Chuck roast makes delicious shredded beef sandwiches after simmering in a rich, homemade sauce all day. The meat is tender and juicy and takes minutes to prepare for a weeknight dinner or potluck. —Tatina Smith, San Angelo, Texas

"Easy and Good. The house has a nice aroma while the beef is cooking in the crock pot."

MY REVIEW

"This, with some minor modifications, came out fantastic. My chuck roast fit in the bottom of my 6-qt slow cooker, so I didn't bother to cut it in half. After cooking and allowing it to cool but before shredding, I removed the gelatinous fat and gristle from the roast. I used Chili Sauce -- which helpfully comes in 1 1/2 cup bottles -- instead of ketchup, doubled the garlic powder and added a half teaspoon of onion powder as well. Also, after straining the sauce and skimming off the fat with a gravy separator, I added a 6 oz can of tomato paste to thicken the mixture."

"Enjoyed by all and will definitely make this again. I put the cooked chuck roast chunks in the stand mixer and turned it into "pulled pork" in a few seconds. No more forks for me!"
