Slow Cooker Drip Beef Sandwiches

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. This recipe is delicious worth the wait!

Once it’s all cooked, you combined sauteed veggies with the tender shredded beef. Place them on a hoagie bun, add cheese and broil until the cheese is melted. They come out perfectly cooked with the toasted bun and always such a huge hit with the entire family.

How To Make Drip Beef Sandwiches

Just a few simple steps to make this delicious drip beef sandwich recipe!

  • Place beef in the slow cooker and top with beef broth and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Season and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours.
  • When beef is fork tender, shred the beef.
  • In a nonstick skillet, melt butter and sauté onions and bell peppers until tender.
  • Add mushrooms and minced garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add sauteed veggies into the slow cooker and stir to combine with the beef.

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!
