My boyfriend LOVES this recipe. If the sauce is too greasy, I put the sauce in a container in the freezer while I'm shredding the beef. The grease hardens on top, and you can skim it off. The...

Chuck roasts are well known to have a fair bit of fat. If you cook the roast without all of the sauce you can remove the fat & oil, shred the meat and THEN add the sauce. It tastes just as goo...

A few tips for this great recipe. I've been making it for a few years. I actually sear my roast along with green peppers and onions. I always prepare this a day ahead to let it refrigerate so...

I have made this dish using a beef chuck roast twice and a pork loin roast 3 times. I personally like the pork better, but my family likes them both. I serve on buns or over rice w/ a salad. ...

My family loved this dish! Even my daughter who never tries anything liked it. Some other reviewers mentioned that the sauce had too much fat in it after cooking so long so I just cut my roast i...

This recipe was great. I used some BBQ sauce, some ketchup and no liquid smoke and it was fine. If there's one piece of previous advice I would definitely say to take is to cut the meat into c...
