Italian Dip

So I wrote this this post up a few weeks ago but I had not made the dish recently and I was waiting on my picture. While I was publishing another post I accidentally pushed publish on this one with out realizing it til someone left me a comment on it. Oops. It was not edited and no picture. So here it is again making its second debut.

 These french dip  I mean Italian dip sandwiches are wonderful.  I saw them on pioneer woman last winter and I made them for a super bowl party I had here at the house.  They were devoured.   So much more flavor than a traditional dip sandwich.  A little spicy and so wonderful.  You can leave plan or top with provolone or pepper jack cheese.  You can use any kid of bread here.  I opted for ciabatta bread.  It is my favorite lots of flavor, chewy texture and so good.  I often do not eat white bread if I do I want to make it good. Good for me is Ciabatta...mmm   Enjoy!!!


  • 1 whole Beef Chuck Roast, 2.5 To 4 Pounds
  • 1 can Beef Consomme Or Beef Broth
  • 1 pack good seasons Italian Seasoning packet
  • ¼ cups Water
  • ½ jars (16 Oz) Pepperoncini Peppers, With Juice
  • Buttered, Toasted Deli Rolls

Preparation Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker crock pot. Stir lightly to combine seasoning with the liquid.
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until meat is fork-tender and falling apart. With two forks, completely shred all meat, leaving no large chunks behind. Serve immediately, or keep warm  OR
May make the day before, then store in the refrigerator. Remove the hardened fat from the top before reheating.
Serve on buttered, toasted rolls. Top with cheese and melt under the broiler if desired. Serve with juices from the pot.

  1. I love hot beef sandwiches like this! The recipes sounds delicious!

  2. oh that is funny I didn't not mean to publish this it was still in draft form and no picture attached I must have used publish on accident. It will return.

  3. Mmm Nicole your sandwiches look great! I love 'dip' sandwiches!

  4. I notice your recipe says if the meat isn't fully tender after 8-10 hours, you should return the beef to the OVEN to cook about 30 minutes more: is that correct? Do I really need to take the entire roast out of the crock pot and put it in a baking dish of some kind and roast it in the oven? Or did you mean to say "put it back in the crockpot for additional cooking time?"

    Thanks for any guidance you can provide. I've been looking for a recipe just like this after having it at a friend's house for dinner (SOOOO delicious!), and I can't wait to make it!!!

  5. Dori, sorry that is a typo. the original recipe was done in the oven and I forgot to change that part. after a while in the crock pot I promise it will be falling apart. no oven needed.

  6. Cool, thanks so much for getting back to me on that! I am going to try that recipe ASAP. Yum!

    And CONGRATS on your pregnancy, by the way!!!! :) Hope you are well and that it's progressing smoothly for you and baby.

  7. Nicole, so I made this for friends for a Sunday dinner and they loved it! They all keep asking for the recipe. Definitely a keeper!!
