- Preparation Time: 10 minutes
- 4 lb. boneless chuck roast
- ½ c. soy sauce
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 tsp. dried rosemary
- 1 beef bouillon cube
- 3-4 peppercorns
- 1 tsp. thyme
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- Cut all visible fat from roast and place roast into crockpot.
- Combine all remaining ingredients and pour over roast.
- Add water to just about cover.
- Cook on low for 7 hours or until roast is tender (depends on size).
- Remove roast from crockpot and shred with two forks.
- Return shredded beef to crock pot to hold and heat.

NotesMy friend Janet introduced me to this dish when she had a crowd of families over to her house. I was so surprised that even the children loved these sandwiches! Then, when she gave me the recipe, I was even more surprised at its simplicity yet complex and savory flavors! Just what every busy mother needs: a great tasting recipe that is a snap to make, is inexpensive, and will feed a crowd and also freezes great to stretch out for future fast and delicious family meals!
