Snappy Barbecue Beef Sandwiches Recipe

Meet the Cook: My husband and I do a lot of one-pot cooking (he taught me to cook after we were married!). The beef in these sandwiches is like an oven stew, but we'll often prepare it in a slow cooker - putting it on in the morning so we can just dish it up when we get home from work. Jerry is a rural mail carrier, and I am a nurse (this recipe came from one of the cookbooks that our hospital employees regularly compile). We have two grown sons...both of whom cook! -Patricia Throlson, Clear Lake, Minnesota.
