Crock Pot Italian Beef

I created this great recipe and it was delicious. It was super easy and would be a good one for a weeknight meal.The only critique I had for myself is that it was slightly too spicy. I used a whole jar of peppers and their juice, next time I will use half the jar only.

The ingredients are as follows:

  • 2-3 lb Chuck Roast, Cut into large chunks.
  • 2 Packets of Italian Dressing Seasoning Mix
  • 1 Medium Sized Jar of Pepperocini
  • 1 Bag of Chateau Mini Potato Dumplings
  • 1 Green Pepper Cut into Chunks or Strips
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion, sliced into strips


After you prep all the ingredients all you need to do is dump everything but the dumplings into your crock pot. I turned my crock on low and let it cook for 6 hours.

Pro Tip : Everytime you open the lid on your crock pot it adds thirty minutes cooking time. Note that when following a recipe.

At the 6 hour mark I opened up the lid and checked to make sure the meat was tender and easily separated with a fork. I then added the mini dumplings to the crock pot, covered it and let it cook for another 30 minutes.

This recipe was PERFECTION. It would be great for a bbq, a potluck, a weeknight ot weekend dinner or for any party really.


I love using these dumplings in any recipe I can. I love the taste and texture of them. As they cooked in the beef au jus they took on the taste of a gravy bread. They really made this recipe perfect. You can find out where to purchase these dumplings at their website at ChateauFoods.Com , they even sell them online and can be shipped anywhere in the 48 states.
