Someone shared this with me once, and it is an awesome meal. I've made it for others, and they love it too! As a variation, I use low salt soy sauce and a can of water. You can also sub ground pepper for pepper corns. My sister uses low sodium beef broth and likes it even more!

1 beef chuck roast (about 3lbs)
2 cups of water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1t. dried rosemary
1t. dried thyme
1t. garlic powder
1 bay leaf
3-4 whole pepper corns

8 french rolls

place roast in crock pot. Add water, soy sauce & seasonings. cover and cook on high for at least 6 hours until beef is tender. remove beef from crock pot and shred with forks. keep warm. strain broth and skim off fat. use broth for dipping. fill rolls with beef and enjoy!

I use spaghetti sauce for moisture when I do chuck roast in a crockpot.
Add a few onions,carrots....Voile' ! The sauce has just the right amount of herbs and spices so there's no need to add your own. If you do add, taste it first before you do.

Default Crock Pot Ideas?

Does anyone cook meals in a crock pot? I bought a crock pot awhile back because I love the concept but I only use it to make beef stew and chilli. Im sure there are lots of other things that can be made with it. I would think soups would be a great idea? Does anyone have any crock pot ideas or recipies?

I love slow cookers! There are a lot of great meals that you can make in your slow cooker. Many recipes are on allrecipes.com, so a search for "slow cooker". I seem to make the same meals over and over though; but here are a few of them: spaghetti sauce (brown your beef with onion ahead of time and then dump all ingredients in), roast (any type roast add a cream of mushroom soup (reduced sodium or healthy choice), cream of celery soup, cut up onion, potatos, carrots, and cover with a packet of dry lipton onion soup mix (sometimes I will add some red wine and/or beef broth), swiss chicken, chicken and dumplings, mashed potatoes, turkey breast, whole small chicken (rubbed down), shredded barbecue (chuck roast, seasonings, bottle of barbecue sauce, (cook all day, pour off fat, pull the beef and add another small bottle of barbecue sauce), and any kind of soup or stew imaginable is also doable; my favorites are taco/chicken tortilla and vegetable.

One other tip I would like to pass along is that I really enjoy using the Slow Cooker plastic liners that are out now. They save the day on clean up. Enjoy your new slow cooker and Happy Cooking!

They do a great job on pulled pork too. I just stick a pork butt in mine and let it cook all day with some spices. Then I take it out and shred it and add the sauce.
