1 (4 pound)
beef chuck roast
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder, or to taste
This is sooo good!!! My family loves anything 'chili' so it was a huge hit!! We took it with us on a family 'potluck' and everyone who managed to get a sandwich raved about it! I did add extra garlic and some onion salt as well just to kick it up a bit. I also used a canned medium chili sauce and cooked on low heat for 5 hours, it was super juicy!
I would have given this four stars, but my wife thought it was a three at best, so I split the difference. She thought it was too sweet, even though I cut the sugar in half. Might try it again and leave the sugar out entirely.
Wow- this one is a keeper!!! I'm still a novice, so I'm very selective about the recipes that I keep in my "black box". This one got four out of four family votes for the box- even my 6 and 4 yr olds loved it! I followed the recipe exactly except I used a 2.5 lb chuck roast instead of a 4 lb, and I did NOT adjust the other ingredients to match. It turned out perfect! Thanks for sharing!
I would have given this a four, but the other three people in the house said a soild 5. It was really good exactly as written. We did not make put it on bread. I used a crock pot on low for about 4 hours and then high for about 1 1/2 hours. Thanks.
I rarely eat red meat but I did try some of this and it was very tasty and spicy. I cooked this in the crockpot and it was very tender and shredded easily. I served this on toasted hamburger buns and my guys really enjoyed this meal.
This turned out really good. Am going to try it in my crockpot next. Thanks for the post.
I think the "chili Sauce" in this recipe refers to a sauce that comes in a bottle (Heinz) and not the type of chili sauce that one would use for hot dogs. That would make a big difference in the outcome of this recipe. The bottled sauce is more like ketchup or seafood sauce than chili.
I have been making beef barbecues for years and usually put the roast in the oven and roast until really done. You could do it on the stove top, but one work of advice. It is MUCH EASIER TO SHRED THE BEEF WHILE IS STILL HOT.
