These easy Pepperoncini & Beef Sandwiches are tender, cheesy, and slightly spicy for a delicious meal that’s quick and easy! This simple sanwich recipe is perfect for picnics!



  • 2.5 lbs. beef roast (buy whatever’s on sale–chuck, rump roast, etc)
  • 1/2 (or more) of a 16oz peperoncinis (deli sliced or whole)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Sandwich Buns
  • Your favorite white cheese–mozzarella, provolone, swiss, or white cheddar
  • optional: extra peperoncinis for serving


  1. Trim any visible fat from your roast. Place in the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in half a jar worth of peppers (don’t include all the juice, just pick out the peppers). If you want a bit more heat, add a few tablespoons of the pepper juice to the crock pot. Pour in beef broth. Cook on low 7-8 hours.
  2. Shred beef, removing any fatty bits. Slice peppers and mix into beef.
  3. For best serving results, toast buns, fill with beef/pepper mixture, and top with cheese and a few extra peperoncinis. If necessary, pop the sandwiches in the oven for a minute or two to melt the cheese. Savor the goodness.
