We loved this!! I used 2 roasts, but kept all the rest the same. I also added a bunch of pepperoncinis. Served on toasted buns with thin sliced jack cheese. Made for Saucy Silverados and the ZWT #9.

We really didn't like this. It was very bland. However, I used Recipe #20158 and that could have been the problem.

A nice and simple dish. These sandwiches would be really good topped with provolone cheese. It was definitely a nice change from shredded B-B-Q beef sandwiches. I loved the fact that I had a tasty dinner for New Years day and I didn't have to spend time in the kitchen to prepare it-- thanks Paula. Made and reviewed for Aus/Nz #24 Swap Ok, this is the first time I have added to a post, but I had to let you all know that I found the meat to be even more flavorful after refrigerating over night. And it is outstanding when served toasted in the oven with Mozzarella cheese then topped off with fresh basil leaves and some red wine vinegar! You must give it a try.
