Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches

I have to say that this is one of the EASIEST meals that I have ever made. It's the kind you throw in the crock pot first thing in the morning and forget about until dinner time. I love those kinds of meals. It's not only easy, but DELICIOUS TOO! The Italian flavoring is just right...not too strong...not to mild. These Italian Beef Sandwiches are definitely a crowd pleaser, men, women and children will leave the table full and happy because dinner was amazing! Can't beat that!

Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches
3 lbs boneless beef (roast or steaks...I used Flank Steak)
3/4 c. water
1 packet DRY Italian salad dressing
2 t. dried Italian seasoning
1/2 t. ground red pepper
1 t. garlic powder
Hoagie buns or any sandwich bun
sliced provolone cheese

In a bowl or cup, combine water and all seasonings. Stir well. Place beef in crock pot and pour mixture over the beef. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until beef is falling apart. When beef falls apart, shred with two forks (leaving the meat in the crock pot) and let it soak up the juices.

Butter the inside of the buns and place them face down in a frying pan. Lightly brown. Remove buns from pan. Place desired amount of meat on your bun along with 2 slices of provolone cheese. Add any other toppings that you desire (sliced onions, peppers, saute'd mushroom etc...)
Serve with potato salad or chips....or anything that sounds good to you.
