  • 2 ½-3 lb beef chuck roast
  • ½ C sliced pepperoncinis
  • 2 C sliced onions
  • 12 oz can cola not diet
  • 1 C ketchup
  • ¼ C Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon each chili powder and ground mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ C brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Trim roast of any excess fat and place in a slow-cooker and top with pepperoncinis and onion.
  • In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Measure 1½ C of the sauce and set aside. Pour remaining sauce over the meat, cover and let cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4. Meat is done when tender and shreds easily.
  • Transfer reserved sauce into a sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Reduce for 15- 20 minutes over medium heat until it has thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat.
  • When meat is done, remove from slow-cooker and shred into bite-sized pieces. Discard the cooking liquid and return meat to the slow-cooker.
  • Stir thickened BBQ sauce into the shredded meat and heat until hot throughout. Serve on soft rolls topped with onion rings and pepperoncinis if desired.
