This tangy sandwich filling is so easy to prepare in the slow cooker, and it goes over well at gatherings large and small. I frequently take it to potlucks, and I'm always asked for my secret ingredient. —Marylou LaRue, Freeland, Michigan
My mother-in-law created this recipe in the early 1950s. She prepared it many, many times before she was happy with the end result. Our family likes these satisfying sandwiches served with pickles and potato chips.

In Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, Sandra Castillo simmers up a big batch of this tangy sandwich filling, then freezes the extras. "Just thaw and reheat it for a quick dinner. It's also good for larger gatherings," she writes.
