Favorite Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches
These are to die for -- rich and flavorful; keeps great in the fridge for munching on through the week as leftovers, and the meat can be used for other things, like burritos or over cooked egg noodles. You can use anywhere from 2 1/2 lb. to 5 lb. roast, depending on the size of your family or how much you want as leftovers. It quickly became a favorite in our house."This is SO easy and SO flavorful! What a hit! I started the cooker at home, then took it on the road across the city to my brother and sister-in-law's house. Instead of losing 45 minutes of cooktime to the ride, I plugged it into a AC/DC converter box that plugs into the cigarette lighter. The wattage the cooker pulled was within the limit of the box. Made the van smell SO good. Gives new meaning to food-on-the go. What a great option for tailgating at the football game, too!" - rosepool

Favorite Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches Preparation
Combine water with salt, ground black pepper, oregano, basil, onion salt, parsley, garlic powder, bay leaf, and salad dressing mix in a saucepan. Stir well, and bring to a boil. (You can also simply toss it in the microwave and heat for a few minutes). Place roast in slow cooker, and pour salad dressing mixture over the meat. Cover, and cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours, or on High for 4 to 5 hours. If cooking on low, at the 8 hour mark, use two forks to shred the meat, and then let it continue the rest of the cooking time (if cooking on high, do at about 1/2 hour left); this allows the flavors to really soak into the meat. When done, remove bay leaf.
This is outstanding served on toasted hoagie rolls; just put your desired amount of the meat on the rolls, and top with your favorite sliced cheese (provolone is outstanding) and broil to melt the cheese.
