Zesty Italian Beef (slow cooker)

This is my 100th post! I am truly excited and I want to thank all of you that follow my blog or just happen to scroll by. Thank you for your feedback, it’s just one of the many reasons why I will continue to enjoy bringing great recipes to your table.

I have tried for weeks to find a great Italian Beef recipe that didn’t take 2 days to prepare or take a long time in the oven. Besides, I’m a busy person and I can’t stay home to leave my oven on all day, right? So why not use the slow cooker? I think the slow cooker is the best invention besides A/C and a furnace when needed. Anyway, I decided to take a few ideas from a few different websites and make my own…heck, I even made my own italian dressing mix! This recipe has a “kick” to it and it was fabulous! Please enjoy and remember, feedback is a great opportunity to let your voice be heard and seen!
