Reviews for Contest Winning Barbecued Beef Sandwiches
"Great flavor. The sauce doesn't overwhelm the beef, and you don't really taste the cabbage. Very easy too. I cooked it in my crock pot since I didn't want to heat up my kitchen. It took about four hours to cook the beef on high and then another couple hours after putting in the sauce and cabbage. Will definitely make again."
"Thanks for sharing this recipe. We've had a bulk of stew meat in the freezer and I've been wanting to make something other than your basic stew with it. I used your cooking method then once the meat was pulled apart I tossed it with a pepper plant brown sugar sauce I had left over from wings the other night. Perfect for sandwiches, burrito, taco...you name it!"
"A little high in sodium, but overall great flavor."
