Shredded Beef Sandwiches – Slow Cooker

These tender, juicy Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Sandwiches are the perfect game day grub but make an excellent choice for any day of the week. This makes a sandwich similar to one I used to get at a local restaurant when I lived in a suburb of Chicago. My all time favorite! Serve on crusty rolls with roasted sweet or hot peppers, if desired.

In all seriousness though this is the easiest dinner I think I’ve ever made. You literally whisk the sauce together, pour it over the meat, let it cook in the crockpot all day and then shred and enjoy. And the amount of cooking you do? Zilch. Unless you count shredding as cooking.
