Easy Peasy Heffys Crock Pot Roast

Often I cannot wait till summer to enjoy the best BBQ and really don’t want to go outside and fire up the smoker either. Seems that the winter gets us all down a bit, but Heffys usually gives me the boost to go on another couple of days while dreaming about warmer temps.
This recipe is easy to do during the day while you are away at work; it is simple and quick to prepare.
1 – 3 to 5 LB beef shoulder or arm roast. (Pick one with nice marbling)
¾ to 1 cup Worcestershire sauce
¾ cup prepared coffee
1 – 8 oz can of tomato sauce
Seasoned salt to taste
Place your roast in a crock pot and add the tomato sauce to coat the top, the seasoned salt and the Worcestershire sauce. You may think that coffee sounds like a strange ingredient; but believe me; the taste is not evident in the end product. The coffee will help tenderize the meat as it cooks in the juice; so if you can’t find the tenderest cut this really helps out.
It usually takes about 6 to 8 hours to cook this on medium or low temperature in your crock pot; if you are doing this on a day you are home; 4 hours on high will do the trick.
When the meat is cooked fully; it should come apart with just a fork. Pull the beef out of the crock and let it rest for 15 to 20 min before carving; this will allow it to cool enough that your hands are not burnt; I know this step only too well. Again, this is intended to be a pulled beef for sandwiches or on its own; just pull it apart with your fingers and a fork while eliminating the fat.
Once it is pulled; cover with some Heffys to taste and serve on a bun. Great side dishes include American potatoes, baked beans, and some coleslaw.
This should help beat some of the winter blues and get you ready for the BBQ season.
