Slow Cooked BBQ Beef

by Laura

I love any type of bbq sandwich – pork, chicken, beef – it doesn’t matter which kind. There’s nothing like meat surrounded with a sweet tangy bbq sauce.

I usually cook my meat for recipes of this kind in the slow cooker. However, this version for slow cooked bbq beef is done in a regular oven. I think it gives it more flavor cooking it this way. It’s still slow cooked, but doesn’t take all day.

The ingredients for this one are also simple. It’s all stuff I keep in my pantry on a regular basis. This does makes a large amount so it’s great for entertaining or you can freeze half for another meal.

Slow Cooked BBQ Beef


  • 1 (6 lb) beef roast (chuck or sirloin works well)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 12 buns or large rolls


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a dutch oven or roasting pan, place roast and cover loosely with a piece of foil. You want air to be able to circulate.
  3. Place in the oven at 425 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. Then turn the heat down to 350 degrees and bake for 2 hours or until it reaches desired doneness.
  4. Allow meat to rest for 15 minutes.
  5. While meat rests, in a large sauce pan, saute the onion in butter until translucent. Then add in the ketchup, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and bbq sauce. Cook until sugar is dissolved and sauce is heated.
  6. Slice or shred beef and serve with sauce. If shredded, I like to mix in the sauce. Serve on buns or rolls. Serves 12.
