  • 1 (3 to 5 pound ) rump roast, rolled
  • 3/4 cup flour (or as needed)
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 5 cups water, divided
  • 4 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 6 tiny hot peppers
  • 2 bay leaves
  • pepper to taste
  • Mozzarella cheese and pepperoncini peppers (as needed)
  • sliced french bread
  1. Coat the roast with flour and brown in a dutch oven or similiar pan in shortening on top of the stove.
  2. After browned on all sides, drain off the grease and add 3 cups of water. Cover and simmer for 1 hour.
  3. Put roast (including remaining liquid) in a slow cooker and let it simmer all day on low (8 to 10 hours).
  4. Remove from liquid and cool meat completely, reserving liquid.
  5. After meat is cooled, slice thinly with an electric knife. Add all beef and reserve liquid to large pot.
  6. Add 2 more cups of water, spices, bay leaves, peppers and beef cubes and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer on low for 1 hour.
