SLOW COOKER ITALIAN BEEF

SLOW COOKER ITALIAN BEEF

The only “trick” for the low carb option of this is to skip out on the bun. While I would have loved to make a sandwich out of this meat, a bowl of it is so flavorful. This first time I tried this recipe I chopped the pepperoncini, which ended up making the beef spicier. Then second time I left them whole so I could easily pick them out of the meat if I didn’t want to eat them. Adding mustard on top of the beef is an excellent addition!
