  1. Cut roast in half and place in a slow cooker. Add pickles with juice, chili sauce and garlic. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until beef is tender. Discard pickles. Remove roast. When cool enough to handle, shred the meat. Return to the sauce and heat through. Using a slotted spoon, fill each bun with about 1/2 cup meat mixture.

This was only rated fair at my house. It seemed like something was missing, but I'm not sure what that would be. We won't be making it again. Sorry.

I would increase the chili sauce to 1 cp. just to make more sauce. My son doesn't like pickles at all, and he loved these loosemeat sandwiches.
