MY REVIEW

"I made this for a Super Bowl party and prepared the recipe as printed with the exception that I nearly doubled the amount of meat and did double the sauce. I tend to like a good ratio of sauce to meat and found the additional sauce thickened perfectly and provided the perfect amount. I provided a variety of slider size rolls and noticed some elected to pile it high on a plateful of tortilla chips. It was a hit and I will make this again without changing a thing."

"I didn't cook mine in a slow cooker, but I did use the BBQ sauce recipe. The only thing I changed was I used 1 cup of regular ketchup and 1 cup of jalapeno ketchup and omitted the pepper flakes. I put everything in a pressure cooker for 1 1/2 hours. Came out delicious!"

"This recipe was delicious. The only adjustment I made was using brown sugar in place of the molasses since that is what I had on hand. This will be my go to BBQ beef recipe from now on! Thanks!"
