Pepperoncini Beef

Simple and delicious…

Sometimes the simplest ingredient list can turn out the most delicious results. That’s the beauty of pepperoncini beef. It’s pretty much a chuck roast, a jar of pepperoncini peppers, and some spices, but the flavor impact just seems like so much more.

This is a perfect slow cooker recipe for spicy sandwiches – simply stuff some hoagie rolls and you’re off to the races. Though, there’s many other uses too. Try it over rice, or use it as a stuffing for a delicious twist on stuffed bell peppers. Yes, you heard it right – pepper-stuffed peppers. There should be a law.
