This was so delicious! My husband said this is his new favorite dish. I did make a few alterations. As others suggested; I used a chuck roast instead of rump roast and I did two packets of mix. I only used about 2.5 lbs of meat since it's only the two of us, but kept the ingredient amount the same. Instead of using water, I used 2 cups chicken broth (it's all I had) and 1 cup water. I'm going to try beef broth next time, but the chicken broth worked just fine.
After about 8 hours; I shredded the beef, removed the big hunks of fat, and threw in an onion (cutting the onion into long strips) and cooked for an additional 2 hours. After the two hours I sauted some bell peppers, still letting the meat cook for about another 30 minutes or so, taking my time knowing that longer cooking time means tastier meat. Once the bell peppers were ready, I put the meat on a french roll along with the peppers (and a few fresh banana peppers) some sharp provolone cheese and broiled in the oven for about a minute, just to get the cheese melted.
For anyone who tried the meat at 8 hours like I did, do not judge the meat yet. It was good, but I was unimpressed (and actually a little nervous it wouldnt be good) until after the shredded beef simmered for at least 2 more hours. I kept the slow cooker on "keep warm" and snacked on the meat the rest of the evening and it just got better and better. I didn't even use a fork at one point haha!
