Easy Shredded BBQ Beef

I finally found a BBQ beef recipe with a sauce that we love! This is a great meal for a crowd and it freezes well too.

1 (3 pound) boneless beef chuck roast
1 can (14.5 ounce) beef broth or Better Than Bouillon beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Place the roast in a Dutch oven; add broth, onion and celery. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until meat is tender. Remove roast and cool slightly; shred the meat with forks. Strain the vegetables and set aside. skim the fat from cooking liquid and reserve 1-1/2 cups. Return the meat and vegetables and reserved cooking liquid to the pan. You can also put all this into a large crockpot, which is what I did. Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, salt, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, bay leaf and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes (or heat in crockpot on high to get it to a boil then turn to low and simmer to keep warm).
