These hearty beef sandwiches make great appetizers to carry along to a party. Have this Italian delight slow cooking all day long.
3-pound beef boneless chuck roast
bottle (8 ounces) reduced-calorie Italian dressing
slices (1 ounce each) provolone or mozzarella cheese
large bell peppers, cut into rings
rounds focaccia bread (8 inches in diameter), cut horizontally in half
Trim excess fat from beef. Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook beef in skillet about 5 minutes, turning once, until brown.
Place beef in 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Pour dressing over beef. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until beef is tender.
Remove beef from slow cooker. Cut beef into thin slices; return to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat setting 20 to 30 minutes longer or until beef is hot.
Layer beef, cheese and bell peppers on bottom halves of focaccia; top with remaining halves. Cut each focaccia into 8 wedges.
Here's a hearty, great-tasting appetizer to bring to a party. We suggest wrapping the sandwiches in foil to transport to the party, then cutting into wedges. You could also serve the sliced beef in the slow cooker along with small buns and let guests make their own sandwiches.
