Crock pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

I served our beef on homemade slider rolls made from Artisan dough topped with cheese (broil the cheese if you like), carrot sticks and macaroni and cheese.
Do you like sandwiches? If the answer is yes, try this hot sandwich. It’s made with roast cooked in your crock pot all day. You can buy a bottom round or chuck roast. The bottom round is leaner with less fat. I bought a bottom round specifically for the sandwich and not the usual pot roast with vegetables. However, I recommend enjoying a pot roast first if you’re family likes it and then making these tasty sandwiches with the leftovers. You can freeze your pot roast leftovers and then thaw the shredded meat later to make these.
You begin with the seasonings. I use minced onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper and Italian seasoning. Click on the printable recipe at the end of the post for the exact measurements. I drizzle the top with olive oil.
It will look like this once it’s shredded, unless you keep it in tact to eat as pot roast first. Then shred it later and cool it completely before you bag it for the freezer. It looks like we can have this meal 2 additional times this month or I can vary it up by adding BBQ sauce, top it with slaw or serve it in a wrap.
Do you have any additional ideas for shredded beef? We’d love to hear them.
