This is a go to recipe that I use often when having a gathering. I found this recipe years ago in Taste of Home. The sauce makes these sandwiches! The beef shreds easily and everyone just loves the taste. This will serve up to 20 so it is a great large crowd recipe. Or make it and freeze some for later.

Ingredients

FOR THE SAUCE:

3 c
chopped celery
1 c
chopped onion
1 c
ketchup
1 c
barbeque sauce
1 c
water
2 Tbsp
apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce

FOR THE BEEF:

3-4 lb
boneless chuck roast trimmed of most fat
18-20 bakery buns (or your favorite buns)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all sauce ingredients together. Place in a large slow cooker.
2
Add the roast. Cover and cook on high for 6-7 hours or until tender. I like to do this at least a day ahead of time. Let it cool.
Shred the beef and return it to the sauce.
3
Serve with a slotted spoon adding a heaping helping on a good bun! Yum! Crowd pleasing! :)

NOTE: This time I almost doubled the meat. About 7 pounds of chuck roast and there was no need to double the sauce. Turned out perfect! And made enough to feed the hungry crowd! This is fairly inexpensive if you have alot of people to feed.
