My boyfriend and I thought this was awesome. I cannot comment on if it tastes like italian beef because I have never had it, but it was really great as a sandwich. I know everyone has their own personal tastes, but I have read several reviews that say this is bland even when they use the beef broth and the extra seasoning packet. I may have a suggestion on how to make the meat more flavorful. Each time I have made this, I always cook it overnight for about 8 hours, then shred it when I wake up, put it in the fridge before I leave for work, and then warm it back up when I get home. I know that kind of takes away from the convenience of having something ready and hot when you get home, but I can almost guarentee this will not be "lacking flavor" if this is done. Maybe the meat just needs to marinate in its shredded form to get the flavor into the meat. Just a suggestion. Very tasty, thank you for sharing. We like ours with provolone cheese, jalepenos, and banana peppers. Sometimes I will saute onions and green peppers... lots of toppings you can use for this!
