Reviews for Shredded Beef 'n' Slaw Sandwiches
"This recipe has a bitter undertone from the cabbage that just didn't find appealing. The relatively sweet sauce was not enough to balance this out. I don't think I would recommend it."
"I used this recipe a couple of years ago for my son's birthday party and he doesn't like cabbage but raved about the sandwiches. They were a hit with all the guests and this is a wonderful recipe for a crowd."
"Was pretty good, but we still prefer shredded/pulled pork."
