Italian Beef Sandwiches

This recipe comes from our good friends, Brian and Lindsay, and has become a small group staple. It's great for parties too because it's super easy to prepare and can feed a lot of people relatively inexpensively. I used a roast from "our" cow and it turned out even better than usual. That grain-fed beef is awesome stuff! :)
Italian Beef Sandwiches
Any style pot roast (arm, shoulder, butt)
1 large onion cut into chunks
1 jar of mild banana peppers (juice and everything)
1 can beef broth (I used chicken b/c I had it hand)
couple cloves of minced garlic
1-2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce

Trim off fat from roast. Put in crock pot with the rest of the ingredients and cook on high for 5 to 7 hours. Bigger roasts will take longer; cut the roast into halves or quarters to speed up the cooking process. After 5 to 7 hours, take the roast out and pull apart with fork. Strain out onions and peppers from juice. Put shredded beef back into crock pot and add back in liquid to your desired juiciness. Serve on hard or toasty sandwich rolls. (We used yummy pretzel rolls!) I also took 2 tablespoons of cream cheese, mixed in some pesto and spread it on the bread before adding the beef to the sandwich.
