This is a delicious recipe that takes almost no hands-on time at all! I love that I can cook it in the slow cooker and have a delicious dinner at the end of the day. This BBQ Beef recipe has tons of flavor and it is tender and juicy. My family all loves this meal and always eats it well. It also freezes well so that you can save it for a busy night. It also makes the house smell amazing! This recipe works great for a weeknight meal, or for a potluck. It will be a crowd pleaser or sure. I hope you love this recipe as much as we do!


3 lb. Beef Roast

Salt and Pepper

3 Tbl. Olive Oil, divided

½ Onion

1 Tbl. Knorr Beef Bullion

¼ tsp. Cayenne Pepper

¼ c. Water

¼ c. White Vinegar

2 tsp. Dry Mustard

2 tsp. Salt

1 c. Ketchup

3 Tbl. Worcestershire Sauce


1. Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add 2 Tbl. of the Olive Oil. Sprinkle the Roast with Salt and Pepper. Fry the Roast on both sides until it is browned. Remove the meat from the pan and place it in the Crock Pot.
