Crock Pot Cooking: BBQ Beef Sandwich

There are so many great meals that can be made using a crock pot. One of our favorites is BBQ beef sandwiches. They’re easy to make and more than delicious. And while there are several recipes out there about BBQ beef, the following recipe is one that we have come to love. However, feel free to experiment and insert or remove ingredients to your liking. To save time, you can use a store-bought BBQ sauce. Not a beef fan? This recipe can be substituted with pork or chicken.

1 beef sirloin tip roast (about 3 lbs.), cut into large chunks

3 celery ribs, chopped

1 large onion, chopped

1 medium green pepper, chopped

1 cup ketchup

1 can (6 oz) tomato paste

½ cup packed brown sugar

¼ cup cider vinegar

3 tbsp. chili powder

2 tbsp. lemon juice

2 tbsp. molasses

2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. ground mustard

8 to 10 sandwich rolls, split

Place beef in a 5 qt. crock pot, adding the chopped celery, onion and green peppers. In a bowl, combine the ketchup, tomato paste, brown sugar, vinegar, chili powder, lemon juice, molasses, salt, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Pour over beef mixture. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender. Skim fat from cooking juices, if necessary. Shred beef. Toast rolls if desired. Use a slotted spoon to serve beef on rolls.
