Barbecued Beef {recipe}

After having barbecued beef sandwiches at girls' night recently, I decided I needed to make barbecued beef for the family for dinner.  This meal is always a big hit and provides leftovers for a couple days.   I got the recipe out of a slow cooker cookbook years ago.  It is sooooooo good!

This was my lunch today.  A bbq beef sandwich, steamed green beans from our garden, and baby carrots.  YUM!  Although, I did end up having two sandwiches.  They were small, more like sliders since I put the meat on last night's homemade dinner rolls.

Normally when we have this for supper we have the bbq beef, mashed potatoes, and a vegetable.  Which is what we had last night.  Oh, and the homemade dinner rolls.  But today for lunch I put the meat on a dinner roll, sprinkled some cheddar cheese on top and put it under the broiler for a few minutes to warm and the cheese to melt and the bun to get toasty.  YUM!

The recipe:
3 pounds boneless chuck roast
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (I substituted minced garlic since I didn't have any powder)

Place roast in slow cooker.  Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl and mix well.  Pour mixture over roast.  Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.  Remove roast from slow cooker, shred meat with a fork and place shredded meat back in slow cooker.  Stir meat evenly to coat with sauce.

Spoon onto buns or serve with mashed potatoes, rice, or whatever you desire!  Enjoy!
