Slow Cooker Shredded Beef

We get a lot of roasts when we buy our meat (we buy it a whole side at a time). Since it is really just Trevor and I who eat roast beef we always end up with too many leftovers. It’s nice to mix it up so yesterday I decided to try something different with one of our roasts.  I made the same shredded beef on a bun that I made for William’s Birthday. It’s very simple, and very delicious.

Shredded Beef on a bun, make it in the slow cooker. Tastes amazing!

Slow Cooker Shredded Beef


  • Beef Roast

  1. Place roast into slow cooker
  2. Top with chopped onions
  3. Pour beef broth over gently (try not to wash all the onions off)
  4. Cook on low for 7-10 hours, until it is basically falling apart
  5. Rip roast apart with 2 forks until completely shredded
  6. You can then place in fridge for the next day or continue with instructions for same day
  7. Place shredded beef back into slow cooker
  8. Cover beef with BBQ sauce (I use the complete bottle), give it a good stir to cover completely

Crock-Pot Beef Roast

Here is a very simple way to cook a beef roast in the slow cooker. It’s the way I usually cook it as I find the slow cooker to be the easiest way of cooking. I have never burnt a roast in the slow cooker. It also spreads out the time I spend in the kitchen preparing dinner.

You can sub the tomatoes if you wish. I have made this successfully with salsa in place of tomatoes when I didn’t have any in the house.
