Slow Cooker Italian Beef

We recently got a part of a cow that was butchered. With one of the roasts we received, we tried to make Italian beef for sandwiches. Now, no school (even girls schools) really teaches you how to make a good Italian beef sandwich.  This was our first attempt, and I have to admit it was pretty darn good.
