recipe: slow-cooker BBQ beef sandwiches

We’re headed into a very specific phase of cooking right now: Comfort Food Season plus I’m Too Lazy And Tired And Sick Of Winter To Make Anything Fancy. It’s the time of year when I become very good friends with my slow-cooker because having dinner essentially “done” by 9am? BEST FEELING EVER.

This recipe is simple and delicious and leaves a lot of room for customization. I keep it basic and use a brand of BBQ sauce we love, but you can use your own favorite sauce from a bottle, a homemade BBQ sauce, or even another kind of sauce (Hot pepper sauce? throw in some spices to give it a Mexican flavor? Whatever! You can’t really mess it up!) The point is: meat in the pot, add sauce, slap it on a bun. DINNER IS DONE.

(I’ve also made huge batches of this for parties and it is always a hit. Serve the sandwiches with a pan of homemade mac and cheese? EASY PARTY DINNER!)

    I remember that you made these sandwiches the first time we came over to meet you guys (in 2009, I think? Or 2008?? either way: MANY ADDITIONAL BABIES AGO, lol) and I asked for the recipe afterward b/c it’s SO awesome. And it’s so easy! We still make it a lot… so thank you! :)
