  • 1 packet Italian dressing seasoning mix
  • 16 oz pepperoncinci peppers
  • 12 oz beer

    3 lb chuck roast, salt & pepper
  • Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Heat Dutch Oven on stove top on high heat and add oil
  • When Dutch Oven is HOT, add chuck roast and sear for approx 3-4 min on each side
  • Remove from heat
  • Add jar of peppers (+ juice), onion soup mix, Italian seasoning mix and beer. Be sure to pour the beer around the edges - so some of the seasoning stays on top of the roast

  • Place lid on dutch oven - if you don't have a lid, be sure to cover tightly with aluminum foil
  • Place Dutch Oven in oven at 400 degrees F for 1 hour, then reduce oven temperature to 300 for 3 hours
  • Remove from oven and remove lid
  • Shred beef and serve (no need for a meat thermometer with this recipe - it will be fork tender and fall apart!)
    Be sure to shred in the Dutch Oven - keep all those delicious juices from the bottom of the pan - that's the best part!
  • Serve beef on hoagie rolls and place a slice of provolone cheese on top. Melt under low broiler for 2-3 minutes
