SLOW COOKER SHREDDED ITALIAN BEEF
Tangy, slightly spicy Italian beef is slow cooked all day until it's fall apart tender, and then shredded. Perfect on it's own, on a bun, or a baked potato!
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1 Tbsp dried minced onion
- 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
- 1 - 1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 7 pepperoncini peppers, chopped (I use the mild jarred ones)
- 7-10 banana pepper rings(I use mild)
- 2-3 lb beef chuck roast
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 4 Tbsp butter
Spray slow cooker insert with cooking spray. Add vinegar, dried onion, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, chopped pepperoncini peppers, and banana pepper rings to bottom of slow cooker. Stir to combine.
Add beef chuck roast on top of spice mixture, season both sides with salt and black pepper. Top with butter.
Place lid on slow cooker and cook on LOW for 8 hours. Remove beef from slow cooker and shred. Return to slow cooker to soak up any residual juice and serve.
For extra flavor, place some whole pepperoncini peppers and banana pepper rings on top of beef before cooking.
