Mile-High Shredded Beef Sandwiches

Found this recipe in one of the Fix It And Forget It Crock Pot books. I changed up a few ingredients. I will post the recipe from the book and then the changed ingredients at the bottom. These were amazing my way, but sure the original recipe is great also.

How to Make Mile-High Shredded Beef Sandwiches


  1. The way I made it: place roast in crock pot with sliced onions & broth. Set for 6 hrs.
  2. Remove meat and get rid of any fat. Remove liquid from pot. Shred beef; set aside.
  3. Sauce: combine either the ones listed or the ones I used. Return meat to crock pot, pour sauce and mix well. Heat back up on low until ready to serve.
  4. Assemble each roll with a large scoop of meat and place coleslaw on top if you desire.
  5. For my coleslaw I bought the coleslaw in the bag and Marie's Coleslaw dressing in the produce department. Easy, fast & so good.
