Shredded Barbecue Beef Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries

Steve LOVES barbecue so he'll be happy when he comes home tonight. I bought a pot roast this past week for this specific meal. It's really easy (which we all love), the meat just needs to cook for a long time.

1 pot roast (buy according to what you need)
your favorite barbecue sauce
cheese (Steve prefers swiss)
Brown meat on all sides on high heat in some olive oil - I like to cover with salt and pepper too. After meat is browned, add enough water in pot to cover half way. After water starts to boil, turn down to simmer. Simmer long enough (atleast 3 hours) for the meat to fall apart when pulled with a fork. If you choose, you can use a crockpot and let it simmer in the barbecue sauce - I prefer to add the sauce after it's done cooking. Shred the beef and serve on rolls with barbecue sauce.

Have you ever tried Sweet Potato Fries? If not, I dare you! Take 5 sweet potatoes and wash and peel them. Chop them into strips and coat with olive oil, brown sugar and sprinkle with cinnamon, salt and pepper. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or so.
Yummy! Chef Bon
