Slow-Cooked Beef Barbecue
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. The meat cooks in a tasty sauce while I'm at work. Then I just slice i thinly and serve it on rolls.

We really enjoyed this BBQ. Make sure you return it to the slow cooker after slicing (or shedding as the case may be) so the juicies are incorporated throughout; otherwise, it is a little dry.
