"My friends and I made this over the weekend to feed a small gathering of friends before and after a concert. It not only made "the best" sandwiches but also served as a tasty dip for chips."
"Easy to make, delicious to eat! I made it the day before guests arrived and reheated it in the slow cooker a few hours before they arrived. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. Definately a keeper!"
"This was delicious. I did add liquid smoke to the sauce. My roast was just over 3 lb. I did not pour all of the thickened sauce over the shredded beef."
