Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Sliders, five-ingredient BBQ Beef (S&P included!!) slow cooked for hours and topped with your favorite BBQ sauce!
Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Sliders are a staple sandwich you and your family will love year round!
Although, there is just something super comforting about these sandwiches during the fall and winter months. Plus, they are perfect football food!
Or any sport food… or weeknight meal… who am I kidding?!
Jeremy and I LOVE bar-be-que. We go searching on the weekends looking for new spots.
We are obsessed. We have accepted this. Thank you for understanding.
I love that now I can make some of our favorite sandwiches right at home any day of the week.
These bbq sandwiches are made from a super inexpensive cut of beef – chuck roast. This also makes a ton of beef, so depending on the size of your family, you will most likely get multiple dinners out of one chuck roast.
I served up some fried red potato wedges with these, piled the beef high on slider buns with more bbq sauce and called it a day.
There is basically no effort in this recipe, it is delicious, and it makes a LOT. Win-win-win.
From this batch of bbq beef I also made bbq nachos (recipe to come soon!)…. yeah, I went there.
