I collect beef recipes since I buy 1/2 a cow locally each year.  This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy a great roast using the slow cooker.

4 pounds beef roast
2 envelopes (1 ounce each) dried onion soup mix
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 cans (10 1/2 ounces each) beef broth
Crusty Rolls
Swiss or Pepper Jack Cheese


1. Trim excess fat from beef and discard. Place beef in slow cooker.
2. Combine soup mix, sugar, oregano, garlic, broth in large mixing bowl. Pour mixture over beef. Cover; cook on HIGH 6 to 8 hours or until beef is fork-tender.
3. Remove beef from slow cooker. Shred beef with two forks. Return beef to cooking liquid; mix well. Serve on crusty rolls with a piece of cheese melted on top and extra au jus on the side.
