I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

BBQ Beef Sandwich

I love meals that I can cook in the slow cooker.  This is easy and so good.  A great meal for a pot-luck dinner too.


BBQ BEEF SANDWICH
(serves 12)

Ingredients:
*3 pound chuck roast, rinsed & dried
*1 large onion, chopped
*2 garlic cloves, minced
*2 tablespoon olive oil
*1 pound cherry/grape tomatoes, sliced
*3 cups barbecue sauce (I make my own)
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon black pepper
*12 hamburger buns

Directions:
~In a large, heavy pot or dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat.
~Add onions & garlic, cook until onions are translucent.
~Add tomatoes.
~Add barbecue sauce.
~Increase heat to medium high heat for about 10 minutes.
~Add roast.
~Bring heat down to a low simmer, cover and cook about 4 hours or until roast is falling apart tender, stirring occasionally.
~Remove the roast from the pot.
~Separate the roast into small pieces & set aside.
~Increase the heat to medium-high, uncover, cook until the liquid reduces and becomes thick.  Stir often so it won't burn.
~Return roast to pot.
~Add salt & pepper and heat meat throughly.
~Scoop onto buns & serve.

Variations:
