We spent New Years with dear friends who live out of state and he made up these delicious Italian Beef Sammies. Once he told me the recipe, I laughed and thought I may have been celebrating too much! But it really is THIS easy!!

  3. are you buying pepperocinii peppers without stems or do you cute the stems off befor you put them in the crock pot?

    1. Thank you! This actually my recipe, and I’ll be happy to post it to your event! I’ll post a few others from my weeks prior that deal more with grilling.

  4. I have this in my crockpot now. Smells sooo good! I did use some variations though. I didn’t have quite 3 lb. of meat nor did I have 32 oz. of peppers. (Hubby did shopping, but not complaining!!) I added a pack of Italian salad dressing mix and instead of water, used beef broth. Hope it goes over with the hubby and boys!
