If you like pulled pork sandwiches (see my recipe, “Laura’s Slow Cooker Pulled Pork”  from June 15, 2009), then you’ll like this pulled beef recipe as well. It couldn’t be any easier to make.

Here’s what you need:

  • 3 lbs. beef (use a cut from the chuck or round)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • ½ stick butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Here’s what to do:

  • Throw everything into the slow cooker and set the heat to low.
  • Cover and cook for 8 to 10 hours.
  • Use two forks to pull the meat apart. As you pull the meat apart, it will absorb the extra liquid in the crock pot.

Now, isn’t that about as easy as it gets? Serve the pulled beef on your favorite burger buns. I like to use hoagie buns and top the meat with Swiss cheese for a great sandwich.
