I’ve been making this recipe for years, and it never fails to win big grins from family and guests. The meat is tender, and the sauce is tangy with a little kick. —Lynn Henderson, Powell, Ohio


  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (about 3 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 12 kaiser rolls, split


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Sprinkle roast with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. In a Dutch oven, brown roast in oil on both sides; drain. Combine water, ketchup, onion, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, garlic and remaining salt and pepper; pour over meat.
  2. Cover and bake 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until meat is tender. Remove roast; let stand 5 minutes before slicing, Skim fat from cooking juices. Return meat to the pan; heat through. Serve on rolls.
