  • 1 beef roast (3-4lbs)

  4. Pour mixture evenly over roast.

  5. Place lid on slow cooker and allow to cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for about 4 hours.

  6. Shred meat using two forks.

  7. Cut buns in half lengthwise and scoop meat onto bottom slice.

  8. Place one piece of provolone cheese on top (I tore the cheese in half and placed the two halves on the bread to cover sandwich better).
