Slow Cooker Barbecued Beef Sandwiches with Homemade Sauce (Recipe Collections)

Slow Cooker barbecued beef sandwiches
Delicious Barbecued beef, made in the slow cooker; recipes from food bloggers.

There are certain recipes that are slow cooker classics, and those are the ones I like to feature in the mini round-ups I call Recipe Collections.  This time I'm spotlighting Barbecued Beef Sandwiches, something that's good all year for get-togethers but especially nice in these waning days of summer when it's too hot to heat up the house.  Each of these recipes is slightly different, and I hope you'll find one that might become your new favorite recipe for Barbecued Beef Sandwiches; just click on the name for each sandwich to see the full recipe on the blog that posted it.

Let's start out with the recipe for Barbecued Beef Sandwiches pictured above that Lori from Recipe Girl found in a Weight-Watcher's publication and featured on her blog, Culinary Covers.  The recipe starts with flank steak that's rubbed with brown sugar and black pepper and then cooked all day in a homemade barbecue sauce mixture and Lori says it's the kind of recipe your family will be asking you to make.

The next sandwich is one that Jamie from My Baking Addiction calls Superbowl Barbecued Beef, and I agree these would probably be a hit at any kind of gathering.  Jamie starts with chuck roast which simmers in homemade barbecue sauce ingredients; then the meat is piled onto mini buns and served with sweet slaw.

The Spicy BBQ Brisket with Healthy Asian Slaw from Danica's Daily features meat with a spicy touch due to the addition of sweet jalapeno or chile sauce in the barbecue sauce mixture.  I love everything about this recipe, including the healthy slaw with Asian flavors.

The CrockPot Barbecued Beef from Color Me Pink features a delicious-sounding barbecue sauce that begins with sauteed onions and garlic, then adds chile powder, brown sugar, and molasses and finishes with canned tomatoes and cider vinegar.  Although it adds a step to the recipe, I like the idea of making the sauce on the stove so you can get it just how you like it.  Christine also tops her Barbecued Beef Sandwiches with a scoop of coleslaw.

This Smoky Slow Cooker Beef Brisket from Sarah's Cucina Bella uses tomato paste, molasses, Liquid Smoke, and Honey to make a delicious-sounding smoky barbecue sauce that sounds like it's just slightly sweet.  Sarah likes to serve this on sandwiches with a slice of cheddar cheese, but Sarah says the meat is also good for nachos and wraps.

Thanks for including my recipe, Kalyn! Great roundup. Now that fall is nearing, I am looking forward to making pulled pork (and it's fun cousin brisket) again.

And here I thought I was the only one who loves the combination of barbecued beef and cole slaw on a sandwich! Great round-up.

Christine, my pleasure!

Lydia, it's obviously a popular combination.

Thanks Kalyn for featuring my recipe and giving me so many more I NEED to try :) I love using my slow cooker year round...even in the summer since it does not heat up the house.
