BBQ Basics

August 10, 2008

It's official. Being Freeze Happy doesn't have to be complicated. And here's a recipe you'll love. Don't waste time and effort making a complicated bar-b-que sauce (unless you want to...but do you really want to?) . Just grab a bottle or two of your favorite store bought sauce and make it your own by adding a few chopped veggies and garlic.

Crock Pot Barbecue

2 lbs beef chuck roast (or pork roast or turkey breast...yep, your choice)
1 c yellow onions, diced
1 green pepper, chopped (optional)
1 t minced garlic
1 c. water
1 bottle store bought bar-b-q sauce

To Freeze
- Place all ingredients into a gallon sized freezer bag.
- Label bag and freeze.

To Cook
- Thaw in refrigerator.
- Dump contents into a slow cooker. I love lining the cooker with these liners first. They really work.
- Cook on low setting for 6-8 hours, until the meat falls apart easily. Shred the meat with a fork.

To Serve
- Serve on hamburger buns. Add store bough cole slaw and dill pickles for an authentic twist.

How on earth do you find the time to be such a good cook and to also be so creative! Wow! I love all your recipes, the chocolate chip cookies ROCKED! Thanks so much for sharing all of this - I will be using many of them!

Made this last night, delish! The prep time was like 5 minutes which is perfect and it turned out very tasty!

Try this one:
Sear off the meat (optional) in a bit of olive oil.
Put it in an already-heated crock pot. Pour in one can of Dr. Pepper, Coke, or Root Beer.

If you have the time, remove the meat and put the juices in a sauce pan over medium-low heat. Reduce by 1/2. Add your favorite barbecue sauce to taste.

This is my Go To recipe for company. In fact, I'm getting married again (at 60!) and we're having a picnic-reception.
This will be on the menu as sliders, using pork butt.

Great site!
