A chuck roast slow-simmered in a beefy broth is delicious when shredded and spooned onto rolls. Carla Kimball of Callaway, Nebraska serves the cooking juices in individual cups for dipping.

"I am giving this 5 stars because the recipe is so easy and the dipping sauce is absolutely delicious. My family loved it. I have to say I used a chuck roast as directed and cooked it on low for the directed time and it was tender but not as tender as we hoped. We had to mostly cut it because it didn't shred very easily. I will make this again but will probably use a different cut of beef . A fantastic recipe!! :-)"

"GREAT!! So good and so much better than store bought roast beef and package au jus mix! I just add a little cheese after it's on the buns and broil them. Fantastic!"

"This has been one of my "go to" easy meals, since it was first published. I still had kids at home, then, and EVERYONE loves it! Put this in my slow cooker before I left for work yesterday and shredded it, when I got home. We put it on our buns, added slices of cheese (pepper jack, this time) and set it under the broiler until the cheese melted. YUMMY!!!!! It only takes 2-3 minutes prep time--REALLY!! I highly recommend it!!!!
