crock pot italian beef sandwiches

I have a confession to make.  I’ve been a bad blogger friend.  Way back in December Claire passed on the Stylish Blogger Award to me, which involves recognizing the award, sharing 7 random facts about yourself and then passing on the award.  Well, in the midst of Merry Mondays, the holidays, and moving across the U.S., I completely forgot about it.  Then, this weekend I was given it again by Surly Kitchen.  There was no way I was forgetting about it again, so here goes:

Seven Things About Me

1.  My birthday is this month!  I’ll be 25 on the 23rd.
2.  I started college at Mizzou as a journalism major.  After a personal life event, I decided to go into physical therapy.  Seven years have passed and I’m about to graduate in May.  
3.  If I crack one of my knuckles, I have to crack them all.  
4.  I have ran 5 marathons, and am running my 6th in October.
5.  I have a problem with starting books and then not finishing them.  I currently have six half-read books waiting to be finished.  
6.  Marc has nicknamed me Hurricane Taylor because I’m more destructive than a hurricane in the kitchen.  
7.  Sometimes I get intense cravings for beef.  The last time this happened, I made these sandwiches.  They’re to. die. for.

  1. In small bowl, combine water, salad dressing, Italian seasoning, dried red pepper, and garlic powder and stir well.
  2. Place beef sirloin in crock pot and pour water mixture over beef.
  3. Cook on low for 10-12 hours, until the beef is falling apart.
  4. Serve on buns topped with provolone cheese. I put them under the broiler for a minute to get the cheese all nice and melted.
  5. Serve with extra juice from the beef in crock pot for dipping. Enjoy!

    Oh, Marc has not met my little one who is worse than a hurricane in the kitchen. You are off the hook! She is a flat out f5 tornado! These beef sandwiches would be an instant favorite of mine. How heavenly!
