Tasty Tuesday Pepperoncini Beef!

Donna sent this one, and I tried it out a few days ago. It's almost as yummy as the hunk!

Pepperoncini Beef Sandwiches (12 servings) You won't won't be saying where's the beef? It's right where we like it. In the buns. Add a nice cheese slice. Delicio!!!


  • 1 (3 pound) beef chuck roast
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar pepperoncini( Tuscan peppers or Italian sweet peppers)


  1. Make small cuts in roast, and insert garlic slices in cuts. Place roast in the slow cooker, and pour the entire contents of the jar of pepperoncini, including liquid, over meat.
  2. Cover, and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours.


  1. Now that recipe sounds amazing! I'll have to try that.

    And that is one sexy piece of man!

  2. YUMMY man, and a yummy sounding recipe! I once put about half of a jar of pickle relish on a pork roast in my slow-cooker, with sliced onions and garlic and apple chunks and cabbage---and it turned out really great! Made some super sandwiches the next day!

  3. That sounds good too, Suzy. I'll have to try that!

  4. Yes, Suzy,
    That sounds like a great Sandwich too. Sorta like a Pork Rueben.

  5. This sounds delicious! Was it very spicy? My son loves pepperocinis in his sandwiches, but I don't know if it would be too spicy for my daughter

    Pretty hunk!

  6. Lisa,
    The Pepperoncini are more sweeter pepper flavor than hot or too spicy.
    And if you lock your lips on this guy. Or if you taste his lips and mouth. He's got sorta of sweet chocolate cinnamon taste. If you know what I mean LOL!!!
    I had to add cinnamon to my hot chocolate this morning. Because I didn't have him.

  7. Today's hunk is nice but my eyeballs strayed directly left to our mascot, The Chief and then slightly downward to Giuseppe:D I'm bracing for WWW tomorrow! *grin*

    I'm interested to know the answer to the question as to whether or not Pepperoncini is spicy? Since I don't eat "spicy (hot)" I don't know much about peppers other than avoiding them. My pepper palate is very unsophisticated. I like banana peppers but that's about it.

    I do love pot roast, however, and fix one in a manner close to the one described a few times a year.

    @Suzy. I like pork roast too and in particular relish so your recipe sounds good.

  8. @Nancy--I LOVE hot foods (and MEN!), and gleefully chow down on the hot carrots and jalapenos that my favorite local taco shop gives away free...I even chop up the carrots and add them to omeletes and stir fry!

    Some of the people I cook for share your feelings about culinary heat, and I try to warn them when I make curry, chili,or other spicy meals---but they're used to my habits by now! My Mom was a very bland, simple cook, and the only strongly flavored thing she ever made was sauerbraten (German marinaded beef roast). My father, however, was a wildly inventive cook, and he gave me a love of odd combinations and spicy flavors! Dad would take some dark, sweet molasses-ey bread, and make a sandwich with mayonnaise, sliced red onion, and cold canned baked beans---I still make these when I can find that good bread! YUM!!!

  9. I like the spicy stuff too. In fact, I thought the peppers were the best part of this dish. My DH didn't seem to like them as much, which left more for me!
