Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Roast
In a recent box, we received a 2.5-pound beef bottom roast, and the ideas started whirling. The fun part of this subscription box is that you never know exactly what cuts they’ll be sending. It’s kind of like a mystery road trip - someone else sets up your itinerary and you just sit back for the ride!
The recipe and timing is so simple. Turn your slow cooker on high and put just enough BBQ sauce in to cover the bottom of the cooker. Place the meat in fat side up. Add the remaining BBQ sauce to cover it. Then add 1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce and 1/8 cup honey on top. Cover and let it cook on high for 1 hour. Turn it down to low for an additional 6-7 hours or until the meat falls apart when you touch it.
At this point, I usually shred the meat with two forks and put it back in the juices for a few minutes. This lets it soak up all that goodness and flavor for just a little while longer.
Serve it up with a couple of healthy sides and you’ve got a complete meal. Pictured here are veggie tots (sweet potato and cauliflower) and our favorite green seedless grapes. Healthy and yummy all in one meal - it doesn’t get any better than that!
