barbecue beef sandwiches

as a little girl, i lived in texas. this is the closest i've come to what i remember to be the perfect barbecue beef sammie. yummy with steak fries, corn on the cob and a big green salad. (and this is easy, did i tell you it's easy yet? it's a crock pot dump!)

barbecue beef sandwiches
recipe from allrecipes, adapted by rachelle

1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. mustard
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
4 lb. boneless chuck roast
for serving:
8 hamburger buns or hoagie rolls
8 slices cheddar cheese
sliced red onion
In a bowl, combine ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire, liquid smoke, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Pour mixture over roast in crock pot. Cook on high 8 hours. Remove and shred the roast, replace in crock pot and stir. Cook 1 hour more. (or use a cooked leftover Sunday roast- only cook 1 hr on low, shred, cook 1 more hour.) Preheat your broiler. Butter the top buns and put a big pile of shredded meat on the bottom buns. Put a slice of cheddar cheese over the meat. Leave the sandwiches open and let the buttered tops brown while the cheese melts. Watch them carefully so they don't burn. (don't leave them, they burn so fast, could you ever forgive yourself?) Serve with a slap of pickles, sliced red onion and some mayonnaise.
*if you are using leftover roast, omit water. i like to double the sauce (but only use 1 cup water total) for a really saucy sammie-
