BBQ Beef

This is a great meal for company because it is cooked in the crockpot. I usually make the sauce the night before and then stick everything in of a morning. It would be a wonderful meal to have after a hard day of Christmas shopping since it will already be done. I've also taken this to a Super Bowl party and the guys loved it.

BBQ Beef

1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp prepared Dijon-style mustard (I've used regular yellow mustard)
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 (approx. 4 lb) boneless chuck roast (works great with a pork roast too)

In a large bowl, combine ketchup, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and liquid smoke. Stir in salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place chuck roast in a slow cooker, pour ketchup mixture over roast. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Remove roast from slow cooker, shred with fork and return to slow cooker. Stir meat to evenly coat with sauce and continue cooking approx. one hour (I usually only cook until my side dishes are done).
