My Italian Beef

Wow that title sounds naughty. Go me.

So I made one of the BEST DINNERS EVER last night. Itialian Beef. You cook it for 18-24 hours and it is so good that I imagine we are having it again VERY VERY soon. Here is the recipe...

3 1/2 pounds rump roast
12 ounces (jar) Italian Giardiniera drained
12 ounces (jar) pepperoncini peppers
1/2 bottle zesty Italian salad dressing
1 can beef broth


Cut fat off of roast. Place in slow cooker. Mix all other ingredients together, draining oil from giardiniera. I only used about 1/4 of the peppers and 1/2 of the juice from the bottle...as I didn't want it too spicy.

Add all ingredients to slow cooker and cover and cook for 18-20 hours on LOW. Meat will be very tender - can use a fork to pull apart. I served it with a salad and hard wheat rolls from Whole Foods. The rolls were great, but the meat was fantastic. It really won't matter what cut of meat you use - because it will be tender when cooked that long. Man, it was good!
