ITALIAN BEEF....TWO OF THE BEST RECIPES FOR FALL


Hello Gorgeous!
 The month of October has finally arrived! 
Stay with me.........



THE FIRST DAY
ITALIAN BEEF SANDWICHES
3 cups of beef broth
1/2 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
1 envelope of Good Seasons dry Italian dressing mix
1 (3-5 pound) beef roast (rump or chuck)
1 cup of golden pepperoncini
1 cup of Italian mix giardiniera
3 cloves of garlic, smashed
Italian deli rolls
Sauteed peppers and onions, a personal preference
Sliced mozzarella or provolone cheese


Add the beef broth to the crockpot turn up to high. Whisk in the beef base, Italian seasoning, and Good Seasons packet until well blended. Add the roast, the pepperoncini and giardiniera (without the juices), and the garlic. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 hours.  

Remove the roast and let rest for 10 minutes. Cut into chunks and return the meat to the crockpot. Keep on low for several hours. When ready to serve, spoon meat with or without juices onto bread, plain or toasted, add mozzarella or provolone and place under the broiler to melt. Serve au jus with drippings from the crockpot for dipping, if desired.



THE SECOND DAY
Turn your leftovers into a beautiful Italian Beef Stew. Place your leftover roast beef, juice and peppers into a stock pot. Add sliced red potatoes and a sliced onion. Add a little water to the broth and simmer until the potatoes are tender. Serve with garlic bread.
