The Slow Cooked BBQ Pulled Beef is really easy to make and when you walk into the kitchen while it is cooking, the smell is amazing! As it is slow cooked it is ideal for using cheaper cuts of meats like brisket. You can serve it with a side of potato wedges and coleslaw or even with tacos topped with homemade salsa and guacamole.
Beef ( I used 650g Brisket)
2 Sliced Red Onions
200mls Barbeque Sauce (I used Heinz Barbeque Sticky Sauce)
3 Tbsp Soft Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp American Mustard
1Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
2 Garlic Cloves Minced
Salt & Pepper
Slice your red onions and put that in your slow cooker along with the beef (remember to remove any butcher’s twine as you won’t want that in your meal!)
In a jug add all of the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Pour the sauce over the beef, place the lid on to the slow cooker and turn to cook on low. Do not remove the lid, not even to smell how lovely it is, as this interferes with the slow cooking process.
Cook for 7-8 hours.
When ready remove the lid and take out the beef and place it on a plate. Using two forks shred the meat and then return it to the slow cooker so you can coat the meat in the sauce so it is completely coated.
I served mine with cheesy mash, Boston baked beans and broccoli.
You could also serve it in a bun with French fries and homemade coleslaw (also very recommended).
