Reviews for Shredded Barbecue Beef Sandwiches
"The beef was excellent, with or without the buns. I might recommend skimming some of the fat from the sauce before storing for leftovers."
"This is my family's go to recipe for a busy night. Great flavor! Loved by all!"
"I don't have a sweet tooth by any means, but my husband & I found this to be slightly on the sour side. I ended up adding a little extra brown sugar & we both liked it much better that way the next day."
"The addition of dill pickles is what sets this one apart from many very good shredded beef sandwich recipes I have. This one will be added to the collection!"
"Yes it is great"
"This has a nice flavor, not too bold or overwhelming. It's even better the next day for lunch."
" Thank you! "
"Some people do like salt. I would add it."
"963 mg sodium is obscene and ridiculous. No recipe needs additional salt (1 tsp!) that contains canned beef broth (super salty), Worcestershire and steak sauces & ketchup!"
"I use an English or Chuck Roast. It is cheaper and more flavorful.Donna"
"Is there a less expensive cut of meat that could be substituted? With cooking that long, I would think a lesser cut of meat would be just as good."
"The meat was very tender tasty. I drained the meat in a slotted spoon to avoid soggy hamburger buns, and served with a side of cole slaw. The family enjoyed it."
