      After putting the spices in the crockpot I realized I had used tsp. instead of Tbls. I decided not to add more because I thought Tablespoons of garlic powder and red pepper flakes especially sounded way too spicy for my family. I'm really glad I didn't because it was indeed spicy enough with the tsp. amounts. We enjoyed the sandwiches a great deal. A little mayo on the bun was also good. Thanks for posting! I know I'll be making them again! I served them with Ww Cheese Fries and Extra Special Steamed Green Beans.

      I tripled this recipe and put it in two slow cookers. I only used enough of the spices for one recipe and it was plenty. I mixed the broth and spices in a plastic pitcher and pored it into the slow cookers to evenly devide it. Nine hours later the beef shredded easily and the au jus was delicious. Everyone loved it on nice rolls and it was very tasty for the next two days. I roasted some peppers and they added a nice touch. I know I will make this again and again.

      Perfect as is! I haven't used the slow cooker in years and decided to look for something easy. This was not only too easy, it tastes fantastic. My husband asked for it again but with onions and bell pepper. I'll give it a try. Thank you!
