Italian Beef Roast Sandwiches

beefroastsandSo this is now officially my new favorite way to do a roast.  Next time I am going to make this like a regular roast and use the dripping to make a gravy.  It is so incredibly flavorful and has a little bit of a kick to it.  Trust me, this Italian Beef Roast sandwich is a real husband pleaser!

  • Cook for about 6 hours, roast should easily shred, if not cook a little longer.
  • When the roast is done, shred the beef into the juice and pepperoncinis.

    What type of beef roast did you use for this? Do you think this would work in the crockpot?

    • Emily says:

      We used a chuck roast, but feel free to use whatever kind you like best. And yes! You can do it in the crockpot on high for about the same amount of time (check it at 6 hours).

        I have made this same recipe for several years in the crock pot. It is a family favorite. I always brown my meat coating it in flour, salt and pepper in a little oil on the stove before putting it in the crock pot. You will want to make plenty for left overs!

    about how many sandwiches does this make

    • Emily says:

      I’m guessing 8 to 10.

  3. DaNielle says:

    Do you cover the roast during cooking time? I am about to put it in the oven and am unsure.

    • Emily says:

      Yes, I covered mine, I will fix that on the recipe! Thanks!

    How much is 2 cans consommé? What is the difference between consommé and broth?

    • Erica says:

      It is approximately 4 cups (12-14 oz. each can). They are very similar– consomme is clarified and maybe slightly more reduced (rich)
