  1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 1- ½-quart slow cooker. Place meat in cooker. Sprinkle with oregano, crushed red pepper, and garlic. Pour tomato juice over all.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3- ½ to 4 hours. If no heat setting is available, cook for 6 to 7 hours.
  3. Remove meat from cooker, reserving cooking juices. Using two forks, shred the meat. If desired, stir roasted pepper strips into shredded meat. Place shredded meat on bottoms of French bread pieces. Drizzle enough of the cooking juices over meat to moisten. Sprinkle shredded meat with cheese. Cover with tops of French bread pieces.
