Touchdown of a Recipe!

The excitement of football season brings families, friends and even strangers together for team camaraderie. Whether fans retreat to their main caves, tailgate at the game, or gather at a friend's house to cheer on their favorite team, you know there is always food involved.

Today's recipe is a real team player because it can be made ahead of time in the slow cooker and the sandwiches can be assembled quickly before the game or during halftime.  My friend Mary shared this recipe with me a few seasons ago ~ it's hearty with just a hint of spiciness and satisfies even the hungriest of fans. 

After the roast has cooked, it will shred easily and can be placed back into the cooker with the juices and held warm until needed.  I like to serve these open-faced on the small hoagie rolls to make them easier to handle.  Build your sandwiches however you like, but my favorite way is with a squirt of mustard, piled high with roast beef, a few of the pepperoncinis for extra zing (or maybe some sauteed onions) and a layer of provolone cheese.  Place the sandwich under the boiler until the cheese is melted and serve with a side of au jus. 

No matter which team scores the most points, victory will be yours when you serve these on game day!
