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:

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. :)

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!

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

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.
