Crock Pot Savory Beef Sandwiches

Savory Beef Sandwiches
8 servings

1 boneless chuck roast (3 to 4 pounds)
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 sandwich rolls

Trim fat from roast. Combine seasonings; rub over roast. Place in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender. Shred with a fork. Serve on rolls.

I got home a little bit before everyone else did tonight. I shredded the beef, filled the sandwich rolls, wrapped the sandwiches in foil, and put them in a 250° oven to stay warm until the rest of the family arrived. They hit the spot! :-)

for life of me, I can't cook a roast in the slow cooker...Did you add water to yours or just the roast? I have always just added a little water but it is drier than dirt:) Someone told me to cover it with water???

Hi Teresa,
No water is added to this recipe - the moisture comes from the roast. After the roast was done, there was about 1/2 an inch of liquid in my crock pot. You definately have to cook a roast on low if you don't add water, high would be too fast. When I make a pot roast in the slow cooker, with vegetables, I do add about a fourth of a cup of water, but that is mainly just to get the drippings out of the pan I brown the roast in before cooking. I don't think I would cover it in water. I really think it is the slow, low temp that make it work. Good luck! :-)

I'm working on my weekly menu and stopping by to see what's cookin' at your house! These will be perfect for Monday night since we have Faith Keepers and Boy Scouts!
