Beef Barbecue Recipe

We like to keep our freezer stocked with plenty of beef roasts. When we're not in the mood for pot roast, I fix these satisfying sandwiches instead. The meat cooks in a tasty sauce while I'm work.

"This was delicious. My family and friends loved it! It did have a very mild flavor.

So I let the sauce reduce somewhat and added more barbecue sauce. It was great! I guess it could be spiced up ,but everyone loved it old and young. Even my 2 1/2 year old grandson ate a whole sandwich!"

"I found this to be quite sweet and the sauce very runny. Could have been the barbeque sauce I used... I agree with the last reviewer, it could use some more spice too."

"We thought it was a little tart and a bit too sweet. I would try something with a little more spice next time."
