My husband's family always made Italian beef for family get togethers. I put this recipe together a lot of years ago when trying to make the perfect Italian beef for his family. This one became my go to recipe from then on! The flavor is delicious! I like to serve it on toasted hoagie buns with melted mozzarella over the top. You could top your Italian beef with giardiniera if you like, as is a traditional topping for this dish.

How to Make Italian Beef

Step-by-Step

  1. Place roast in slow cooker. In a pot combine water with wine, Italian dressing, salt, ground black pepper, Italian seasoning, onion powder, parsley, garlic, bay leaf, and green pepper. Stir well and pour over roast.
  2. Cover slow cooker and cook on Low for 12 hours or until beef is tender enough to easily shred with a fork. When done, remove bay leaf, and shred meat with a fork.
  3. If there is a lot of liquid, drain some off and set aside. Serve as a dip for sandwiches or extra sauce to spoon over meat.
  4. I serve this on toasted hoagie buns with melted mozzarella over the top.
