To make this recipe, you’re going to cook your boneless beef chuck for 7-8 hours. Yes, this is definitely a dinner you will need to start at breakfast time!

Letting the meat cook slow all day makes it very tender and easily cut and shredded for your sandwiches.

Once it’s all cooked, you will saute your veggies over the stove and add them in with the shredded beef. Place them on a hoagie bun, add cheese and broil for just a few minutes. They come out perfectly cooked with the bun toasted as well.

What are cremini mushrooms?

Mushroom varieties are so interesting to me. The cool thing is, that most of the mushrooms you are used to eat are the same thing but aged differently. So a cremini mushroom is just one that is older than a white button mushroom and younger than a portobello.

Because of the age, they vary on firmness, color and texture. So really, you can choose whichever mushroom variety you would like!

  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. salted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion peeled and sliced thinly
  • 2 large green bell peppers deseeded and sliced thinly
  • 8 oz. cremini mushrooms diced

  3. Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours.

  5. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt butter and saute onions and bell peppers until tender, about 4-5 minutes.
