Italian Beef Hoagies

You'll need just five ingredients to feed a crowd these tender and tangy Italian beef sandwiches. On weekends, I start the roast the night before, so I can shred it in the morning. —Lori Piatt, Danville, Illinois

    I have made this two times, and it just isn't that great. Seems like it is missing something, but I don't know what.

    This looks good but I think I would do 1/2 water and 1/2 beef broth for more flavor.

    Dissapointed, nothing like the Italian beef that my born and raised in Chicago family loves. I know it’s not the thin sliced gaucho beef, but we at least thought the gravy would be close. This was a huge fail for us.

    It was a big hit. The flavor was delicious. I couldn't find the meat it called for, so I used beef brisket. It still tasted great. My mom likes hers with horseradish mayo. Yummm!

    My husband was not looking forward to another crock pot failure...boy was he surprised! After making this twice, this is now his 'go-to' beef dish. I ended up leaving it in the slow cooker for almost 12 hours, so it was very tender and the pickled peppers were the perfect topper. Thanks Taste of Home for a great recipe!

    I have been making this for years! My family loves it. It always comes out very tender and flavorful!

    not impressed, beef did not get as tender as i hoped, a little dry peppery flavor overpowered the flavor of the meat

    I have made these several times now for potlucks at our church and it always goes over well. Could not find a sirloin tip roast the last time I made it, but the butcher said a tri-tip roast would be a good substitute...it worked fine.
