These sandwiches tho.
Like, for real.
You know I get really excited about a recipe when I start talking in slang and making up words. Because…like, for realsies. *said in my best valley girl voice!*
These are the real deal.
The realsies dealsies.
(Ok, I’ll stop.)
It’s partly because of the soft, shreddable beef from the slow cooker. Partly from the zing and bite of the pepperoncini peppers. (They are not spicy…but have a tangy zip to them!)
Serve these babies with your favorite veggie or salad side and some chips! I love chips with sandwiches/burgers!
P.S. These would be great in the Instant Pot too, but the end result would be more of a sliced beef than a chopped or shredded beef. 🙂

I made this for dinner last night and we really liked it. It has a nice zing to it and definitely was not boring as so many slow cooker beef recipes can be. I have two more meals to put in the freezer today and that’s an added plus!
