Slow Cooker Three-Envelope Pot Roast Sliders

I have a couple of blog updates, but sadly, no photos. I know, I know...the camera and I don't always make it to the same place at the same time. I feel mildly guilty about no pics, but at least the recipe(s) I've been meaning to update will get posted. Phew! That made me feel a little better...

Anyway, this was a really great recipe for doing something a little different with pot roast. My family loved these sandwiches and everything came together easily (thanks to the slow cooker). The sauce in the original recipe is called a "chipotle" sauce, but that totally bothers me! There are not any actual chipotle flavors and/or peppers in the sauce, so I needed to rename it. It just makes more sense to me to call it something else. (Okay, so I'm a little anal that way.) Other than the name change on the sauce, I followed this recipe to the letter and these sammies turned out fabulously. I think we just had a side salad to go with them and that was it. Filling and delicious...we gobbled 'em up!

Slow Cooker Three-Envelope Pot Roast Sliders
Adapted From: Six Sisters' Stuff blog


1 3-4 lb beef roast
1 cup water
1 cup salsa
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 envelope Italian dressing mix
1 envelope Au Jus mix

Three Envelope Pot Roast recipe (above), shredded
1 pkg. King's Hawaiian Rolls or plain dinner rolls
Sliced Swiss cheese (1 slice per slider)
Creamy-Spicy Horseradish Sauce (recipe below)

Creamy-Spicy Horseradish Sauce:
1/4 cup sour cream
2 Tbsp chili sauce
2 tsp creamy horseradish sauce


For Roast:
Whisk together water, salsa and seasoning packets. Place roast in slow cooker. Pour seasoning mixture over roast. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or high for 4-5 hours.

For Sliders:
Cut each roll in half and place on a baking sheet. Place a slice of Swiss cheese on the bottom half of each roll. Place baking sheet in oven with broiler on low. Broil for 1-2 minutes or until edges of the rolls are golden and cheese has melted (be sure to watch them closely so they don't burn!). Remove baking sheet from oven.

Place a spoonful of shredded beef on top of each roll with Swiss cheese on it. Spread Creamy-Spicy Horseradish Sauce on the top half of each roll. Assemble each slider by placing the top half of the roll on top of the bottom.
