Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

One thing that I love most about slow cookers is that you can use frozen meats...mainly, because I am HORRIBLE at remembering to put something out for dinner the night before. So most of the time, I'm walking out my door to go to work when I remember I need to feed my family tonight...so to the freezer I go...I find something frozen, grab the other ingredients, dump everything into my crock pot and out the door I go...

This is one of the easiest recipes...

Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

2 1/2 - 3 pound beef chuck roast (I also like to use a Pork Butt Roast)

1 small bottle (2 cups) barbecue sauce (of your choice)

1 cup chopped onion (*)

  • Place roast in crockpot
  • Pour barbecue sauce over roast
  • Sprinkle chopped onion over sauce
  • Cover and cook on LOW all day
  • Using 2 forks, just before serving, shred meat
  • Serve shredded beef on hamburger buns
  • Spoon additional sauce over sandwiches
If you are like me, you hate to cut up onions, so my wonderful MIL told me about this neat trick...use dried chopped onions...I only use about a 1/4 cup of dried onions. They will 'plump' up as they cook and no body needs to know you didn't chop them yourself.

Enjoy and Happy Slow Cooking! Hugs...
