"I make this beef in the slow cooker when I'm having a party so I don't have to spend the whole time in the kitchen," reports Lori Hayes, Venice, Florida. "The meat smells so delicious, I can hardly keep my husband from helping himself ahead of time!" For a robust sandwich, serve the shredded beef on a roll spread with horseradish sauce.
