Got the idea for this from another blogger: http://beyerbeware.blogspot.com/2010/12/hunk-of-meat-monday-italian-beef.html I used Italian seasoning, dried onion, fennel seeds, and a can of beer. Cooked it in the slow cooker, added some Madeira. Then took it out, shredded it, reduced the liquid, and put it back in the cooker. I made some whole grain sourdough rolls as well. I used unbleached AP flour, and Hungarian High Altitude flour. yumm!
