  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup chicken or beef stock
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3-pound boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

For Sandwiches

  • Sliced bell peppers
  • Sliced provolone cheese

  1. Place the diced bell pepper and onion in the slow cooker. Pour the chicken stock over the top.
  2. Mix the seasonings together in a small bowl. Rub the seasoning on the beef, covering both sides. Place the beef in the slow cooker. Cook the beef on low for 9-10 hours.
  3. Shred the beef in the slow cooker using two forks. Add the Worcestershire sauce and check the seasoning. If needed, add additional salt, approximately 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon.

How to make sandwiches: Place the bottom half of each hoagie roll on a baking sheet. Top each with some shredded beef. sliced bell peppers, and cheese slices. Place the baking sheet under the broil until the cheese is melted, a couple of minutes should be enough.
