Italian Beef in Slow Cooker With French Fries

3 pounds chuck roast
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons garlic granules
1 1/2 cups frozen diced onions
1 (12-ounce) jar roasted red peppers (drained)
1 (16-ounce) jar banana pepper rings (drained)
2 cups tomato and basil pasta sauce
1 1/4 pounds frozen crinkle-cut French fries
seasoned salt, to taste
8 Bakery Chicago hard rolls

  1. Preheat slow cooker on high. Trim any excess fat from meat. Place in slow cooker. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and garlic granules. Wash hands.
  2. Add onions, roasted peppers, pepper rings and pasta sauce. Reduce heat to low. Cook 8 or more hours.
  3. 30 minutes before serving, preheat oven to 450°F. Place French fries on baking sheet in single layer. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and bake 15-18 minutes, or until golden, stirring once.
  4. While French fries bake, shred beef with fork in slow cooker and remove any excess fat. Shredding is easy because the beef is very tender. Serve beef on rolls, French fries alongside.
