Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

Hot food season is definitely upon us!  Here in the Pacific Northwest it has dipped down into the 20s in the early morning and late evening, and I know that many parts of the country are getting their first snowfalls!  I have really enjoyed seeing the pictures circulating on Facebook from my friends in Albany, NY (where I used to live), as they got their first snowfall of the season a few days ago.

Soups and stews are GREAT, but in case you’re tired of “the usual,” then this slow cooker barbecue beef sandwich recipe is perfect!  The recipe comes from Eat 2 Gather’s website, however is a guest post by Just For Clicks, which appears to now be defunct (it looks like the recipe came from Southern Living Slow Cooker Cookbook originally).  This is an “easy-peasy” recipe (ugh, that saying really annoys me, but I know it’s really popular right now), that you can throw together in the morning and then have a delicious smelling and tasting dinner in the evening!

I apologize for the weird, glossy/shiny looking pictures.  I don’t know how that happened.  But this is really good.
