(or your favorite rolls/buns)
Bring the beef chuck roast out of the refrigerator and let come to room temperature for about 1/2 hour. Trim of excess fat.
Place the roast in a large slow cooker. Pour in the beef broth and soy sauce; stir in the minced onions, rosemary, garlic powder, and thyme. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours, or on low for about 7 hours, until the beef will shred easily.
Remove the beef to a cutting board (don't drain the broth) and shred, removing any additional excess fat. Place the shredded beef back in the slow cooker and cook, covered, for one more hour.
Drain the au jus into a heat proof measuring cup or fat strainer. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to let the fat rise to the top. Remove the fat with the back of a spoon.
To make the sandwiches: Broil sliced rolls for 1 minute to lightly toast. Place a scoop of beef on half of each roll and top with shredded cheese. Top the other half of the roll with additional cheese, and broil for 1-2 minutes more, or until the cheese is melted, watching carefully. Serve with the au jus for dipping.
