"My younger sister, Jean, shared this recipe, which puts a twist of the traditional barbecue sandwich," writes Donna Blankenheim of Madison, Wisconsin. "As a busy mother of four, Jean never has much time to cook, but she does like to entertain. This crowd-pleaser, made in a convenient slow cooker, is perfect for our large family gatherings."

"Thanks for posting this! I found it years ago in one of the Taste of Living magazines and lost it. This is great for those who don't really care for 'sweet' BBQ!"

"This was amazingly good. I can't even eat dill pickles normally. My husband rates this as the best way to eat shredded beef."
