In a pan add water, pepper, salt, oregano, onion salt, basil, and garlic cloves over a medium heat. Stir the mixture until it boils. Add the roast in a crockpot; pour the mixture over the roast and add the sweet peppers. Place the cover on the crockpot and leave it cooking throughout the day for 10-12 hours. Shred the roast with a fork. The beef will be very tender, and thats exactly what you want. Serve on Italian rolls and enjoy!
