Kit’s Infamous Italian Beef

  • 5-6  pound rump roast
  • 1-2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1-2 tsp of dried basil
  • 1-2 tsp of dried thyme
  • 1-2 tsp of red pepper flakes crushed
  • 1-2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 6 cloves of garlic, squished with the back of the knife
  •  red and green bell peppers- I used only green because that’s what I had on hand
  • A good sprinkling of Wylers Beef Broth granules
  • I had 1 frozen French Onion Soup cube from Costco that I scraped the cheese off the top and threw the nodule into the pot.
  • 1/2 cup of red wine
  • 1/2 cup of water. You want to have a good amount of liquid because you dip the whole sandwich in the juices.
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Italian Rolls
  • **Adjust all seasonings to your own particular taste.  Then it will be “INSERT YOUR NAME HERE’S ”  Infamous Italian Beef.


  • Mix spices.
  • Rub mixture into beef.  Massage it thoroughly, like when you get a pedicure and they rub that massaging sea salt mixture into your rough skin.
  • Place it all in the crock pot with the peppers and onions on top.  Cook on Low til meat is done-about 6-8 hours.
  • Remove roast and let stand till cool. Reserve juice.
  • Slice beef thin on a meat slicer. If you don’t have a slicer, get one. You’ll use it for a lot more things than roast beef, but I don’t have one.
  • Place beef in juice.

Slice your rolls and pile on that juicy beef, dunk it with a pair of tongs and out.. of the juices then,  garnish with giardiniera and eat. Don’t forget those napkins.!

MY version Italian Mix Giardiniera:

1 jar Vlasic’s Zesty Garden Mix—Remove the amount of product you think you will need and combine with some chopped green olives, some chopped, bottled, pickled jalapeno slices and a little olive oil…Lip- smacking goodness.
