Tavern Style Pot Roast Sliders

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Whether it be for an every day dinner or a game day get-together, I love to make homemade food. Yeah, it would be easier to order a couple pizzas or pick up some deli trays from the supermarket - but where is the fun in that? This past weekend we had some friends and family over for game day and I decided to whip up something delicious, hand-held and fitting for a bunch of football fans - Tavern Style Pot Roast Sliders. These were seriously phenomenal. Melted Muenster cheese, juicy pot roast, crisp fried onions, spicy pepperoncinis and a garlic mayo spread - all sandwiched into a soft egg dinner roll. These sliders are flavorful, easy to make and were a hit with everyone in attendance.

There are a ton of different ways to season a roast but I'd recently heard about Campbell's Slow Cooker Sauces and decided to try out their Tavern Style Pot Roast flavor. The Campbell’s Sauces come in a variety of delicious flavors {Apple Bourbon Pulled Pork, Beef Stew, Southern BBQ, Sweet Korean BBQ & Hawaiian Pork} and make cooking in a slow cooker a breeze, whether it be for game day or an every day meal. I didn't have to worry about measuring out ingredients or rubbing them into meat which helped save time in the kitchen. Any time that I can save in the kitchen, especially when preparing food for game day, means more time for special moments like spending time with friends and family or throwing a football around with the kiddos. Also, less time in the kitchen means more time to watch football - which is what game day is really all about. I was certainly feeling the Campbell's theme, Made for Real, Real Life, when preparing this dish.

This was, without a doubt, one of the most wonderfully flavored pot roast that I've ever tried. It was succulent, tender and packed with flavor that is restaurant-worthy {a tavern to be exact}. Since the first game of the day starts at 9:30am I really tried to go for a recipe that would involve minimal time in the kitchen, leaving more time to enjoy our game day get together. I put a 2.5lb chuck roast into the Crock Pot at 5am, which seems early but is not too bad since all you'll be doing is putting the meat in the Crock Pot and then pouring a Campbell's Slow Cooker Sauce {Tavern Style Pot Roast} over the top. By noon the roast was done and my house smelled like I'd been cooking all day!

To save myself even more time on game day I prepared the garlic mayo the night before and then used toppings that came packaged ready to serve, such as french fried onions, sliced pepperoncinis, deli-sliced Muenster Cheese and deli-baked potato dinner rolls. I also planned a couple easy sides: onion rings and potato salad. When the meat was done cooking I threw the onion rings into the oven, sliced the meat and assembled the sliders then pulled the pre-made pasta salad out of the refrigerator. Before I knew it we were watching the next game of football while enjoying a seriously delicious lunch.

Top each slider in the following order: garlic mayonnaise, muenster cheese, pot roast, french fried onions, pepperoncinis. Spread some more garlic mayonnaise on the top half of each roll before placing on top of finished slider.
