We are huge fans of crockpot recipes at my house. Well, maybe I should say that I am just altogether a huge fan of easy dinner ideas. The ease of them, and the fact that they can basically make themselves, yah … crock pot recipes are a savior when it comes to dinner at our house.

And, it sure helps when the slow cooker can make a slow cooked pulled beef recipe like this. I mean, where can this go wrong? Spoiler alert, it can’t go wrong.

And, I know that this is one of those crazy recipes that use beer, but it’s so good, and the beer cooks off. It’s just a fun and unique way to marinate beef, right? If you’d rather not use beer in your crock pot, you can instead make this really popular easy french dip crock pot recipe. This French Dip recipe is always really popular year round on Pinterest, too. It’s just as awesome!

On another note, if you’re looking for a slow cooker Mexican Beef, you’re in the wrong spot, this pulled beef has nothing Mexican food about it, but you can find a really super Slow Cooker Shredded Mexican Beef right here. It looks delicious, but this pulled beef recipe that I have put together for you below is more meant to be enjoyed in a hoagie and topped with some delicious melted provolone cheese.

These Crock Pot shredded beef sandwiches are a favorite here and are awesome served with a salad or french fries on the side.

Crock Pot Shredded Beef Ingredients:

  • 3 pound chuck roast
  • 2 cans Beef Broth (I use this kind here )
  • 1 can beer (12 ounces)
  • 2 envelopes dry onion soup mix
  • 1 Garlic clove (minced)
  • 2 t sugar
  • 1 t dried oregano
  • 6 hoagie buns

Place Chuck Roast in the slow cooker.

Pour broth, beer, soup mix, garlic, sugar and oregano over the meat.

Place slow cooker on low 8 hours

Remove beef to a bowl and shred with two forks or a handmixer in a plastic bowl

Split your hoagies down the middle, set on baking sheet and fill with beef mixture

Lay slices of provolone cheese on top of sandwiches and broil on low in oven until cheese is golden brown

Ultimate Slow-Cooker Shredded BBQ Beef

As a new mom this dish is on our dinner rotation once every other week or so. But you don’t have to be a new mom to enjoy how simple it is!


  • 1 whole 4-5 Pound Beef Roast Of Your Choosing
  • 1 bottle Barbeque Sauce Of Your Choosing (24 Oz Size)
  • ¼ cups Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cups Ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder


Whisk together all of the ingredients except the meat in the bowl of your slow cooker. Put the meat in there and turn to coat. Cook on low for 8-9 hours or high for 4-5 hours until the meat shreds easily. Remove the meat with 1 hour to go and shred it with two forks, then add it back into the sauce and let it finish cooking the final hour. Serve hot!

Save Money with Cheap Cuts of Meat

Chuck roast can be a real money saver. It can also be super tough. That makes it the perfect meat for your wallet and your slow cooker!

This packet of roast (and several others) came from a trip to our local meat processor. I'd bought a quarter beef from them early this year and I'm pretty sure there were like 8 roasts.

I wrote it down someplace. Probably in a notebook. which is an epic mistake for me. It all needs to be on my computer for me to have a prayer of finding it later. Oh well. that's an ABOUT amount anyway.

That same meat purchase made these other recipes:

That's just the beef roasts used so far. That's not including the other beef cuts.

Beef roasts are great for crockpot cooking. They can be used to make a classic sliced roast beef, delicious pot roasts, cut up for soups and stews and pulled apart for sandwiches.

Prepping for Crockpot Freezer Meals

If you find a large quantity of meat on sale OR you are just doing freezer prep this recipe tastes better if it IS a freezer meal. Or at least you allow the meat to marinate in the other 3 ingredients overnight.

This roast pretty much cooks in its own marinade. I made one immediately and froze a second for later. Both were good, the freezer meal had a bit more flavor. So, even if you aren't prepping for freezer meals. if you can, make two OR allow it to sit in the refrigerator overnight before cooking it.

As far as the freezer meal prep. It's a snap.

  • Mix the broth, garlic, and seasoning in your baggie.
  • Toss in the roast.
  • Label and freeze.

Marinade for Beef Roasts

Steak seasoning, garlic, and beef broth make up your marinade for this crock pot shredded beef recipe. I used Montreal Steak Seasoning. You can use another if you prefer. This one is our fav around here.

You can easily pick up a small canister of it at the grocery or one of the big-box stores. You can also get it online in a larger, cheaper canister. That's the route I started going, simply for saving more money.

You can also make your own steak seasoning. I tried a couple different ones. Let's Dish Recipes has the best copycat steak seasoning I tried.


The first thing to do is cook the beef.

Place the beef in the slow cooker, then add the broth, consumme, Worcestershire sauce, onion flakes and garlic. Close the lid and set the cooker to high for 2 hours.

After 2 hours, reduce to low and cook for another 4-5 hours until it pulls apart easily when pierced with a fork.

When the beef is almost done you can prep any other ingredients you want to add sautéed the mushrooms, shred the cheese, and mix the mayonnaise and horseradish for the spread.

Once the beef is done cooking, remove it from the pot and, with two forks, shred the beef.

Make sure you reserve the liquid in the pot for dipping!

Now simply assemble your sandwiches, and if you are using cheese, pop them into the oven at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Cut the sandwiches in half and serve with a bowl of the jus from the pot.

How to Make Crock Pot Italian Beef Sandwiches:

Start by trimming any large pieces of fat off a 3lb chuck roast then cut the roast into seven or eight big hunks and place them in the bottom of a 6 quart crock pot.

Next sprinkle in a packet of Good Seasons Zesty Italian Salad Dressing Mix. I like this pre-packaged mix because I recognize all the ingredients.

Edited to add: this mix is NOT gluten-free! Use a homemade Italian Dressing mix (halve or eliminate the salt called for in the recipe,) or look for a gluten free mix like Simply Organic.

Add 8oz sliced pepperoncini peppers plus a splash of pepperoncini juice plus 8oz Chicago-Style Giardiniera which you can find in the olive/pickle aisle at the grocery store.

I’d never had Chicago-style Giardiniera, a type of relish made with pickled olives and vegetables that’s packed in herbs and oils, but Ben insisted it go into this dish. I’m so glad he did because OH MY GOSH it is so good! It’s supposed to go over Italian beef sandwiches, but I could have eaten forkful after forkful all by itself.

Because it’s packed in oil though, which would add unnecessary fat to the dish, I scooped out the mix with a fork and let it drain away. You can get Giardiniera that’s packed in vinegar, but I found this style to be a real treat.

Finally, add a can of beef broth then place a lid on top of the crock pot and let it cook on low for 9 hours, or until the beef can be easily shredded with a fork.

Once the roast can be easily shredded with a fork, shred then slip the meat back into the slow cooker to cook in the juices for 1 more hour on low. Scoop the meat onto hoagie buns then slap a slice of provolone on top to melt from the heat of the beef. Serve with extra pepperoncini peppers and Giardiniera, and you’re set!

Crock-Pot Pulled Beef Pot Roast Sandwiches

Over the next two weeks my life is going to consist of rummaging through old cookbooks and dishes, packing boxes, and lots of chaos. Have you ever tried packing up your contents with two eager, pint-sized helpers? Yep, loving chaos.

And now for the big news. Drum roll…

I’m moving into the garage.

Dustin and I are about to embark on a total kitchen demolition and remodel. This means everything must be packed up and shipped out to our tiny garage where I’ll be cooking, in the Florida heat, for the next three months. I won’t leave you guys behind on our journey. In fact, I’m so excited to invite you to join us. My plan is to share little updates here and there (with photos) mixed in with the regular chatter–recipes, DIYs, simple tips. It’s going to be fun.

I’ll admit the whole idea is like a fairy-tale at the moment, until I think about the garage scenario. I know, it’s all part of the whole remodel business, at least that’s what everyone keeps telling me, but Florida is hot (beyond hot) during the summer, and our garage is the hottest part of the entire house. Moving a gas oven in the garage for three months so I can cook food for my family and all my wonderful blog friends here at Live Simply is going to take the word hot to a whole new level. Basically, I’m moving into the world’s first kitchen sauna. I’ll be keeping lots of ice cold kombucha and Frappuccinos on hand. I’ve also decided my crock-pot and Dustin’s grill are going to be my new best friends.

One of my favorite summer meals is a pulled sandwich–beef, pork, anything–as long as there’s perfectly moist shredded meat nestled between a warm bun, I’m there! Pulled beef or pork is a super easy treat to make at home since most recipes require cheaper tough cuts of meats: butts, shoulders, chuck roasts. Not only are these cuts of meat cheaper than a summer steak, they also require slow-cooking to tenderize the meat to the perfect “pulled” consistency. Hello, crock-pot!

Can you see my future over the next three months? Pulled beef sandwiches, pulled pork tacos, pulled everything! Hallelujah!

Crock-Pot Pulled Beef Pot Roast Sandwiches are one of my all-time favorite dump-and-go summer meals. After searing the beef and onions on the stove-top, the crock-pot does the rest of the work, cooking the meat to pulled perfection. After hours of slow-cooking, the most tender pulled sandwiches come together in just minutes with butter, cheese, a bun, pickles, sauerkraut, homemade mayo (I like to add a bit of chipotle spice), and anything else your stomach desires. There’s no overloading these sandwiches, so pile the fixings high.

Crock pot shredded beef sandwiches make dinner so easy!

This meal is one of the best meals to just toss and go. If you know it will be a busy day or maybe you just don’t feel like cooking, this is the meal to serve.

The crock pot does all of the work and you just have to serve it! This beef gets so tender that it fall apart and makes the best sandwich. The beef broth is savory and delicious from being slow cooked all day.

Whether you need an easy family dinner or the perfect Game Day meal, this easy recipe is amazing!
