Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches Recipe

This slow cooker recipe for Italian Beef is so easy–you won’t believe how amazingly tender and juicy it is! It is one of the best Italian beef sandwiches I have ever had!

I highly recommend taking the time to make the Zesty Italian Dressing Recipe and the French Bread Recipe. It makes the meal.

When you combine this beef with those things…well, this Italian Beef slow cooker recipe is  just out of this world! Another winning recipe from The Stay at Home Chef, a previously featured Indiana Blogger.
