Slow Cooker Tangy Italian Beef Sandwiches
If this is too oily for you, take the meat out before shredding, let the liquid in the crockpot settle, then lay a couple of clean paper towels over the oil on the top. It helps to have a bowl or plate handy when you lift them off so the oil doesn't drip. Discard the oil-soaked paper towels; repeat until there's no more oil slick. I like this better than using a reduced-fat dressing, which has more thickeners and sugars that can change tastes and consistency when cooked for hours on end.
