Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

Brandi Kirkpatrick


So, I get sick of pulled pork (sorry) and I was "voluntold" to be the first to make the Christmas lunches for the teaching staff. I had seen various Chicago Italian Beef recipes and thought I would give it a try. This was a HUGE success! I personally like this meat with sauted onions, provolone, pepperoncini, homemade horseradish mayo, and AMAZING sub rolls. However, Romero (who has known me since I was knee-high to a grasshopper) said it was good enough to pair with tortillas and homemade salsa (which is a HUGE compliment)!
