This is it! I'm from Chicago and since I do not live there now, I forever crave THE Italian Beef sandwich. Only Chicagoans know what I'm talkin' 'bout. This recipe is as close as it gets. I read the other reviews first and altered the recipe accordingly. I bought a 1.75 lb. chuck roast. I used 2 C of Beef stock instead of water, 1 packet of dry italian italian salad dressing mix, 1/2 jar of pepperoncini juice (served the peppers on the side), 3 bulbs of garlic and I threw in some italian seasoning and addt'l Oregano. I could not insult this recipe by putting it on a hamburger bun, so I found some great pane rolls at the bakery and they were perfect. I cooked on high for 4 hrs and 2 more hours on low. My husband said this was the best tasting roast meat he has ever had. I will be making this recipe again and again. Thank you!!!
