I know some of you already know about my obsession with using root beer in BBQ recipes. Well, it is no different in my winter BBQ recipes a la crock pot. This slow cooker root beer beef bbq recipe is the perfect combination of sweet and heat with a hint of smoke to leave your summer BBQ cravings satisfied.
I started the night before with the root beer bath for my beef rump roast. With all of the I ♥ Beef chatter going on, I decided on beef BBQ.
Slow Cooker Root Beer Beef BBQ
Start by putting your hunk of beef in a gallon Ziploc bag.
Chop up a couple of cloves of garlic.
Grab your preferred brand of root beer. I am sure this is what was on sale.
My trust BBQ spices. Liquid smoke, chipotle Tabasco, Montreal steak seasoning and cayenne pepper.
Pour 1 cup of root beer into a measuring cup. Add 3-4 shakes of liquid smoke, same of Tabasco, 1 tablespoon of steak seasoning, and 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Toss in the chopped garlic too.
Stir together and pour over your beef roast.
I then poured another cup of water on top just to make it stretch a bit farther. Put in the fridge overnight. The next morning, pour it all into a crock pot.
I, of course, am obsessed with seasonings, so I grabbed some rib rub and shook it all over the roast.
Yes, I touched the meat and rolled it over to cover it all with my seasoning.
Then, put the lid on, turn the crock pot on low and walk away for 8-10 hours.
The carving then begins. I, of course, love to use my Salad Chopper to chop my meat. Great little multi-purpose item. I then let it cook for about another hour on low. You could eat immediately, but I like the flavors to really soak in.
