Slow Cooker Pulled Beef


– 3 lb. beef brisket, chuck roast or flank steak, trimmed of excess fat – 1 large yellow onion, sliced into large strips – 1 (15 oz.) can, beef broth Shredded beef seasoning: – 1 Tbsp. brown sugar – 1 Tbsp. chili powder – 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce – 1 1/2 tsp. liquid smoke – 1 tsp. cumin – 1/2 tsp. salt – 1/2 tsp. pepper


Step 1

In the bottom of a slow cooker, add the beef broth and onion slices.

Step 2

In a small bowl, add the brown sugar, chili powder, Worcestershire, liquid smoke, cumin, salt and pepper. Stir together until combined - you'll have a wet spice rub with the consistency of a paste.

Step 3

Cover the meat completely with the spice rub, on all sides of the meat. Place the beef on top of the onions and broth in the slow cooker.

Step 4

Cook the beef on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-7 hours.

Step 5

Once cooked, shred with forks on a cutting board. Transfer the shredded beef back to the liquid and onions to keep warm for serving.

Step 6

If desired, serve over buns or rolls for pulled beef sandwiches. Top with your favorite barbecue sauce.
