  • 2 TBSPs olive oil
  • 2 1/2 pound beef roast
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 2 cups water
  • 28 oz low sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup dried onion flakes
  • 2 TBSPs low sodium beef bouillon granules
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 to 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 6 to 8 hoagie rolls


  • Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Generously season the meat with salt and pepper. When the oil in the pan begins to smoke, add the meat to the pan. Sear the meat on all sides, cooking until just browned.
  • While the meat is searing, add the rest of the ingredients (save the cheese and hoagie rolls) to your slow cooker. Then add the meat.
  • Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours. The meat is done when when you are able to easily shred it with a fork. Remove the bay leaves.
  • Add the meat to the hoagie rolls and top with cheese. Place open faced under your oven's broiler until the cheese is just melted. Serve with the bowls of the drippings from the slow cooker for dipping!
