Slow Cooker BBQ Beef on a Bun

Slow Cooker Shredded BBQ Beef on a Bun

I have had this recipe, on page one of my recipe book that I keep in my kitchen drawer, for 7 years now!  My mom found it in a newspaper, cut it out, and made it for a big family event and it’s been a keeper ever since!  The best part about this recipe, aside from how amazing it tastes, is that the ingredients are all items you normally have in your pantry anyway!

Slow cooker BBQ beef - so easy to make using items you already have on hand. Serve with kaiser buns, coleslaw, horseradish and other favorite BBQ Beef on a Bun toppings!


Onto the taste!  I used to love going out for beef on a bun nights at the local bar in my hometown.  This is classic beef on a bun goodness!  Use your favorite BBQ and serve on fresh kaiser buns.  Top with sliced red onion, coleslaw, mustard, horseradish – it’s up to you!  The recipe is delicious and you can tweek it to make it your own with toppings.  Leftovers are amazing as well and can be frozen for another day (that is, if you even have leftovers!)
