  • 1 Trim excess fat from beef. Cut beef into 4 pieces. Place beef in 4- to 5-quart slow cooker.
  • 2 Mix remaining ingredients except buns; pour over beef. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until beef is tender.
  • 3 Remove beef to cutting board. Cut into thin slices; return to cooker.
  • 4 Cover and cook on low heat setting 20 to 30 minutes longer or until beef is hot. Fill buns with beef mixture.

    Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

For a delicious kick, spread buns with horseradish sauce.

Take a dip! Sandwiches can be served au jus. Serve the juices left in the cooker in small bowls to dip the sandwiches into while eating to make each bite extra delicious!
