Directions
1.
In a small bowl, stir together garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and celery salt. Trim fat from meat. Sprinkle pepper mixture evenly over meat; rub in with your fingers. If necessary, cut meat to fit into a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours. Remove meat and onions from cooker to a cutting board; discard cooking liquid. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Tote meat in slow cooker. Tote broccoli and mayonnaise dressing in an insulated container with ice packs.
4.
To serve, in a small bowl, combine shredded broccoli and 1/4 cup of the mayonnaise dressing. Spread bottoms of the buns with the remaining mayonnaise dressing. Place meat mixture on bottoms of buns. Top with shredded broccoli mixture; replace tops of buns. Makes 16 sandwiches.
