These sandwiches are the easiest thing you will ever make (even if you’ve never cooked a meal in your life, you can make these) and people will think you slaved in the kitchen.  This beef is fall-apart tender and melt-in-your mouth delicious.  5 ingredients and prep time is less than 5 minutes.  Set it and forget it!


3 pounds top round (or similar cut) beef roast

2 or 3 cloves minced garlic

1 (0.6 oz.) packet Good Seasons dry Zesty Italian dressing mix

1 (16 oz.) jar whole or sliced pepperoncini peppers

8 to 10 ounces fat-free Zesty Italian dressing

Buns for serving

Cheese for sandwiches, optional


Place roast in a slow cooker.

Top with garlic and dry zesty Italian seasoning mix.

Discard all but about a quarter of the juice out of pepperoncini jar; pour remaining juice and all the peppers over the roast.

Pour in liquid zesty Italian dressing.

Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or high for 3-4, or until meat is fully cooked and shreds easily.

Shred the beef & serve it hot on a toasted bun with the cheese of your choice.
