Recipe for Slow Cooker Steak Sammies

Here's another good recipe from A Year of Slow Cooking.  I'm all in to quick and easy these days and this recipe hits all its marks.  Two ingredients in the slow cooker (plus salt and pepper); seven hours later-a flavorful, aromatic, tender pile of beef and peppers just waiting to be plopped on some healthy whole wheat buns with some provolone or pepper Jack cheese.  Yummy!

Time: 5 minutes prep; 7 hours on low in slow cooker
Yield: 8 servings

  • 2 pound chuck roast
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) sliced peperoncini
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pepper Jack and provolone cheese slices
  • Whole wheat buns

  • Trim all visible fat from chuck roast.
  • Liberally salt and pepper the roast.
  • Place roast in slow cooker.
  • Pour peperoncini (including liquid) over roast.
  • Cook on low for 7 hours.
  • Remove and shred meat and then stir back into liquid.
  • Toast buns under broiler with a slice of cheese on one half of bun.
  • Using a slotted spoon so most of the liquid drains off, place meat on toasted bun and serve.

Are you cooking anything fun in the slow cooker?
