I had to make this slow cooker Italian Beef recipe when I saw it on My Kitchen Café. It was adapted from a recipe on allrecipes.com. The fact this was in a slow cooker and that Melanie at My Kitchen Café said it was more tender than any meat she cooked in the crock pot, sealed it’s fate. This turned out wonderful. The meat was flavor and tender. A definite must keep recipe.
The only complaint, it was quite salty. I will probably reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp next time or completely omit it. I also used bouillon for the broth, so that probably added to the saltiness. The whole family love it. Before I put the meat on the buns, I put some shredded mozzarella (didn’t have provolone) on half the bun and put them under the broiler. This made the cheese melty and the bun toasty with a little crispness. Yummy! Get your crock pot and give this a try.
