Perfect for a summer cookout or potluck, this shredded beef barbecue recipe is made easily in the crockpot! With a quick and easy homemade barbecue sauce that’s sweet and tangy, this beef bbq is truly the best!
We FINALLY had a weekend here in Ohio where it was semi-sunny and in the 60’s! Our “Spring” has been more like an extended winter, so it was amazing to actually have some Spring-like weather. Aside from just instantly lifting my mood, the warmer weather gave me a craving… for cookout food!
I’ve talked here on the blog before about my serious love of cookout or potluck food. It’s so amazing to me… like my warm weather comfort food! From jalapeño popper macaroni salad, broccoli salad, tequila lime coleslaw and fresh strawberry pie… I can never get enough. Usually we go for a more traditional pulled pork, but an absolute favorite in our family is our shredded beef barbecue!
This recipe is a mixture of one we got from my Aunt Amy, with some of my own flair, and a great tip from Karly who blogs over at Buns in My Oven. Want to know what the tip is? Mustard. Plain yellow mustard. The acidity adds amazing flavor and really tenderizes the beef as it cooks in the crockpot. Even if you’re skeptical… try it once!
2 – 2 1/2 lb. beef chuck roast
1/4 C. BBQ sauce
1/4 C. ketchup
2 T. light brown sugar
1/4 C. apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. chili powder
Place the roast in the crock pot, slice in half if using a 4 qt. crock pot. Whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over the roast. Cook on low for 6 hours. Remove the roast and shred with two forks (it just falls apart), place in a serving dish and ladle some of the juice over the top before serving.
