This was an awe­some recipe. Toast­ed the Ital­ian rolls and then added the Pro­volone. 30 sec­onds under the broil­er and then you are ready to dig in. Makes for a VERY good and hearty meal!

Easy and deli­cious. I used beef cubes because I had them in the freez­er, and it came out great. I agree with the first com­menter — toast the rolls, top with meat and pro­volone and place under broil­er for 30 sec­onds — scrump­tious!

To brown cheese with­out a boil­er
put Pro­volone on a skil­let and add the meat on top once the cheese browns flip and cook for a lit­tle bit then put it on the sand­wich
To brown the bread to make it toasty
put mayo on the bread (on the inside) then put on skil­let let it brown and put the meat and cheese on the yum­my bread! (I used sub rolls wheat or white)
Horse­rad­ish mus­tard sauce would be good on these

my only sug­ges­tion is that when I make mine I add jar of sliced pep­per­onci­ni and a jar of hot gia­r­diniera mix for a lit­tle more bite

Hi, I want to make this today. Can I cook on high? And for how long? Thank you.

Kris P.
Guest
Kris P.

Thank you for the reply. I’m going to cook it on high for 3 hours than turn it down. So, do you pull or shread the beef to make a sand­wich like pic­tured? Going for sand­wich­es. Also, I’m going to make the Apri­cot Catali­na chick­en tomor­row & turkey meat­loaf on Sat. Just LOVE your site, thank you so much!

Thanks for the reply. Do you pull or shred the beef to make sand­wich­es?

I made this tonight for din­ner. The meat was very good but it and the broth were very greasy. Try­ing to fig­ure out if I did some­thing wrong!

If I don’t have the au jus pack­et, is there some­thing else I can use? I think I have every­thing else.… bul­lion cubes?

I made this today but I like to exper­i­ment so added 1 can of diced toma­toes w/green chilies and a can green chilies. It was won­der­ful!

I tried this recipe yes­ter­day & it was deli­cious! We had the left­overs for din­ner again tonight 😀 My fiance bragged to all the guys at work how good it was! The only thing I changed was adding in some mush­rooms since we love mush­rooms so much

i love Ital­ian beef. i use about the same recipe except use beer and add beef bul­lion cubes instead of canned broth and pep­perci­nis (drained and rinsed)

I make mine very sim­i­lar, but add a jar of pep­pe­r­oci­ni (with liq­uid) and a pack­et of Zesty Ital­ian dress­ing mix. Oh my, it is soooo good!

Rob

I used eye round, 2 pack­ets of good sea­sons and added 2 big rus­set taters (chun­ked up with 2 hours left)

Sor­ry, don’t get packs of “au jus” in the UK, what is it? and how do i make it?

and… same with the dry dress­ing sea­son­ing mix stuff? what the heck is that?

Beth

Is eye round too lean for this? Think it would elim­i­nate the “grease” that one user wrote about .….

Holy WOW!!!! Made this for din­ner tonight & my hus­band (who can be a ticky too) raved about it over & over! He bare­ly spoke a word b/c he was too busy shov­el­ing it in! This is def a keep­er!

Alicia

Im going to make this tomor­row for sup­per. Im going to add in some mush­rooms, banana pep­pers, and green chilies. My ques­tion is do i add these ingre­di­ents at the begin­ing or wait until towards the end of the cook time?

Terra Durfee

I am lit­er­al­ly mak­ing this right now, but hes­i­tat­ed on the Ital­ian sal­ad dress­ing (only put on a tiny bit) because I’m wor­ried my kids won’t like that fla­vor­ing. Will it still come out good and oth­er­wise like it should if I don’t add the Ital­ian? I’m assum­ing it would be more like a plain Philly sand­wich, minus the zest, cor­rect?

I have philly cheese steak slices instead of the chuck roast. Would this recipe work with the already thin slices of beef? Thanks.

Can I just use an enve­lope on Lip­ton onion soup mix instead of the au jus mix? I have every­thing else but that!

HI! This looks fab­u­lous! I’m try­ing to use up cuts of meat in my freez­er from a beef share…do you think I could use Top Round Lon­don Broil for this??

Crock Pot Girl,

This recipe was AMAZING! Melt in your mouth ten­der, juicy and deli­cious! Thank you, thank you…

That is a lot of sodi­um so my plan is to use the broth and au jus but use Ital­ian herbs and lots of gar­lic. What do you think?

I didn’t see an answer to @Danny from UK’s ques­tion about sub­sti­tut­ing au jus. I haven’t been to the gro­cer yet so would beef gravy mix or beef bul­lion cubes work? I can see chang­ing this up by using mush­room soup and mush­rooms. Crock pots are so great for cook­ing meat for fla­vor and ten­der­ness.
