Slow Cooker Pepperoncini Beef Sandwiches

There is nothing I love more than an easy slow cooker meal, with just a handful of ingredients, that my whole family loves. These Slow Cooker Pepperoncini Beef Sandwiches are one of those meals!

My 16 year-old was excited about these sandwiches as soon as he saw the ingredients go into the slow cooker. And he was not disappointed with the results! None of us were. The shredded beef in these sandwiches is full of flavor, without being too spicy, thanks to a jar of pepperoncini peppers.

I would say these sandwiches have a zingy kick to them, but if you’re really concerned about the heat level, you could just use half the jar of peppers. We thought they were just right!

Of course, my younger, pickier son did pick all the peppers out of his meat before he devoured his sandwich. Not because he doesn’t like a little spice, but because he doesn’t like peppers.

When you add a slice of melted Provolone cheese and a crusty bun to the mix, you’ve got one outstanding sandwich. And best of all, this recipe couldn’t be any easier to put together. It’s one of those “throw it all in the slow cooker and walk away” kind of meals. My favorite!

We loved these sandwiches so much, I made them again within a week. And my family was just as excited about eating them the second time around.

This one will definitely be making a regular appearance on our dinner table.

  1. Something told me not to open this email. Good GRAVY!!!! You know this is my weakness – I would take this over cupcakes! OH MY WORD!!! I need to make this ASAP!

  2. I make a sandwich like this, but I add roasted red peppers. I’ve never had it with mayo though, but it sounds like heaven on a bun. And my 14 year old LOVES it!

  3. Is it Italian dressing mix? I can’t find Italian seasoning mix any where.

  4. How many servings is this?
