- Place beef in a 4- or 5-quart slow cooker. In a small bowl combine water, salad dressing mix, Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper and garlic powder; pour over beef in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 11 hours or on high-heat setting for 5 to 5-1/2 hours.

If you like, sprinkle sandwiches with cheese and place sandwiches on two large baking sheets; broil sandwiches, one pan at a time, 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

If you like, top each sandwich with pickles, chopped onion, pepperoncini and/or roasted red sweet pepper strips. Serve remaining cooking juices for dipping, if you like. Makes 10 to 12 sandwiches.
