Slow Cooker Barbecue: Dinner or Game Day Recipe

I will be forever grateful to my sister for sharing this mouth-watering recipe for Slow Cooker Barbecue with me. We had it for a belated Christmas meal with my side of the family, and everyone wanted seconds! I decided to try it out on my own a few weeks later and was pleased to see that it was just as easy to make as my sis told me it was.

This is great for a cozy winter dinner at home, or even served this Sunday for a Super Bowl party! And...bonus for you...I have my first-ever printable recipe here at the bottom of the post!

Slow Cooker Barbecue
adapted from allrecipes.com


1 (14 oz) can beef broth
3 pounds boneless pork ribs (I used 3 pound worth of pork sirloin roast)
1 (18 oz) bottle barbecue sauce (I used a little of both, to taste)
1 bottle of beer (optional)

1. Pour your can of beef broth into the slow cooker (reserve a bit if you won't be adding beer later) and add your pork tenderloin/pork butt/ribs. Cook on low for 6 hours.
2. Remove the pork and shred in a separate dish.

3. Return the shredded pork to your slow cooker and pour the bottle of beer over the pork (or the remaining beef broth).
4. Add a bottle of barbecue sauce. My sister swears by Sweet Baby Ray's, but I added a dash of Jack Daniels BBQ sauce as well. Cook another 2 to 3 hours on low.

Your barbecue will look like this when it's done (not pretty, but pretty darn tasty!):

We served ours on whole wheat rolls with spicy sweet potato fries. I'm normally more of a fan of Carolina-style barbecue, but this was a delicious meal. Even T had seconds, and he is Mr. Monsieur Le Picky.

They're great plain, or even with a little extra barbecue sauce on top!

Whichever way you choose to enjoy yours, this recipe leaves plenty for leftovers!

I'm testing out a new printable option today. Please bear with me...this is the first time I've tried this! I know it's not pretty, but I'll work on the designs as I learn more:

  1. Looks yummy! We tried a version with chicken in the past and it did not turn out well at all. But this one looks promising. :)

  2. So glad you stopped by the Adirondack Chick! I was just looking for a recipe for this.

  3. Looks yummy! We had BBQ sandwiches for lunch Sunday...Henry and Grant liked them so much they both ate two! I didn't cook it though, so I may need to try out your recipe and see if they like it as much!

  4. This looks so yummy! I think the beef broth is super smart - makes the meat juicier.

  5. We make bbq pork in our slow cooker quite often. So easy and SUPER yummy!!!

  6. Yum! Here in Northern California it will be 65 and sunny for the Superbowl, so we are having a BBQ! It's nice to be able to throw open the doors and watch the game inside and relax outside.

  7. Thanks for swinging by my blog! Your barbecue recipe looks delicious! I love Football food, even though I bet this would be good anytime!
