slow cooker barbeque beef sandwiches

On most chilly fall mornings I wake up thinking about what I can put in the slow cooker for the day...  something about the smells filling up the house all day just makes the cold seem cozier!

This time, for inspiration, I went out to the freezer in the garage to see what we had in there.  I found a couple of packages of rib steaks and decided to throw them in the slow cooker with a homemade barbeque sauce for shredded beef sandwiches.

It smelled great all day, and tasted even better!

Slow Cooker Barbeque Beef Sandwiches Recipe

1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup vinegar (cider, white wine or red wine vinegar)
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
6 oz tomato paste
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4-1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder (to taste)
3 lbs or so beef roast (pork would work great too!)

Mix together all of the ingredients, except for the meat, in the slow cooker, stirring well to combine.  

Cut the meat into large chunks and place into the slow cooker, turning the pieces to make sure everything is coated with the sauce.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until the meat is tender and falling apart.  Shred the meat and return to the sauce to keep warm.

To serve, toast your favorite buns until golden brown and pile with meat!  Also great with a few slices of cheese thrown onto the bread before you toast it...  yumm!
