BBQ Beef Sandwiches & Sweet Coleslaw

I unfortunately got a bad batch of meat from the Commissary (go figure) and it did NOT want to cooperate, but this recipe was great nonetheless. You can find the original on My Baking Addiction! There are tons of really great recipes there. Mostly sweets, which in my opinion, makes it all the much better :)


For BBQ Beef Sandwiches
What you need:
  • 3 1/2 lbs. beef chuck roast
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp and 1 1/2 tsp. white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Place the roast in a slow cooker with water. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.

Shred the beef. Remove fat as you shred.

Remove 1/2 cup of broth to reserve for later, if your beef needs more liquid.**I have asked Jamie (the original poster) if the rest of the broth needs to be drained or I will update when I hear back :))

In a medium bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together. 

Stir into shredded beef. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. Adding reserved broth, if needed.
Serve on mini buns topped with coleslaw (recipe follows)

For Sweet Coleslaw:
What you need:
  • 1 (16 oz.) bag coleslaw mix
  • 2 tbsp. diced onion
  • 2/3 cup Miracle Whip
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. poppy seeds (I omitted)
  1. Combine the coleslaw mix and onion in a bowl.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in another bowl until combined.
  3. Pour dressing over coleslaw mix and toss to coat.
  4. Chill for at least 2 hours.
