Crockpot BBQ Beef Sandwiches


Beer, cider vinegar, ketchup, and tomato paste form a rich sauce for tender shredded beef in this easy Crockpot BBQ Beef Sandwich recipe.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 12 hours

Total Time: 12 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: 20 sandwiches


  • 4 lbs. beef round steak
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 12-oz. can beer or nonalcoholic beer
  • 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 20 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns


Trim excess fat off round steak and cut into 1" pieces. Combine with remaining ingredients except rolls in 4-6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours, until beef is very tender.

Remove cooked beef from mixture in crockpot. Coarsely shred using 2 forks and place in large saucepan. Add 2-3 cups sauce from crockpot to meat and stir to blend well. Keep warm over low heat while serving into sandwich buns. You can freeze the remaining sauce and use for other barbecue recipes, or serve it on the side for those who like their sandwiches saucy.
