Countdown to Christmas: Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches

Tomorrow is Christmas!  It's practically here!  Here is a recipe so yummy that we made it for our Christmas dinner with my family this year.   It's super easy to throw together in a slow cooker and makes a big batch.  If I'm not making it for a group, I usually freeze half of the meat.   Here's how Mama makes it:

Italian Beef Sandwiches

I apologize, I forgot to take a picture of the end result
we got caught up in the holiday celebration - as we should!
here's a cute baby pic instead :)
- 5 lb. rump roast (or two that are about 5 lbs. together)
- 1 can beef broth
- 1 cup beer (any kind)
- 1 package zesty Italian seasoning mix
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon each:  basil, black pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, oregano
- sandwich buns, optional

1.  Place roast in a slow cooker. 

2. Place all remaining ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, then pour over the roast in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours.

be careful not to let it boil over
not that I'm speaking from experience or anything...

part way through cooking
when it's done, you can easily shred or cut it with a fork
we usually serve it as sandwiches on buns

Merry Christmas Eve!
Love, Mama & her sweet Christmas angel :)
