Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Beef

This is a really simple but satisfying meal that pulls together easily with just a few minutes of planning ahead. Throw your ingredients into the crock pot and come home several hours later to an awesome aroma and a great sandwich. Make sure to serve it on some hearty bread like Ciabatta with a thick slice of sharp cheddar and some extra BBQ sauce drizzled on top. Yum!


Pulled BBQ Beef

1 (3 lb) boneless chuck roast

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

salt & pepper to taste

1 (18 oz) bottle BBQ sauce

water, as needed


1. Place roast into slow cooker. Sprinkle with garlic and onion powders. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Pour on your favorite BBQ sauce. Add anywhere from 1/4 cup to 1 cup water (or add a little as you need) to help the meat cook evenly.

3. Cook on low for 8 hours.

4. Remove meat from slow cooker and shred. Return to crock pot and cook for 1 more hour. Add more water if needed.

5. Serve hot with cheddar cheese and extra BBQ sauce over a whole wheat hoagie roll.

  1. This looks amazing! A couple of months ago, I started planning meals for each week and I have wanted to include some crockpot meals. This will be a great addition. Thanks for sharing! I’m stopping over from Marvelous Monday’s hop!

    • Thanks so much for commenting! I hope everyone loves it 🙂 I didn’t count because we grazed off this for several days, but I believe you can get maybe 6 hearty sandwiches from this recipe.
