Barbecued Beef Sandwiches

As always, we have busy plans for this weekend that require a lot of time out of the house, lucky for me, tomorrow's forecast calls for a sunshiny 54 degrees. After chilly days in the 20s, I am more than ready to see beautiful pre-spring weather. Today, I made a quick stop by the market today to pick up a few things for the weekend. Spring warmth reminds me of barbecue, so I decided tomorrow we'd have some Barbecued Beef Sandwiches straight from the crock.

The meat department had a few great sales. I scored a Boneless Shoulder roast for a mere $4!! That should feed us all nicely. I decided we'd have a simple potato salad, pickles, and maybe some baked beans, if I'm feeling alive after our long day of cheerleading and Pom pom practice!!

Here's what you need to make these delicious barbecue beef sandwiches!!

3 pounds boneless beef shoulder roast
2 cups ketchup
1 medium onion chopped
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup dark molasses
2 TB Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tbl minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
Sesame Seed Buns or burger buns

Place roast in the crock.

In a large bowl, mix together all the sauce ingredients, (other than the buns). Pour sauce mixture over the roast, cook on low 8 to 10 hours.

Remove roast from the sauce liquid, cool slightly. Trim and discard excess fat. Then shred the meat with 2 forks.

Skim and discard fat from sauce liquid. Return meat to slow cooker, stir evenly to coat meat with sauce. Cover and cook on LOW for 20 minutes.

Spoon meat into sesame or burger buns and top with sauce if desired. Enjoy!!
