BBQ Beef Sandwiches

BBQ Beef Sandwiches
12 servings

1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried chopped onion
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
3 pound boneless roast*
soft sandwich buns

Combine first ten ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for thirty minutes. Brown roast on all sides and place in crock pot. Pour half of the sauce over roast; cook on low for 8 to 9 hours. Remove roast and shred. Remove cooking liquid from crock pot, leaving about 1/4 cup liquid in crock pot. Skim fat from remaining liquid, replace shredded meat and stir in reserved sauce. Using a slotted spoon, serve up on buns and enjoy!

*I usually use a chuck roast, but the last several times I've cooked a roast, I have purchased an "eye of round" roast. They are very lean and priced the same per pound as the chuck at my grocery.
