Ingredients

  • 2
    to 3 lb beef boneless chuck roast
  • 1
    tablespoon Montreal steak seasoning
  • 1 1/2
    teaspoons salt
  • 1
    tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2
    tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2
    tablespoons Muir Glen™ organic tomato paste
  • 1
    tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4
    cup packed brown sugar
  • 2
    cups thinly sliced yellow onion
  • 6
    cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2
    tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2
    tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 12
    burger buns, split
  • 2
    cups shredded Swiss cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/4
    cup chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Trim excess fat from beef. Rub beef with steak seasoning and salt. In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook beef in oil 2 to 3 minutes on two sides, until browned. Transfer to slow cooker.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat melted butter, tomato paste and mustard with whisk. Stir in brown sugar. Stir in onion and garlic; pour over beef. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until beef is tender.
  • 3
    Remove beef to cutting board; let stand 5 to 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix cornstarch and vinegar. Stir into liquid in slow cooker; cover and cook on High heat setting 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture thickens. Shred beef; return to cooker.
  • 4
    Position oven rack 4 inches from broiling element. Set oven control to broil. Place buns, split sides up, on large cookie sheet. Divide cheese evenly among bun tops. Broil 1 to 3 minutes or until buns are toasted and cheese melts. Divide beef mixture evenly among bun bottoms. Sprinkle with parsley, then top with bun tops.

  • Need a new appetizer? Instead of serving the beef on buns, spoon on top of crostini, top with shredded Gruyere and broil just until cheese melts. Top with chopped parsley.
  • For a fancier version of this yummy sandwich, use split baguette and shredded Gruyere instead of buns and Swiss cheese.
