Dilly Beef Sandwiches Recipe

"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."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours + cooling YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) whole dill pickles, undrained
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10 to 12 hamburger buns, split


  • 1. Cut roast in half and place in a 3-qt. slow cooker. Add pickles with juice, chili sauce and garlic. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until beef is tender.
  • 2. Discard pickles. Remove roast. When cool enough to handle, shred the meat. Return to the slow cooker and heat through. Using a slotted spoon, fill each bun with about 1/2 cup meat mixture. Yield: 10-12 servings.
