Once you make this shredded beef in the crockpot, you’re going to want to make it over and over again. This is why pot roast is one of my favorite slow-cooked recipes. Choose between a chuck roast or a beef roast and get ready to love making a truly hearty meal.

Since we’re on the go a lot, I keep the staples for this recipe on hand. I love it best with hoagie rolls and the boys really love piling on the pepperoncini peppers. To each their own when making this sandwich!

Can you add in other veggies to this recipe?

You bet. You can never have too many types of pepper rings or even some fresh bell peppers. Thinly sliced onions are always a good idea as well.

How to Make Hoagie Rolls

Add salt, yeast, and flour to the bowl and mix with a mixer.

In a different bowl, whisk together oil, egg, sugar, and water until the sugar dissolves.

Using a hook mixer on low, add the liquid to the dry and combine. This will form the dough. You can increase speed slowly as it starts to form.

Put the dough onto a lightly floured area or surface and knead. This should make it a smooth ball.

Put the dough in a bowl that is greased, turning once to have some grease on the top area. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until it's doubled in size.

Spray two different baking sheets with cooking spray and put the rolls of dough on them. Cover with greased plastic wrap and let rise about 40 minutes or so.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and after the dough has risen, cut a slash in the middle.

Put in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

How To Make Italian Shredded Beef
