Italian beef sandwiches

Hello friendly people!

I love slow cookers! I love being able to throw everything in one pot in the morning and to come home at night to a house full of wonderful smells.

Tonight’s meal is so simple,  yet tasted so exquisite  – Italian beef sandwiches with sautéed onions and peppers, topped with mozzarella and swiss cheese on a lightly toasted hoagie bun. I’ve already eaten and my mouth is watering.



  • 2-3 lb chuck roast
  • 1 envelope of Italian dressing mix
  • 1 cup of water
  • Mozzarella cheese or Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red (or green) bell pepper,  thinly sliced


  1.  Place chuck roast in slow cooker.
  2. Mix together 1 cup water and envelop of Italian dressing.
  3. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  4. Preheat broiler oven.
  5. Saute onions and peppers over medium-high heat, until onions are translucent.
  6. Slice hoagie bun and arrange flat on parchment lined cookie sheet.
  7. Place a sprinkling of cheese on bun.
  8. Place 1/2 cup of cooked meat on top of cheese.
  9. Top with 1/4 of onions and peppers.
  10. Add a bit more cheese.
  11. Place under broiler for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

One thought on “Italian beef sandwiches

  1. This looks like a great alternative to ordering take-out cheese steaks for dinner! Much less expensive, I’m sure, and not a lot of last-minute work for the cook. I will be trying it soon.
