Beef chuck roast gives this classic sandwich and its rich broth a hearty flavor. Add a crusty roll and you have a filling meal. This is also a terrific do-ahead recipe that can be prepared several days before serving. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • French bread, sliced lengthwise
  • Optional: Sliced provolone cheese or Swiss cheese


  1. Place roast on a trivet in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker; sprinkle with oregano, rosemary, seasoned salt and pepper. Add broth, bay leaf and garlic. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 1-1/4 hours.
  2. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure. A thermometer inserted in beef should read at least 145°.
  3. Remove beef; thinly slice or shred with 2 forks. Discard bay leaf and garlic from cooking juices. Serve beef with French bread. If desired, top with sliced cheese. Serve with cooking juices for dipping.
