4 lb boneless beef chuck pot roast
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
2 green bell peppers, sliced
2 yellow onions, sliced
1 12 oz jar sliced pepperoncini (plus more for serving)
10 crusty sandwich rolls, split and toasted
20 slices Provolone cheese
Spray the insert of a 6 or 7 qt slow cooker with cooking spray.
Drain the pepperoncini reserving three tablespoons of the liquid.
Combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning in small bowl. Trim the fat from the roast and season each side with roughly one-third of the seasonings. Place the roast in the slow cooker. Pour the tomato sauce over the roast. Top with the green bell peppers, onions, and pepperoncini. Sprinkle the remaining third of the seasonings on top as well as the reserved pepperoncini liquid.
Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours. Use two forks to shred the meat. It should be so tender that it basically just falls apart.
Using a pair of tongs or a slotted spoon, place the shredded beef mixture along with onions and peppers on the bottom half of the rolls. Make sure you let most of the liquid drain away so your sandwiches don’t get soggy.
Top the shredded beef mixture with additional pepperoncinis if desired, and two (or more) slices of Provolone cheese. Place in oven just until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
3 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1 1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 in loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix milk, egg and canola oil until well combined.
Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients and until combined.
Fold in cheddar cheese.
Pour into prepared pan, If desired, sprinkle with some additional Italian seasoning.
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Let bread cool for approx 15 minutes before cutting.
3 c warm water
1-1/2 T yeast
1/2 T honey
1 T kosher salt
4 T unsalted butter, melted
1 t garlic powder
3 t Herbs de Provence
6-1/2 c bread flour
In a large bowl, add the water and yeast. Let the yeast proof 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and stir/knead 9-10 minutes until dough is smooth, wet, and just slightly elastic. I use the dough hook on the mixer to do this, but it can be done the old fashioned way with a wooden spoon.
Cover the bowl with a damp towel and put the dough to rise in a warm place for 2 hours. To do this, I turn on my oven for 2 minutes, turn the oven off, then stick the bowl in there.
Use a rubber spatula to scrape the dough out of the bowl onto a floured surface. Flour the top of the dough and knead it just a couple times to get it into a nice, smooth mound. Divide and form the dough into 4 loaves. Let them rise 1 hour.
Heat the oven to 450F with a pizza stone in the oven. Cook the bread loaves 30 minutes or until browned and crusty. On my pizza stone, I fit two loaves at a time. Move the cooked bread to a rack to cool. Serve that day or wrap in foil to freeze for later.
Yields 4 loaves.
