Weight Watchers Points Value = 7 per BBQ beef sandwich


  1. are you including the roll in the 7 points?, and is it the points plus system?

    • Yes, that includes the roll. But this recipe is still on the old Points system, not the new Points +.

    This sounds and looks great but how much meat goes on one sandwich to make it 7 points?

      Hopefully135 – the recipe makes 12 servings, so 1/12 of the total meat is what you’ll use per sandwich. Thanks for reading!

  3. Oh, that may be the prettiest picture I've ever seen with the watermelon and baked beans and corn in the background. That's just lovely. Did you take it?
    I know a lot of people doing the points system. Thanks for putting this out there!

    I love the few recipes of yours that I have tried and I keep looking for new ones to try. I am curious about this one as the points seem as though they may vary depending on if you make 10 or 12 sandwiches. Also does the points value count the rolls? Thanks!!
