What a wonderful sandwich ! The meat is so tender and full of flavor. And paired with the crunchy coleslaw which has a tinge of tartness, it is the perfect sandwich for all ages.

The beef short rib is ideal to use in this recipe for BBQ Pulled Beef Sandwiches. And a huge bonus for cooking the meat in the slow-cooker !

Besides browning the meat (which only takes a couple of minutes) the meat and marinade/sauce is thrown together in no time at all.

You can let the meat cook, and about 15 minutes before it is done cooking, make the coleslaw. The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender, therefore you won’t have to spend too much time shredding the meat.

The coleslaw is delicious on it’s own as well, so if you have any left (or make a double batch!) have it the following day for lunch with some cold meat.

I have to be honest, I think the creamed Horseradish makes this coleslaw a winner !

One of these sandwiches may not look like much, but it is very filling and I could only manage one (but, I did go back for seconds later!).

Such a great sandwich to serve for lunch, on game day or as a light dinner.

You know I have never tried "pulled" meat of any kind. Weird because I know my lot would love this!
