Pulled Beef made in the slow cooker
We made pulled beef in the crock pot for dinner. I love my crock pot. We threw in a beef roast and all the ingredients to make a barbecue sauce, but you could just add a jar of your favorite sauce and that work just as great. We ran a bunch of errands and when we finally got back the house was filled with the great scent of barbecue. Yummy. We bought some big rolls from the bakery as Tony said no wimpy rolls would do for such a great sandwich. He was right !! I served with chips but potato salad, coleslaw or tator tots would be perfect side dishes.
2 1/2 to 3 lbs lean chuck roast or bottom round
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup wine vinegar
2 tablespoons spicy mustard or Dijon
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Place beef roast in crock pot. Combine remaining ingredients; pour over roast. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours. Remove roast, shred meat. Place shredded meat back in crock pot; stir to coat well. Spoon barbecued beef onto toasted sandwich buns and serve with extra sauce, if desired.
Serves 6 to 8.
