Slow Cooker BBQ Beef
This is a quick and easy slow cooker dinner to have on a busy night. Pitted prunes add a nice depth of flavor to the sauce. This recipe makes a lot and is great with our coleslaw served on top.
- 2 lbs lean stew meat, trimmed of fat
- 1 medium onion diced
- 1 cup pitted prunes
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 8 whole wheat hamburger buns lightly toasted
- Add the meat, onion, prunes, and barbecue sauce to a 6-quart slow cooker and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low until the meat is tender, about 6 to 8 hours.
- When the meat is done, shred with two forks inside the slow cooker. Stir well. Scoop the mixture onto hamburger buns and serve.
Make Ahead: The recipe makes 8 servings so freeze some and use for one of your super busy nights. Chef’s Note: Top the meat with our Classic Coleslaw recipe if desired.
