Easy Barbecued Beef With Crusty Rolls (Microwave)

This is the most wonderful tasting way to use up any left over cooked beef, my family loves these sandwiches, I always make a large roast so I can have leftovers just to make this recipe! I usually serve them up with fries, this recipe is very easy to make as it is prepared in the microwave, but if desired this could also be prepare in a saucepan.

This is an excellent way to use up that leftover roast beef! And seeing that there are only two of us, I am always on the lookout for ideas. This was soooo easy to do (I rarely cook in the microwave!) and the flavor was tangy and delicious. I added a couple tablespoons of chili sauce (I was low on ketchup) but otherwise made exactly as posted. Also, I didn't have any crusty rolls, so I served the beef over rice - yum! Thanks, Kit!!

We thought this was good, but only if you don't think of it as BBQ!! It is tasty, but not what I think of as a BBQ sandwich! Thanks for sharing! :O)
