Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

I made this for dinner today and it was oober yummy and well received by the Mikey.

BBQ Beef Sandwiches
3 Pound beef boneless chuck roast
1 C. BBQ sauce
1/2 C. apricot preserves
1/3 C. green bell pepper
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp. packed brown sugar
1 small onion, sliced
12 kaiser or hamburger buns

1. Trim fat from beef. Cut beef into 4 pieces. Place beef in 4 to 5 quart slow cooker.

2. Mix remaining ingredients except buns; pour over beef. Cover and cook on low heat for 7 to 8 hours or until beef in tender.

3. Remove beef to cutting board; cut into thin slices; return to cooker.

4. Cover and cook on low for 20 to 30 minutes longer or until beef is hot. Us slotted spoon to remove meat from drippings. Fill buns with beef mixture.

Note: apricot preserves can be substituted with peach or orange marmalade.

I used a vinegar based BBQ sauce so if you don't I recommend adding 1 or 2 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar. Also I diced the onions instead of slicing them and shredded the meat because it was so tender and moist it was falling apart.
