- Onions and Mushrooms – Adding in onions and mushrooms adds flavor to the liquid and beef.
- Brown the Beef – Some recipes call for browning the beef, it is not necessary but you can if you prefer.
- Dip Sandwich – The liquid from cooking the ingredients is so good. It is great for dipping or spooning of your hoagies.
- Butter the hoagies – For a crispy, hoagie butter them before placing the oven on a baking sheet. We love the crunch it gives.

Is this cooked on high or low for 6 hours? The recipe just says to cook “only” for 6 hours.
Lori – I’m sorry about that. I cook this recipe on low for 6 hours. I have updated the recipe and the post. Thank you!
Can you cook on high for 3-4 hours and get the same results?
