Crock Pot Roasted Garlic Beef Sandwiches
- 4 lb chuck roast
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp hickory flavored liquid smoke
- 8 oz of your favorite beer
- 2 whole heads of roasted garlic
- Your favorite cheese, sliced (We like provolone!)
Sprinkle the pot roast evenly with the salt, pepper, and onion powder and place the meat in the crock pot. Cover the top with the brown sugar, then add the beer and liquid smoke to the crock pot and cover it. Cook on low for 8 hours. At some point during the 8 hours (I did it the night before) roast the garlic. Squeeze out the cloves of garlic and mash them on a cutting board with a fork. Remove the lid of the crockpot and using kitchen tongs or forks, shred and pull apart the beef. At this time, remove any large chunks of fat or gristle too.
Add the roasted garlic to the crock pot juices and stir to combine. Add the shredded beef back into the crock pot and stir well to evenly distribute the garlic and make sure it is incorporated into the beef. Cover the beef and cook it on low for another 30 minutes.
Toast your buns and melt your cheese if desired. Serve with extra juice from the crock pot for dipping. Enjoy!
