CAUTION!! This is NOT healthy haha, but the Caps are playing tonight and pulled BBQ sliders were requested and they were just too good not to post! Plus I think it's good for everyone to have a cheat day every once in awhile so here you go. I got the original recipe from my Grandma who inspired my love for cooking even before I could turn on the stove. Over they years I've changed, added and modified this recipe and tonight I think I really hit the nail on the head. It was delish and boyfriend approved!! The picture is pretty plain as I didn't think to make a coleslaw to garnish on top, but that would be a great addition. It's sweet and savory with a great kick! Oh yeah and will smell your house up all day! Makes a TON of leftovers so bring it into work and impress your co-workers :) I really hope you like this and feel free to make your own modifications, you can't go wrong with BBQ!
Here are your ingredients:
1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce of your choice (I used Sweet Baby Rays: Sweet & Spicy)
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. prepared Dijon-style mustard
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. paprika
2 Tbsp. corn starch
1/2 onion, chopped in large pieces
1 (4 pound) boneless chuck roast
On a large cutting board, chop up your onion and place on the bottom of the slow cooker and reserve a few pieces of onion to place on top of meat. Trim all fat from roast and place into slow cooker on top of the chopped onions. This is important because if fat is left on, it makes the sauce really greasy and you want your sauce to be thick.
In a large bowl, combine BBQ sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, Dijon-style mustard, Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke. Stir in salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and corn starch. Pour mixture all over roast into slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low setting for 8 hours.
Remove roast from slow cooker, shred with a fork and return to the slow cooker. Stir meat to evenly coat with sauce. Continue cooking for an additional hour.
