Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Tip: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer's directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature. Total time will vary with appliance and setting.
  • Tip 2
    Special Touch: For a delicious kick, spread buns with horseradish sauce.
  • Tip 3
    Variation: Take a dip! Sandwiches can be served au jus. Serve the juices left in the cooker in small bowls to dip the sandwiches into while eating to make each bite extra delicious!
