Slow Cooker Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

I told you I would have another slow cooker meal soon!  I did not plan this very well at all, it just worked out that both recipes posted back to back…and they both happened to be beef. 😉  I guarantee that they do not taste anything alike, LOL.  Since I served beef for last year’s Cooking with Astrology “Virgo”, I decided to keep the same protein this year as well.  I might change things up next year, but you just never know…..

You also have choices with this meal {you know me and choices}.  I served my Slow Cooker Barbecue Beef Sandwiches with Bacon Potato Salad…..

but they would also be delicious with Sweet Potato Chips…..

I think this Slow Cooker Barbecue Beef was even easier to make than the Slow Cooker Pot Roast!

Start by mixing the Spice Rub together…..

Then sprinkle the rub on all sides of the beef roast…..

*Warning* this spice rub has a kick to it!  It’s not overly spicy, but small children might not be thrilled with it.  Use less chili powder for less heat, or use less rub. 🙂

Place the roast in the slow cooker…..

Put on the lid and cook on HIGH for 6 hours, or LOW for 8 hours…..

Come back and find this super delicious beef just waiting to be shredded…..

No, I did not add any liquid before I cooked the roast!  Remove the roast to a large plate or baking sheet and shred with two forks…..

Discard the liquid and return the shredded beef to the slow cooker…..

Add 1 cup of Tangy & Sassy Barbecue Sauce {or sauce of your choice} and cook for an additional 30 to 60 minutes…..

Slice your Homemade Hamburger Buns in half, and toast in a cast iron skillet.  Place a scoop of barbecue beef on the bun…..

and serve with additional barbecue sauce on the side.  I wrapped my sandwiches in foil…..

for easy transport.  It also helped keep all of the barbecue sauce from running down my arms! 😉  Don’t forget to bring along some Wet Nap hand wipes in your basket…..

You also need a blanket to sit on, a couple of pillows to lean against, and some large plates of a tray to keep your food from falling over! 🙂  No one wants their Blackberry Passion Tea Lemonade to spill and ruin their new blanket…or soak their imaginary date!

    I never use my slow cooker because I don’t have a timer and even without one everything always seems to be overcooked. Any ideas? Would like to try this recipe.
