Slow Cooker Easy Italian Beef
While shopping at my local grocery store I spotted some Louie’s Italian Beef Seasoning packets. I had never tried them before but I got to talking to a couple of other ladies right there in the spice aisle. They told me that a packet of this seasoning mix, a couple pounds of beef pot roast and a little water tossed in the slow cooker would yield an awesome pot roast sandwiches.
Seeing as how I am all about trying new recipes in my slow cooker (well duh!) I tossed a packet into my shopping cart, grabbed a pot roast from the butcher then got some buns from the bakery and decided that Italian beef sandwiches were going to be on the menu!
I was surprised to see that when the Italian beef was done cooking, the juice was nice and thick and had a great flavor. It was almost gravy like which I just thought was so cool and my family really thought this was some of the best beef sandwiches that I have ever made.
The pot roast came out so tender and it was super easy to shred for sandwiches. I served this Italian beef with a nice crisp garden salad and some baked potatoes for a lovely dinner.
If your store does not carry Louie’s Seasoning it is easily purchased online at Amazon.
