Overnight BBQ Beef Sandwiches

READY IN: 10hrs 20mins
Recipe by kellib626

I found this recipe on allrecipes, and wanted to get it into my cookbook because my family LOVED it! I used a roast instead of the brisket, and it fell apart, it was so tender. The sauce can be a little thin, so more cornstarch may be needed. I also ran the sauce through the blender while I was shredding the beef, because my family doesn't like chunky onions.

Made this to take to a potluck we had here in our mobile home park, & it was devoured in no time! I included plenty of small buns so more people could get a serving! Very tasty & a big success! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
