  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • 1 (2 1/2 to 3-pound) boneless chuck roast, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 2 cups beef broth (1 can is fine)
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 6 hoagie rolls
  • 12 slices Provolone cheese


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper and cook until seared on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Transfer to a slow cooker.
  • Add onions to the skillet and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.
  • Add onions to crock pot along with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf, garlic and thyme. Cover and cook on LOW for 9-10 hours.
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut rolls in half and line insides with cheese slices, using 2 slices per hoagie roll. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes, until cheese is nicely melted.
  • Remove the meat from the crock pot and place in a bowl. Use a fork to shred it.
  • To serve, stuff each hoagie with beef and onions and serve with cooking liquid.
