Pot Roast Sliders

I love little sandwiches. They are so cute, and you don't need to feel bad about eating more than one. I am a huge fan of the ham and swiss sliders on those delicious Hawaiian rolls, and so I was so excited to see a beef version. I didn't use Hawaiian rolls for this one, just regular dinner rolls, which I think helped hold up to the saucy beef.

If you don't like sandwiches, then you should still make this pot roast! It is delicious! This beef would also be great in enchiladas, taquitos, or about anything else that you need shredded beef for - I love when a recipe can do double duty.

For the roast, combine the salsa, water, au jus mix,

Italian dressing and Onion soup mix in a large measuring cup and whisk well to incorporate all the ingredients. Place the roast in the bottom of your crock pot and pour the salsa mixture over the top.

Cover the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours. Meanwhile, make the chipotle sauce by combining the sour cream, horseradish sauce and sriracha (or chili sauce) in a small bowl. Stir well.

When you're ready to serve the sandwiches, cut each dinner roll in half and place the bottoms on a large cookie sheet. Place a piece of swiss cheese on the bottom halves of each roll, and bake for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the rolls are golden.

Heap a spoonful of roast beef on top of the swiss cheese, then replace the tops of the rolls.

Serve with the chipotle sauce. Note: the roast recipe will make enough beef for 24 sandwiches. If you only make 12 sandwiches, you can use the leftover beef in another recipe as mentioned above. (Or eat it plain with a fork!)
