Slowcooker Shredded Beef and Pepperochini Sandwiches

Hello friends!  Happy Friday eve....

I have been so bad about blogging these days! Life has just been busy, but I have so many yummy things to share with you!

So what is new in my world?

1) I just returned from a trip from Disney with my family! I want to devote a post to out Disney experience, but if you follow me on Instagram (@ashleylecker) you probably saw all my fun adventures with my family. 

2) Rowan is 1! His birthday was a few days before Disney and I had a small family party, but am planning a little larger celebration for my boy when it gets a little warmer. 

3) We are starting to look into putting our house on the market. I love our house, but we are slowly getting too big for our space. 

4) I had a few recipes place 1st in Taste of Home recipe contests for my Grilled Ribeye with Blue Cheese Mustard Sauce and Baked Pumpkin Goat Cheese Alfredo with Bacon.  Yay!

5) I still love Pure is amazing. 

On to the food! This is a recipe that has a few different variation floating around, but this is my favorite way to eat this type of sandwich. I love slow cooking roasts for sandwiches because the meat is so tender and the peppers give a tang and slight bite to the sandwich.  I like to serve these on bolillo rolls- if you have not tried these hop to it! The roll is the perfect sandwich size and the bread is chewy and holds up to a saucy sandwich like this one.  I like a little provolone cheese on top, but a pepper jack would be delicious as well. 

This week I am getting ready to celebrate Easter with the family. I am doing the cooking at my parents and I am always excited to cook for them. I am planning: ham, scalloped potatoes, roasted asparagus, deviled eggs, rolls and a cheesecake!  We are also going to Ron's family's house and I know his mom will prepare a delicious ham and I am bringing a cheesecake as well. 

Have a great rest of the week!


3 lb beef roast (I use a chuck roast)
1 envelope Italian dressing seasoning
1 envelope au jus mix
1 jar (about 1 - 1 1/2 cups worth) sliced pepperochini peppers

Sliced provolone cheese


Place beef roast in the slowcooker and season with black pepper.  In a medium bowl, mix together italian packet, au jus, and peppers. Pour over beef roast.

Cook on low 8-9 hours. Shred roast and portion meat on the bolillo rolls. Top with cheese and enjoy!
