  6. After 7 hours use two forks and pull apart and let it sit in the juice for another hour, keeping the crockpot on low.
  7. During that last hour make your carmelized onions if you desire and get your bread sliced, buttered and toasted with the cheese on top so it's nice and melty.
  8. Add the meat to the sandwiches and plate with a ramekin of au jus from the crockpot, mayo and carmelized onions.

    Oh wow Kelly, these look amazing! I’ve never tried one of these pulled-roast type sandwiches. They seem so popular in the States, but it’s just not something you see over here. I can’t wait to try something that for us is completely different! They look so delicious, I’m sure they’ll be a huge hit! Thanks for the inspiration. :)
