Slow Cooker Italian Chuck Roast with Peppers and Onions

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"Slow-cooked Italian beef for sandwiches. Provolone, Swiss, and Cheddar cheese are all delicious with this. My kids had hot Italian sandwiches on hoagies; I prefer mine over veggies like spaghetti squash or zoodles. Really, any veggies would work, as would mashed potatoes, rice, or grits. Don't forget to add the cheese on top if you're not doing's absolutely heavenly without the bread, as well."

Great recipe to add to my rotation for 2020! I added more pepperoncinis AND juice than suggested and will continue to as it gave a nice boost to the flavor profile!

No changes. And yes will make it again!

I followed the recipe exactly and I found the flavor of the meat rather bland. In addition, my meat turned out tough and wouldn’t shred which made this even more disappointing. I will try agai...
