Italian Beef Sandwiches
- 3 lb beef roast
- 3 cups water
- 1 tsp of each - salt, pepper, oregano, onion powder, and garlic powder
- 2 pkgs Italian dry salad dressing mix
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 cups button mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 medium onion, sliced
- 6 crusty buns
- 4 - 5 Tbsp garlic butter
- 1 cup Kraft Italiano cheese blend
Mix together water, seasonings, dry salad mix, and bay leaf. Heat in microwave for 1 - 2 minutes, just to warm up. Pour over roast and marinate overnight.
Put in slow cooker on low for 6 - 8 hours, until roast is cooked.
Slice roast thinly, or shred with 2 forks if you prefer. Place back in slow cooker in the juices for about another hour.
In a frying pan, fry mushrooms and onions in 1 T of the garlic butter.
Slice buns in half and butter with garlic butter. Place on a cookie sheet, buttered side up. Stick under the broiler for 1 - 2 minutes. Just long enough to melt the butter and slightly crisp the bread.
Cheese is pretty sparse on these ones as Sue almost ran out of cheese! Feel free to put more on as you like!
Sprinkle with cheese.
Place the beef on top of the cheese. Top with the onions and mushrooms.
