Shredded Beef Sandwiches


This flavorful shredded beef makes delicious sandwiches, perfect for a game day afternoon.


  • 1 (2 1/2 to 3 1/2 lbs.) lean chuck roast
  • 1 large onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 2 or 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (10 1/2 oz.) condensed tomato soup
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground hot pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • salt to taste


Trim fat from beef and cut into 4 or 5 large chunks to fit in slow cooker. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over beef. Cover and cook on LOW for 9 to 11 hours, until very tender. Pour juice into a small saucepan and simmer on the stovetop for 15 to 20 minutes to reduce and thicken. In the meantime shred beef with 2 forks or potato masher. Return thickened sauce to the beef in the slow cooker. Keep warm and serve with split sandwich buns and coleslaw.
Makes 6 to 8 sandwiches.
