Slow cooker pot roast sliders

Pot roast isn’t just for eating alone. Throw it on a bun and call it a slider! It’s a comforting Sunday dish that is perfect for lunch or dinner!

Pot Roast Sliders

Who doesn’t love a slider? These fresh little sandwiches are packed full of flavor and are a breeze to put together. They are great for using leftover pot roast but even better when made fresh. We topped ours with a little arugula but they would be great topped with cheese, too. The homemade horseradish sauce really pulls these sandwiches together and is a great addition to the flavor department.
