John Madden's Bbq Beef Sandwiches

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Zesty and tangy! From "John Madden's Ultimate Tailgating"... this is a fabulous BBQ beef recipe for those Sunday or Monday Night Football parties, tailgating at the stadium, or just 'cause they're soooo good. Cook time doesn't include preparation of the roast.

Top Review by Lucky Clover

I LOVE BBQ, and this is some of the BEST! Definitely the best I have ever fixed. We loved it! I made the roast in the crock pot so it would be nice and tender, and I used another reviewer's suggestion of using beef broth instead of water. Other than that, I made it exactly as directed. Thanks for the recipe! It will be going in my favorites.
