Texas Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

Texas Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

We’ve used deli roast beef in these sandwiches for convenience, but using leftover cooked beef, pork or chicken would also be great to give leftovers a tasty facelift.

1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 small (1/2 cup) onion, chopped
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cider or white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
2 pounds thinly sliced cooked deli roast beef, cut into strips
12 hamburger buns, split
12 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American


Combine all ingredients except beef, hamburger buns and cheese in 4-quart slow cooker; stir in beef. Cover; cook on High heat setting 2-3 hours or until flavors are blended. Reduce heat to Low to keep warm.

Spoon beef mixture evenly over bottom half of buns; top each with 1 slice cheese. Place top half of bun over cheese.

Stovetop Directions: Stir together all ingredients except beef, hamburger buns and cheese in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Stir in beef; cook 15-18 minutes or until heated through.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

This was easy and tasted okay, and the homemade barbecue sauce was very good, but the slow-cooking left the deli roast beef a little tough. If I made this again, I would probably use leftover chicken or turkey.
