Italian Drip Beef Sandwiches

italian drip beed sandwich recipeTomorrow is the big day. Super Bowl Sunday grubbing. I cannot wait. This recipe, from The Pioneer Woman, is a perfect thing for your football watching extravaganza. I have made this many, many times. It never fails to be moist and tender and crazy easy to make. 5 ingredients. That is it. Can you pour? Can you put a big slab of beef into a pot? Then you can make this. This needs to be made the day before you are going to eat it. The flavors hang out and become friends. Really, really good friends.

The meat just falls apart. You use a fork and it shreds all on its own. Toast some sub rolls and grab some slices of cheese. I really like the spicy pepper jack with this, but use whatever you have around. The sandwich of your dreams.

italian drip beef sandwich recipe(I know that it does not look very appetizing right now, but I promise you it is delicious.)  Cover the pot and cook for 5 to 6 hours in a 275 degree oven. (You can also cook this in the slow cooker or slowly simmered on the stove). The beef should be falling apart. If it isn’t, keep cooking it until it does. When the beef is done, cool it down and put it in the fridge overnight. The fat will harden and skim it from the top.

    hmmmmmm I was going to make taco soup in my crock pot for tomorrow but now I want to make this instead as my main dish hmmmmmm decisions decisions! I can’t decide!!!

    1. bakedbree

      taco soup sounds good too. do you have a recipe that you would be willing to share?

        1. bakedbree

          thanks for sharing your recipe. sounds really good.

  2. Megan

    We tried this recipe too a little while ago. I love how easy it is and it was delicious! It was a bit spicy for my family, but I think that’s because we’re pretty wimpy when it comes to spicy stuff. It was still very yummy!

  3. Beverly

    This is a family favorite that I make in the crockpot. I also like to toss in a chopped onion and some mushrooms:-) I’ve also been known to take the leftovers and give them second life by adding carrots and potatoes to make a stew. Delicious!

    1. bakedbree

      great ideas Beverly!

  4. Leslie

    I’ve seen these on her site. You’ve convinced me I should make these! I am new to your site and I am obsessed!! Making 2 or 3 of your recipes today!!!

    1. bakedbree

      Welcome Leslie, these are delicious and so incredibly easy.

  5. Natalie

    I make something very similar to this! I call it brisket tacos though! I put a jar of the peppers, 1 dry packet of italian seasoning, 4 beef bullion cubes, onion, and some water in a crock pot. I serve it on tortillas. It’s very very yummy!

    1. bakedbree

      that sounds great Natalie.

  6. Amy

    I’m not a fan of pepperoncinis, but it looks like they might be good if i just didn’t add any to the sandwich itself. But really I wanted to say how much I love your site! When I’m googling for recipe ideas, it seems like I consistently end up back here and everything I’ve made has been great. You’re definitely my go-to site for a recipe that I can count on to turn out well the first time I make it. Over the holidays I had to host a party for ~75 people and used 5 or 6 of your recipes- each one turned out great and I had a lot of requests for the recipes. Keep up the great work 🙂

    1. bakedbree

      Thank you so much Amy!

  7. Darcie

  11. Susan

    This recipe is delicious and EASY! Perfect for me! I’m not a great cook-just not one of my my better attributes! In fact, if you would like a laugh, take a look at my lateset cooking mess! I’d love some suggestions!

    1. bakedbree

      I am sure that you are a great cook. I will check it out and see if I can help.

  12. Laura

    1. bakedbree

      You are welcome Laura!

  13. Desi

    OMG these look amazing! I really hope to make this!

    1. bakedbree

      I hope that you do. We love it.

  14. Angie

    Hi!! Love the site!! I was going to make this tonight for guests, not realizing that I should refrigerate it overnight!! Oops… Do you think it’d be okay if I don’t refrigerate it??

    1. bakedbree

      I sent you an email, but it should be fine. Just make sure to skim off as much fat as you can.

      1. Angie

        Thanks Bree!! I changed my game plan and saved this for the next day!! I’m so glad I did! There is no way I would’ve skimmed as much fat!! A VITAL step in the process!! It was a lovely meal!! And SO looking forward to leftovers!!

        1. bakedbree

          thanks for sharing Angie! Glad that you liked it.

  15. Annemarie Frost

    Thanks for this! I just ran to the grocery to pick up everything and tossed it all the crock pot! I was searching for something to make for a group tomorrow and this should be great!!!

    1. bakedbree

      it will be perfect. Such a perfect thing for entertaining.

  16. Tiffany

    These look so yummy– how many grown ups do you think the 4lbs feeds? Don’t want to overcrowd my pot– but need to feed 7 adults and 4 kids

    1. bakedbree

      A lot. I might use a little larger cut of beef, but it does make a lot.

  17. ItalianBeef.com

    I must say I am very very curious to try this recipe out. Although being a true Chicago Italian Beef fan, this might not be my style. But I will test it out and come back and post my thoughts. I am a bree fan, but this might take away from something I am too involved in, as I am a true ItalianBeef.com fan.

    Thanks again!!!!

    1. bakedbree

      Please do, I hope that you enjoy it even if it doesn’t fit your style.

  18. Chris Barnes

    This specific menu is delicious along with UNCOMPLICATED! Ideal for us! I’m not a good cook-just not merely one connected with the the superior features! Actually, if you wish a laugh, consider the latest cooking chaos! I’d really like a few tips!

    1. bakedbree

      I am so glad that you liked it! If you are cooking “challenged” the slow cooker may become your best friend. You really can’t mess anything up in there. 🙂

  19. Alice griffin

    This looks so yummy! Getting a whole new kitchen tomorrow thanks to the flooding in Louisiana and can’t wait to try some new recipies on my new oven! Love this site!

    1. bakedbree

      I’m sorry about the flooding, but a new kitchen sounds nice. Enjoy!

  20. Billy Sutherland

    Great receipt. The taste is wonderful. My family loved it and said we must visit it again soon!!!

    1. bakedbree

      Good! Glad to hear it.
