Slow Cooker Barbecue Beef

READY IN: 7hrs 5mins
Recipe by Pixielicious

I found the original recipe on AllRecipes and made a few changes. I especially like to serve this in the summer, when we're in the mood for barbecue and I don't want to be stuck in a hot kitchen. The original recipe calls for a boneless chuck roast, but I've experimented with different cuts of meat and have found that we prefer the eye of round or sirloin tip. The leaner meats allow the roast to cook without diluting the barbecue sauce.

This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written and we all enjoyed this on sandwiches.
