"Roast beef cooked in a slow cooker with garlic and pepperoncini makes a delicious and simple filling for gyro sandwiches. Serve on hoagie rolls with provolone or mozzarella cheese, and your choice of condiments. When making the sandwiches, place meat in rolls, cover with cheese, and zap in a microwave for a few seconds. Don't forget to use the pepperoncini in the sandwiches." — Joyce

beef chuck roast

Awesome dish! I have been meaning to rate and review this for some time now, only just now got around to it. This makes the BEST sandwiches! The only way I changed this was to add onions. I make my sandwiches using french bread,the meat, onions and peppers, slap on a piece of provolone cheese, stick it under the broiler long enough to melt the cheese and then use a dressing of sour cream and horseradish...It is to die for..
Thanks for a great recipe..
This tasted just like a regular roast to me? I mean it was good but that special flavor everyone is raving about was missing?? What did I do wrong? I followed the directions exactly! No one in my family thought it was out of the ordinary. Won't make this one again.
This recipe is sooooo good. Made exactly as stated. It was quite spicy so cut down on the peppers if you don't like too much heat. This recipe is a true "keeper". Also, many thanks to the reviewer who said to make quesadillas with the leftovers. They were the best quesidillas we ever had. We spread tortillas with low fat, canned re-fried beans then topped with beef mixture (including chopped peppers) and topped with cheese then folded over and pan fried till golden and put in oven while the others were being prepared. Served with sour cream, salsa and homemade guacamole.
This recipe made the best sandwiches possible. Everyone loved it. The juice is spicy, so I put it and the peppers in a separate bowl for those who wanted it. We used french rolls, covered the meat with grilled mushrooms and onions, topped it off with Jack Cheese and grilled it under the broiler. YUMMMMY! Don't pass this recipe up. Its a winner. Teresa
WOW - so simple and so delicious! This has to be one of the easiest and tastiest crock pot recipes I've made on this site! What's great about it too is it's very inexpensive and makes a lot. I used minced garlic from the jar and added about 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar to cut heat a bit and cover more of the roast. I also added two vidalia onions that I quarted and added half way through cooking. I cooked this on low for 8 hours and the smell was heavenly. We served this on toasted hoagie rolls with provolone cheese. Everyone loved it! Thanks Joyce for a great recipe!
This is a weekly staple at my house. Since only my husband and I eat this (it's too spicy for my 4 year old), I only buy a 1 pound roast (and it's usually an arm roast because we are picky about fat). I do not use the garlic, but I do add a package of McCormick AuJus and 1 cup of water one hour before serving. Also, before adding the mixture, remove roast from crockpot, shred and then put it back in. I cook it on high for 3 hours and low for about 6 hours. I love it and I'm not a big roast eater. It is always so tender, no knife needed!
I found this recipe for my mother, who was looking for something good,quick and easy to make with a chuck roast. This definitely fit the bill! Some may find the "kick" of the pepperoncinis a little too sharp, but no complaints in my family!
OMG AMAZING! I used a 12oz jar of pepperoncini, added 1 1/2c beef broth, and some dry onion flakes. Served on hoagie buns, lightly buttered, topped w/ the beef, onions, some juice (from the crock pot), and sliced cheese. We broiled it for apprx 3 minutes and then topped w/ lettuce. AWESOME! A hit with everyone! Thanks for sharing this great GREAT recipe Joyce!
