A Family Fave. Slow Cooker BBQ Beef.

Let's be honest for a a second shall we (as if I am not honest in all of my other posts-ha!). As a mom of two kids two and under, I rarely have time to brush my hair and teeth in the morning, much less cook on a daily basis. So I am constantly on the lookout for easy meals, that EVERYONE in my family enjoys. This can be a difficult task, considering I have a two year old, and they can be particular about EVERYTHING. This is one of our fave meals, and SO easy. You'll need the following:
  • 1 (3 lb) boneless chuck roast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 18 oz bbq sauce
  • salt and pepper

Start out with your roast.
Since we slaughter a cow every year, I never know exactly how much my roasts weigh. It's never caused problems before, so take the 3lb thing loosely. Place the roast in the crockpot first.

Line up all of your ingredients really cute. Like so:
Disregard that my pepper is in a "spanish paprika" bottle. The pepper bottle was busted, so Drew improvised. It works, and that's all that matters, right?

You'll want to sprinkle the roast with the garlic powder, onion powder & salt and pepper (I use Lawry's season salt instead of plain table salt).

It'll look like this when you're finished.

Next, cover your roast completely with the bbq sauce. Any bbq sauce will work. We happen to have a TON of this type of sauce on hand, so that's what I used.

Cover her up. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove meat when done, shred, and return to crockpot, cooking for approximately 1 more hour.

AND.... you're going to kill me. I don't have any more pictures. I know. It's a P-Dub*

travesty. Trust me when I tell you, it looks, smells and tastes SCRUMPTIOUS! We serve this on 100% whole wheat burger buns. You can use any old bun though. Or hoagie. I like cheese on mine, but that's not necessary either. This serves about 4-5, depending on your roast size.
