      Now this sounds like a Italian Beef Sandwich done right. I found a recipe in a crock pot cookbook for this but it was made with chili powder. It was good but I wouldn't call it Italian beef; must have been a typo. I'm keeping your recipe.

        Great recipe. But I use Italian Seasoning and add bits of green pepper when cooking it.
