Slow Cooker Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

Tired of the same old dinners, need some fresh ideas, some new tricks for planning ahead, and making family meal time happen?!  What’s for dinner Wednesdays to the rescue!!

So here’s my Dinner Dilemma recipe for you all…..

I literally use my Slow Cooker about 3 nights a week.  With after school activities there just isn’t time to prepare a meal without it.  So on my weekly meal plans, I mark the days I know I need to use my Slow Cooker and go in search of new recipes to try.

One source I’ve used in my Southern Living Slow Cooker cookbook, which is where today’s recipe originated:

I also made a broccoli slaw mix I picked up at Trader Joe’s to top the sandwiches and served corn on the cob with sweet potato fries.
