Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

3 lbs boneless chuck roast
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Seeded sandwich buns

Place the roast in a crockpot or slow cooker.  In a large mixing bowl combine the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, salt, pepper, and garlic.  Pour the sauce mixture over the roast.  Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or 1/2 that time on high.

Remove the roast from the cooker and using a fork, shred the meat for sandwiches.  Return the meat to the cooker and stir to coat the meat evenly with the sauce.  Spoon onto the sandwich buns and top meat with additional sauce, if desired.

Yield: 12 sandwiches
