(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and I think this Slow Cooker Sweet and Smoky Beef from The Perfect Pantry sounds great for a summer holiday weekend, so I've included it in the new category for Slow Cooker Summer Dinners.)

For most people summer means you're entertaining more than usual, and when you're having guests for a summer holiday or family weekend I think this Slow Cooker Sweet and Smoky Beef from The Perfect Pantry looks like a perfect dish to make before the guests arrive.  You can serve this chipotle, apple juice, onion, and honey flavored shredded beef on sandwiches or wrapped in tortillas all weekend long.  Lydia says this freezes well, so you might want to double the recipe if you have a large slow cooker.

I hope you enjoy trying this from-scratch slow cooker recipe!  Use this link to get the recipe for Slow Cooker Sweet and Smoky Beef from The Perfect Pantry.

Thank you for featuring this recipe. If you have a large cooker, make a big batch today, and you can feed all of your friends at your holiday picnic tomorrow.
