Two ingredients, people. TWO ingredients.
The images are not the best – The sun insisted on going down before I was ready. I think you will get a mouthwatering idea of how yummy these are, though.
The beef cooks as long as possible in your slow cooker. I like to let it go 8 – 10 hours if I can. During that time the flavor of other ingredient, peperocini peppers, soaks into the meat giving it a vinegary bite and a touch of heat. After about 8 hours I shred the meat and let is cook a little more in the juice for more flavor.
You pile that juicy, shredded beef up as high as you can on a crispy sourdough baguette. You can add caramelized onions, sauteed peppers, Provolone or whatever you like – I usually go for just the beef or beef and onions. Garlic butter is amazing on these – just spread it before you put the beef on. This would be an awesome sandwich to serve for Superbowl.
