Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Sliders

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 6 hours
Total Time 6 hours 10 minutes


  • 3-4 pound chuck roast fat trimmed, cut into large chunks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 20 cracks fresh black pepper
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • slider buns


  • Season beef on all sides with salt and pepper. Add olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat and sear beef on all sides until deep golden brown.
  • Take beef out and place in a slow cooker. Deglaze pan on the stove with the beef stock, scraping the bottom of the pan to remove all the yummy bits. Pour everything over the beef in the slow cooker.
  • Cook on high for 2-4 hours or low 4-6 hours or until beef is so tender it shreds. Drain liquid and set aside.
  • Take out beef onto a plate. Shred beef, removing any excess fat. Place beef back into the slow cooker on the warm setting. Add about 1/2 cup of the stock back to the cooker. Add the bbq sauce and stir to combine.
  • Serve on slider buns with more bbq sauce if desired.
