January Challenge Recipe - BBQ Beef Sandwich

This morning my daughter glanced at the calendar and was in complete shock that it was already January 20th - How did that happen???? Wasn't it just a few days ago that I was taking down our Christmas decorations?

The first week of my January challenge I mentioned either on this blog or on my Facebook the days and events are running together and I am completely going nuts that I was making a BBQ Beef Sandwich recipe... I later mentioned it was really yummy and even my picky kids ate leftovers... Many friends asked me for the recipe - so finally - I'm sharing... The picture is from the recipe book - I forgot to take pictures -but mine looked just about the same...

1 boneless beef chuck roast (about 3 pounds) - purchased buy 1 get 1 free -net price less than $4
1/4 cup ketchup
2 TBSP brown sugar
2 TBSP red wine vinegar
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp liquid smoke (this is what the book recipe called for - I put 1/8 tsp - not fond of smoke)
10 to 12 rolls or buns...

Place beef in Crock-pot - combine ingredients (except the rolls of course), in a medium bowl - pour over meat - Cover; cook on LOW 8-9 hours

Remove beef from Crock-pot and shred with 2 forks.

Combine beef with 1 cup sauce from Crock-pot - and voila!

Tonight I'm making a Cream Cheese Chicken Casserole - left overs for lunch and possibly dinner the next day?


  1. Love that you used chuck for this. One or the other of my local grocery stores has it on sale just about every week. I've been kind of craving a meal that reminds me of summer, including a mac or potato salad and this would be perfect for that without needing the grill or smoker.

    Thanks for the recipe and for the perfect fix for my mid-winter cravings!

  2. Following you too! That looks delish! (And yes, of all the foods I've given up, coke is what I miss the most!

  3. That recipe is almost like a sauce I make and put over cooked beef. It's yummy, and I bet cooking it in the sauce makes the beef even better. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. This recipe looks fantastic! I love making any kind of BBQ in the crock-pot. It's so easy and ready to go whenever you're ready.

  5. That looks delish! I have one I think you might like - my hubs co-worker from New Orleans gave him the recipe:

  6. Sounds like it would be a winner in our household.

  7. Oh this is great!! I'm working on a slow cooker sunday recipe repetiore and this would be perfect for it!

  8. Hi there, I saw that you were following me and I've moved blogs, so I wanted to let you know.
    I'd love it if you still followed! Take Care!

  9. Looks wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!

    Are you sharing the Cream Cheese Chicken? Hmmmm????
