This recipe reminds me of my mom’s famous pot roast. Best of all, these sandwiches are simple to make with only a few ingredients. I love that I can enjoy the flavors of Mom’s roast with the delicious portability of a slider. —Lauren Drafke, Cape Coral, Florida

1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)
1-1/2 cups water
1 envelope (1 ounce) onion soup mix
1 envelope (1 ounce) au jus gravy mix
2 packages (12 ounces each ) Hawaiian sweet rolls, halved
12 slices Swiss cheese (3/4 ounce each), cut in half
Optional: Horseradish sauce, sliced tomato and baby arugula
Place roast in a 4-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, whisk together water and the soup and gravy mixes. Pour seasoning mixture over roast. Cook, covered, on low until tender, 5-6 hours. Remove from cooker. Cool slightly; shred meat with 2 forks.
Preheat broiler. Place halved rolls on a baking sheet. On each bottom half, place a cheese piece. Broil buns 4-6 inches from heat until cheese is melted and rolls start to brown, 1-2 minutes. Remove from broiler. Using tongs, place meat mixture on roll bottoms. If desired, layer with horseradish sauce, tomato and baby arugula. Replace roll tops.
Test Kitchen tip
Try the sandwiches with a more flavorful cheese such as aged Swiss or white cheddar.
