Reviews for Shredded BBQ Beef Sandwiches
"I thought this recipe was absolutely delicious. A chuck pot roast works perfectly for this recipe. It shredded nicely and had great flavor with the sauce. I would definitely make this tasty dish again for my family."
"This was a good recipe. There was a lot of fat in the chuck roast though which gave the bbq a slimy texture. I think the sauce would go well with a shredded chicken bbq or a trimmed brisket."
"Tried this for Father's Day and it was excellent. I did drain the juices after removing the meat, and added BBQ sauce and liquid smoke to the meat before warming and serving."
