Nothing is simpler and more tasty than this easy one pot, slow cooked BBQ pulled beef, prepared in the morning and left to its own devices while you get on with your busy day. There’s nothing better than coming home to be greeted by the tantalising aroma of your evening meal ready and waiting.
My slow cooker is a dinosaur of a thing, inherited 3rd hand from my step dad’s mum and yet not a week passes when it’s not out on my , cooking a family meal which will save untold stress and working mum guilt.
One Pot Slow Cooked BBQ Pulled Beef
- 2.2lbs beef joint
- 2 tbsp smoked paprika
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium red onion sliced
- 200ml bbq sauce
- 3 tbsp soft brown sugar
- 2 tbsp cider wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 6 Soft white bread rolls
Cut the joint into two pieces and rub a tea spoon of the smoked paprika over it.
Heat 1 table soon of oil in a large frying pan and sear the meat on all sides then move to the cooker.
Using the same frying pan heat the remaining oil, add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients to the frying pan, heat through for a minute or two then pour over the meat.
Cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low, resisting temptation to remove the lid during cooking as this adds to the cooking time.
When you’re ready to serve, move the meat to a chopping board and shred the meat with two forks then mix with some of sauce and onions.
