  • Place the chuck roast in your slow cooker.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the ketchup, onion, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, paprika, pepper and celery seeds.
  • Pour sauce over meat. Cover and cook on low or until beef shred easily, about 9 hours.
  • Carefully transfer the meat to a cutting board and shred with a fork or chop with a knife. Note: I place my cutting board inside a rimmed baking sheet so that the juices don't run all over my counter top.
  • Transfer the juices from the slow cooker to a sauce pan. Bring to a slow simmer over medium heat.
  • Whisk together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl or glass. Whisk into the sauce and stir until thickened.
  • Return the meat to the slow cooker. Add the sauce.
  • Serve over buns or bread.
