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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

This was good but needed more zip (go heavier on the spices). Read More

I make this in my slow cooker on low for 6 hours turning the roast over every 2 hours. The roast was pretty easy to shred. After I shredded it I poured the liquid/sauce on the meat the served on buns. Delicious flavor! Trust me it's not too much of a chili flavor. Read More
