BBQ Beef in Crock Pot

School is out here in the NW and so it is officially summer!   Summer time brings it’s own set of challenges when it comes to dinner time.  I like to play as much as the kids do in the summer so the goal is to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible. When you get rid of the routine of school somehow that routine of dinner gets harder and harder.

That is when the crock pot comes in handy.  Throw dinner in first thing in the morning – head out to play and dinner’s ready when you get home.  I also love the fact that on those hot days  of summer the crock pot doesn’t seem to heat up the kitchen as much as the oven does.

Today’s recipe for Crock Pot BBQ Beef is an easy one and a delicious one.   Throw it all in the crock pot and let it cook away.  Heat up the leftover sauce at the end for some extra goodness and you are good to go.

If you are feeling extra energetic you might want to even try making your own homemade buns.  It would be a fun hands on activity for the kids too!

They are so easy and so much yummier than the store bought ones.  The recipe for homemade hamburger buns  can be found here.

    What i don’t understood is in reality how you are not actually a lot more neatly-appreciated than you may be now.
    You are so intelligent. You understand thus considerably on the subject of
    this topic, made me in my view believe it from numerous various
    angles. Its like men and women are not fascinated unless it’s one
    thing to do with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding.

    At all times deal with it up!

    This looks good, but I have 2 questions. Does the garlic get combined with the other ingredients and poured over the beef? And do you have to dissolve the bouillion in hot water or just use the cube?

      I was just wondering the same thing! I re-read the directions a few times just to make sure I wasn’t going crazy and skipping a line. I was planning on doing this tomorrow, so I guess I’ll use my best judgment?

    Found this recipe and your blog through Pinterest. I had to try it for my meat loving husband. Made a half batch (as I tend to do with new-to-me recipes) and left out the soda, subbed 3 Tbsp brown sugar…also subbed spicy mustard from a bottle for the dry mustard…and used 1 cup canned beef broth instead of boullion. Came out just the right amount of sweet and spicy…tame enough for my three year old. This is definitely a winner, especially on hot summer days when I love to use the slow cooker! Thank you!

    Friends of ours, are returning from a two week cruise on Saturday and we wanted to have their refrigerator stocked and dinner waiting for them… This sounds like a winner to me.
