 Italian Beef Sandwiches
My mother-in-law often served these flavorful sandwiches after church when we'd visit. Because there's little prep work, I make them on busy weeknights alongside french fries and raw veggies. Our children get excited when they smell the beef simmering in the slow cooker. -Jan Kent Knoxville, Tennessee
