Roast beef is usually cooked slowly for sandwiches, then sliced and covered in cheese before it is put into a sandwich. The flavor is amazing but the time it takes to make the beef is a bit of an issue. We don’t have the time to sit around and wait for the beef to roast safely. Luckily, we can use a slow cooker shredded beef sandwiches recipe to enjoy.
That is the beauty of a slow cooker. It can give the recipe the time it deserves to really fill out with flavor. But there is also little risk of letting the slow cooker sit and cook while you go out and run errands or work around the house. Slow cooker shredded beef sandwiches are easy to make for lunch or dinner and are a simple crockpot meal planning recipe the whole family can enjoy.
Slow cooker shredded beef sandwiches are very easy to make. There is nothing better than finding a simple recipe that produces amazing results. That is often the case when it comes to crockpot recipes. Crockpots make cooking so much easier. You can often just toss everything in the slow cooker, set it, and forget it.
Beef is also one of the best things to make in a crockpot because it really benefits from cooking slowly. The juices meld together and the beef comes out juicy and tender. That is what makes this recipe really worth trying. You just need to cook the beef, shred it how you like it, and then build the sandwiches.
You can then pack the sandwiches for later and enjoy them however you’d like.
Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Sandwiches Ingredients
This ingredients list is going to be a very short one. There aren’t many things you will need because the beef will come pre-marinated. The first and most important ingredient is the Cabernet beef pot roast from Trader Joe’s. You could use any pre-marinated beef pot roast you like.
This one just so happens to be one of our favorites. Ciabatta rolls make for great sandwiches but you could also use any type of bread you prefer as well. The last things you will need will help you build the sandwich when the beef is ready. Swiss cheese slices and a yellow onion is all it takes.
You’re almost ready for one of the best slow cooker shredded beef sandwiches you have ever made.
Sear pot roast in a cast iron pan on all sides.
Cook pot roast in a crockpot on high for 6 hours or on low for 12 hours.

Cook the onions for 20-25 minutes or until the onions are soft and caramelized.
