Expert Tips

To ensure locating a 3 1/2- to 4-lb roast, we suggest ordering it ahead of time or using 2 roasts to add up to the same weight. Trim the visible fat from the roast before cooking.

Toting this sandwich filling to a gathering? Loop a large, sturdy rubber band from handle to handle across the slow cooker cover to keep it sealed during transit.
