My Crock Pot doesn’t have that sparkly, fresh out of the box look anymore. It’s starting to dull, scratch, and peel, but that’s fine with me as long as it continues to work well. Whether your Crock Pot is well loved like mine or is still hiding out among the unused wedding gifts, you’ll want to pull it out for this recipe!
We think this hearty barbecued beef recipe is a keeper! Toss a chuck roast into the Crock Pot, cover it with a “doctored up” semi-homemade barbecue sauce, and let it slow cook all day. It really doesn’t get much easier or much tastier than that!
When I prepare barbecued beef sandwiches, I serve them on round rolls with a side of sweet potato fries and a salad and we always enjoy a fabulous, filling meal!
Barbecued Beef Sandwiches
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (4 pound) boneless chuck roast
In a large bowl, combine barbecue sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and liquid smoke. Stir in salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place chuck roast in a slow cooker. Pour ketchup mixture over chuck roast. Cover, and cook on low for 8 hours.
Before serving, use a fork to shred the beef and stir beef to evenly coat with sauce. Spoon meat onto rolls and top with additional barbecue sauce.
