For Ruth

by Kym on February 2, 2009

My sister-in-law, Ruth, asked me to give this recipe to her. I fixed it this summer for Kiley’s birthday and everyone loves it.
I got this recipe from my neighbor in Panama City. She is from Chicago and loves the food there. Her daughter gave her this recipe, I think! After hearing the boys rave about it, I asked for a copy…she brought me enough for a sandwich and the recipe and I was sold! This is really our family’s favorite way to eat a crock pot roast. Interestingly enough, where we are in North Carolina, the London Broil is on sale about every 3 weeks. It is less expensive when it is on sale than the meat in the recipe, so we have been making it with the London Broil. I also put 2 big pieces of meat in my big crockpot so that we can have company or leftovers…but the last two times we have made it, Baylee took the leftovers! I am going to have to see if I can put even more in the crock pot!
So, here goes….Warning-to make it as follows makes it extra spicy! If you love spice, follow exactly. If not, see the notes at the end.
Crockpot Italian Beef Recipe
4 1/2-5 pound beef roast (Boneless Bottom Roast)
32 ounces (jar) Italian Giardiniera, drained
32 ounces (jar) pepperocini peppers (not drained)
1 envelope Italian Salad dressing-zesty Italian
10 ounce can condensed beef broth
8 bullion cubes for serving…
Combine dry salad dressing mix with condesed beef broth and put in bottom of crock pot. Add beef roast to mixture. Drain Giardiniera and pour over roast.
add pepperocini peppers-including liquid.
Cover and cook on low for 12-14 hours until meat is tender. Very tender!
Remove meat from crock pot and drain mixture saving the juice. Put juice back into crock pot with meat. Add 4 cups hot water with 8 beef boullion cubes dissolved into the crock pot. Shred meat with a fork and add to mixture.
Serve on sub sandwich rolls or french bread.

Now, here are my changes….I use 1 16 ounce giardineria and depending on size of meat 1 or 2 16 ounce cans of pepperocini peppers. I usually drain one and pour the other one in. I like to save the veggies and serve them at table…my family like to eat them!
Some people like to add lettuce, tomatos, mayo etc…we just like them plain and serve chips or something on the side!

If you fix this, let me know how you like it! And thanks, Barb, for a great recipe and for a fun year living next to you! Ruth, let me know how it works! And thanks for asking for the recipe…I love making food that others like, too! :)
