What's On The Menu? Monday -- Italian Beef Sandwiches

A couple of years ago while tailgating at a football game Andy and I had our first Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich.  Yum!  Prior to this we were never adventurous eaters, not that eating a PCSS is adventurous.  But, trying this opened our eyes (and mouths!) to trying new food.  I tried making a version of this at home and it turned out pretty good so I told a co-worker about it.  Then she said, "You have to try my Italian Beef Sandwich recipe."  So she brought it the next day and the rest, as they say, is history!  (Double yum!)

Italian Beef Sandwiches
(Makes about 10)
3lb Rump Roast
1/2 can beef broth
1 T red pepper flakes (more if you like it spicy!)
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 onion, chunked up
1 green pepper, chunked up

Put all of this into your handy, dandy crock pot on low for 4 hours.  Then add 2 small cans of diced green chilies.  Cook for another 6 hours.  When done cooking it'll be so tender the roast will be falling apart.  If there's any fat on your roast pull that off, then use forks to shred the meat in the crock pot with all of the juices and flavors. 

I toast up hoagie buns then put a slice of cheese on them and melt that under the broiler for a minute.  Top with your delicious meat and some of the juices.  Enjoy!
