This slow cooker New Orleans roast beef po boy is all I need on a cold day. Nothing fancy, just great-tasting tender beef that melts in your mouth. On a French bread loaf (real po boy bread is something that’s hard to come by here in Indy. although I do occasionally make my own), topped with a slice or two of cheese, slathered with plenty of mayonnaise. That’s it.
Oh sure, I could add shredded iceberg and some tomato slices and maybe some onion. Not this time. Just give me that great New Orleans roast beef po boy flavor and I’ll be a happy guy.
You could actually serve this slow cooker New Orleans roast beef po boy like a French dip. Just serve a bowl of the juices from the cooker on the side. The shredded beef is also great over tortilla chips as nachos. Just add some cheese, salsa and whatever your favorite nacho toppings might be!
