Pulled Beef Sandwiches

Number of hours cooking - 4-6 hours. Number of ingredients needed - 6 common ingredients. Number of pots/pans to cook in and clean - 1 slow cooker. Having an amazingly delicious dish on any day with little effort ... priceless!

Simply take a beef chuck roast, some garlic, dried rosemary, bay leaves, soy sauce and water and place it in a crockpot. Let it cook on medium for 4-6 hours or even longer. In fact, the longer, the better! The result is a super flavorful, extremely moist and juicy beef roast that falls apart. I shredded the beef (which was easy as it was falling apart) and placed it in between a toasted hamburger bun, then topped it with slices of provolone cheese. The au jus that develops is just as amazing and makes for a great thing to dip your sandwich into. It was one of the best sandwiches I've had in awhile and I'll definitely plan on making this again soon. This can also be made as a freezer meal!
Place roast in slow cooker. Season with garlic, rosemary, and bay leaves. Pour in soy sauce and water. Cook on medium setting for 4 to 6 hours.  
* 4 pounds beef chuck roast
* 1 tablespoon minced garlic
* 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
* 3 bay leaves
* 1 cup soy sauce
* 6 cups water

To serve, place in hamburger buns or split french bread and top with your preferred cheese if desired. Feel free to dip your sandwich in the au jus left in the slow cooker too!

* To make ahead/freezer meal
- Place all the ingredients except the water into a gallon sized freezer storage bag; seal and freeze. When ready to prepare, defrost completely. Place contents into your slow cooker and add 6 cups of water. Cook on medium setting for 4 to 6 hours.
