we make this when we're feeling lazy and hosting guests. but honestly, it tastes awesome, we get compliments from everyone on it, and it couldn't be easier!
Italian Beef crock pot style
1 beef roast 3-4lbs (we buy what's on sale. the butcher can help suggest a cut)
4 envelopes of italian dressing mix (you can buy a box of 4 sometimes)
1 can beef broth
throw the roast in the crock pot, add 1 can of broth and 4 packets of seasoning. add water until liquid comes up half of the roast.
set on low and let it cook for 8 hours. (we set ours up before we leave for work)
when it's all done, the meat will shred apart (i use tongs to do this).
i eat mine on a bun dipped in the broth and a lot of peppers. mmmm...so tastey!
serve it with fries, chips, coleslaw, or potato salad. reheats well, and is so tastey!
