Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
This is a wonderful recipe that has garnered raves! Have made a few tweaks. I only add 2 packages of the Italian dressing mix and reserve the third, use beef broth in place of the water, and add 4 to 5 cloves of garlic before slow cooking. Once the beef is tender, I remove it from the slow cooker and shred it and mash the garlic cloves with it, adding enough of the cooking liquid and the reserved dry Italian dressing mix to taste (thus avoiding the "too salty" dilemma). I slice onions very thin and put in a shallow bowl with enough of the crock pot liquid to cover, put plastic over the top and nuke for 1-2 minutes (until tender) - great flavor! Melt provolone cheese on toasted rolls and serve with onions and pepperoncini - perfection! Thanks, Randi!
