot. Add the remaining ingredients, juices and all, to the crock pot. Put the lid on, turn it on low and cook for 6-7 hours or until the meat shreds easily with a fork.
3
Take out the roast and shred with two forks or bear claws. Place back in crock to cook for another 1/2 hour or so.

I serve this on toasted loaves of French or Italian bread, cut into 6 inch sections. You can use hard roll (Chicago hard rolls, Kaiser rolls, etc). You can use French bread rolls, too. I also put a slice or two of provolone on the roll before I put the meat on.
