Homemade Slow Cooker Barbecue Beef Sandwiches are mouthwatering delicious!
When it gets close to warmer weather around here and I start thinking of recipes to make for summer dinners and lunches. I rarely turn on my oven from June to August here in Oregon. Our house is older, we have air conditioning in only 2 rooms, so turning on the oven is a death wish. These Slow Cooker Barbecue Beef Sandwiches are great with an easy side dish such as watermelon or chips.
Why cook this meal in the slow cooker and not just in the skillet? The sauce will slow cook and make a more melded flavored sauce and the onions will tenderize. It’s also my new favorite meal for Monday nights after girl scouts, which doesn’t get out until 7pm!
I didn’t take many photos of this meal, but I did make a video! See the video below. You can follow me on YouTube, here.
What type of slow cooker dishes do you make when the weather gets warmer? My go recipes are anything that can be served on a bun or tortilla. Enjoy this recipe and have a great week!
- 2 lbs. ground beef (I used 7% fat), browned (save a bit of the drippings! see below)
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. pepper
- ½ tsp. garlic powder
- 2 tsp. white vinegar
- 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 2 Tbsp. mustard
- 1 (12-oz.) jar Chili Sauce
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 small white onion, diced
- 4-quart or larger
- Brown the ground beef and keep a touch of the drippings, add to the slow cooker.
- Add remaining ingredients and stir.
- Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.
- Serve on toasted buns and enjoy!
I used my 6-quart 5-in-one Crock-Pot® Multicooker for this recipe. This multi-cooker great for browning the beef right in the same pot as you do the slow cooking. Though for this recipe you can use a regular crock pot and cook the meat in a skillet on the stove-top. Any slow cooker 4-quart or larger will work for this recipe.
