Perfectly seasoned tender slow cooked beef is piled on a toasted bun and topped with ooey gooey cheese and 2 kinds of peppers. This recipe is so easy you will be pulling out the crock pot over and over to make it this summer.
I may have mentioned a time or two that I am a sandwich girl. I love sandwiches just about any way they come. I like cold sandwiches, hot sandwiches, burgers and even wraps. Pretty much if it comes wrapped in a bread product its a winner for me.
I have been craving sandwiches lately and have not been able to take my mind off of an old favorite. Chad is not as much of a sandwich lover unless its a burger. I have been telling him about how bad I want an Italian Beef Sandwich and he just didn't get it, until I made it. Then he was like "Ooooooooh, NOW I get it!".
Don't you love that??
