Super Bowl BBQ Beef

If you are looking for an easy Super Bowl sandwich recipe to please the football fans in your life, definitely take a second and keep reading! This recipe sort of came about as a fluke. I originally planned to make mini pulled pork sandwiches, but I sent the fiancé to the store and he came back with a sixteen dollar beef roast. I was a little irritated at first, but figured it was not worth the effort or time to return a hunk of meat to Kroger and figured I could make it work. Being that I wanted to slow cook dinner, I simply changed up my plan and decided to go with BBQ beef sandwiches instead of pulled pork. The flavor of this BBQ beef is quite delectable and the sauce tastes very similar to Arby’s Sauce, which I love in large doses! This recipe could not be easier and it just might steal the spotlight at your Super Bowl party.

Toss it into the crock pot Sunday morning, and you’ll have the men drooling by game time. I served these up slider style on mini buns with a dollop of homemade cole slaw and alongside potato chips. This made for a very hearty dinner and great leftovers. If you are looking to add something to your Super Bowl Spread, give these a try. Remember to stop back over to let me know how you liked them…I love hearing from my fabulous readers!
