Ingredients

  • 3 lb chuck roast
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp each of Ranch seasoning and Montreal Steak seasoning

Make Crockpot Shredded Beef and Cheddar Sandwiches

To start making this recipe, season a chuck roast on all sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large skillet and heat to medium high heat. Sear the roast on all sides until browned.

Seasoned Roast

Once the roast is browned on all sides, add the roast to a large crockpot with 2 cups of beef broth.

Next, season with 1 tbsp each of ranch seasoning, steak seasoning, and minced garlic. I used Montreal Steak Seasoning, but any steak seasoning will work.

Last, add some Arby’s sauce on top. I didn’t use exact measurements for the sauce, just add enough to cover the roast. Top with the sliced onions.

Roast

Cover with the lid and cook on low for 8 hours.

Once the roast is cooked and tender, remove the roast from the crockpot, shred the meat with two forks, and discard any extra fat.

Add a little bit more Arby’s sauce to the meat and stir well.

Shredded Beef

To build the sandwiches, lay out the buns on a sheet pan.

Add a scoop of the meat to the bottom bun, add some of the sliced onions from the crockpot, and top with Arby’s sauce and cheddar cheese.

Place the sandwiches in the oven under broil to melt the cheese and toast the buns. Just keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!

Serve Shredded Beef and Cheddar Sandwiches

I served these with a Caesar Salad, but they would be awesome with some curly fries!

Tips and Frequently Asked Questions

  • I used about 3 pounds of Chuck Roast for this recipe.
  • I used cheddar cheese slices, but the canned nacho cheese would also be good on these.
  • I really prefer to sear the roast before adding it to the crockpot. Searing helps lock in the juices and helps make the meat tender. If you have the time, don’t skip this step.
  • I seasoned the roast with Montreal Steak seasoning, but you can use any steak seasoning you have.
