Slow Cooked Pot Roast Sliders
I love this recipe because it reminds me of my moms home cooking. It is also lovely to get the taste of a sit-down meal, even if you don’t have the time to sit down.
- One boneless beef chuck roast (3 pounds)
- 1-1/2 cups water
- One envelope (1 ounce) onion soup mix
- One container (1 ounce) au jus gravy mix
- Two packages (12 ounces each ) Hawaiian sweet rolls, halved
- 12 slices Swiss cheese or any cheese you like, cut in half
- Sliced tomato, baby arugula, and horseradish sauce, optional
Step 1 – Put the pot roast in a 4-qt. Slow cooker. Using a small bowl, whisk together water, soup, and gravy mixes. Pour seasoning mixture over the pot roast.
Cook, covered, on low until tender, usually about 5-6 hours. Once it is fork tender remove from cooker. Let the roast cool for a bit to make it so you can handle it without burning yourself. Nest you will need to shred the meat using two forks.
Step 2 – Next, you want to preheat your broiler. Most ovens have a setting specifically named broil. Halve the rolls and then place them on a baking sheet. Put a piece of cheese on the bottom half of each roll.
Now broil the buns about 4 to 6 inches from the heat source until cheese is melted and rolls start to brown. This should take about 1- to 2 minutes. Then you will need to remove the buns from the broiler. Take a pair of tongs and place meat mixture onto the roll bottoms.
To add some zest to the slider, you can add a layer with tomato, some baby arugula, and horseradish sauce. Place the top of the roll onto the slider.
Serve and enjoy!
