Combine water with the Beef Soup Base and Chicken Soup Base with ground black pepper, Greek oregano, sweet California basil, parsley, fancy garlic salt, onion powder, bay leaf, Back-of-the-Yards, and Italian dressing base in a saucepan. Stir well, and bring to a boil.
Place roast in slow cooker, and pour dressing mixture over the meat. Cover, and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours, or on high for 4 to 5 hours. When done, remove bay leaf, and shred meat with a fork.
Take the sliced red onions (or Vidalia onions) and saute them and serve them with the beef.
Serve on crusty Italian rolls.

If you want a nice smokey flavor, add 1 - 2 teaspoons of either Hickory or Mesquite Smoke, that has no salt added, during the last hour of cooking. Use some of the liquid on the sandwich, it has a very nice flavor. The soup bases used in this order are sold in The Spice House Milwaukee location only.

We love Italian Beef. One thing that I do is add Pepperoncini as well as some of the juice. Chuck roast is also a great cut of meat for this too.
Italian beef was the best homemade I’ve ever made. I would definately make this again. Awesome
I substituted a can of chicken broth and a can of beef broth for the soup bases, which I didn’t have. In my opinion, the recipe is good but too peppery, my wife said the pepper level was OK, so that’s a 50/50 vote. I will make this again, but next time I’ll delete that teaspoon of pepper.
