This makes a lot. I had plenty for my family of five, with enough for the freezer and some for my husbands lunch.
1 Chuck Roast 3-5 lbs (Mine was 3 pounds)
1 cup of water
1/4 cup red wine
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 beef bouillon cube
1 pepper (I used orange because it's what I had on hand)
Place meat in your slow cooker, pour in water and wine. Sprinkle all the seasonings on top and place lid on top. Cook 8-10 hours on low.
When you are ready to eat, saute the onion and peppers in oil until soft. Shred the beef, and place on toasted rolls. Top with the onion and pepper mixture. Use the juice left in your slow cooker for dipping your sandwich. Enjoy!
