Slow Cooker Italian Roast Beef Sandwich

It’s definitely slow cooker season around our house now! This is probably one of the easiest recipes that we’ve ever cooked before as well. This Italian Roast Beef Sandwich recipe is actually our version of a sandwich that we grew up eating. There was a pizza parlor called Art’s Pizza that had THE BEST roast beef sandwiches ever! Thinly sliced roast beef was cooked in a spicy tomato based sauce. However, the best part of the sandwich was probably the bread. Why the bread you ask? Well, it’s simple. A good crusty bread will soak up all of that spicy and delicious beef broth! Although we don’t get to this restaurant much anymore, we always make a big pot of this delicious roast beef whenever we’re wanting the tastes from home. However, we don’t need to go any further than our own kitchen to get it! Stay fabulous!
