Tender Italian shredded beef made in the slow cooker. Perfect for sandwiches or on its own.
Place chuck roast in slow cooker along with water and seasonings.
Cover with lid and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 5 hours.
After elapsed time, shred beef with forks and remove any fat.
Serve by itself or on a toasted hoagie bun with provolone cheese and peperoncini peppers.
This produces fairly salty beef, but if you are concerned that it will be overly salty, start with 1 1/2 tsp and add more after tasting at the end.
