BBQ Beef Sandwiches

My friend Beth and I have been best friends since we were 13. Every year on her birthday her mother would fix this recipe for Beth, and I have continued the tradition since her mother's death. Even if I am far from her (she lives in California) I still fix it and serve it in her honor. It's so easy, and the meat just shreds. Pile it onto those yummy french sandwich rolls and enjoy!

BBQ Beef Sandwiches

4-5 lb pot, chuck or rump roast
3 medium onions, sliced
¼ cup water
8 oz tomato sauce
¼ cup lemon juice
½ teaspoon dry mustard
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon chili powder
¼ cup vinegar
¼ cup ketchup
2 pressed garlic cloves
¾ teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoon brown sugar
Sourdough French rolls (sliced sandwich size)

Put meat in crock pot or heavy kettle. Top with onions. Combine remaining ingredients into a smooth sauce and pour over beef. Simmer covered for approximately 8 hours. (If it dries out add water.)

Serve on heated and buttered rolls.
