Barbeque Beef Sandwiches with Red Onions and Blue Cheese

Still trying to use of the leftover pot roast, we made these delicious sandwiches for dinner last night. The red onions have been marinating since Sunday and the blue cheese gave such a nice flavor to complement the barbeque sauce. But I have to admit, I didn't do much measuring for this dish, so the quantities are approximate.

Hamburger buns
6 oz. leftover pot roast meat
1/2 C barbeque sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
1/4 C honey mustard
Blue cheese crumbles, to taste

For the Marinated Red Onions...
1/3 large red onion, sliced thin and cut in half
1 tsp honey
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar

Combine the onions and marinade ingredients and let sit overnight, at least.

When ready to prepare, combine the pot roast, barbeque and honey mustard in a small saucepan and simmer until warmed through, about 10-15 minutes. Stir occasionally, breaking apart any chunks of beef.

Toast the buns. Assemble with the barbequed beef on the bottom, blue cheese and then the marinated onions.

The onions were originally supposed to be for a spinach and almond salad, but I never ended up making it. I bet the onions could be used on top of just about anything. They were delicious!
