Today I had planned on making poppy seed chicken but at the last minute, we decided to head over to a local "safari"/petting zoo. I knew we would probably be getting back later, so I switched my menu to chuck roast barbecue. I just prepared it before we left, then when we came home, it was in the crockpot cooking away. Yum. (This recipe came from my momma)
Chuck Roast Barbecue
2 1/2 lbs chuck roast (boneless and trimmed)- I rarely can find an actual chuck roast. I just try to find a cut that is similar.
2 onions chopped (Honestly, if I served that much onion, my family would protest...I did like 1/4 of one...that was plenty for us)
1 12. oz can cola (I just get a 16 ounce bottle of Coke, pour 12 ounces in the mixture, then save the rest for those days that I am getting a caffeine headache.)
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar OR white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp beef bouillon granules (or one beef bouillon cube)
3/4 tsp dry mustard
3/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup ketchup
Of course, you know my firs step. The crockpot liner. No, I am not getting anything for mentioning them. I just really like them! Cleanup is SO much easier.
Place roast in slow cooker. Add onion.
Combine cola and the next 7 ingredients. Reserve and chill one cup sauce.
Pour remaining sauce over roast.
Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 9 hours or until roast is tender.
Remove roast/chopped onion from cooker.
Shred meat with two forks.
Combine reserved sauce and ketchup in a saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Pour sauce over shredded meat.
Serve on buns.
We toast our buns (hamburger buns that is) in the oven on warm.
I usually serve these with sweet potato fries. I used to make my own sweet potato fries. Now I buy a bag...Ore Ida I think? They are muy bueno!
Anyway, this is a family favorite...enjoy!
