Shredded Beef Barbecue Recipe

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 3, 2013

I did not have time to brown the roast beforehand. Cooked all day and turned out fabulous - perfect bbq flavor for my family & they loved it! Very easy to shred. I did omit water, too.

disappointing. did not really have much of a bbq flavor. it did shred nicely but we had to add bbq sauce to the sandwich to make it tasty.

MY REVIEW

Very easy. Thanks for the tip to omit the water. This fit in my 3-qt slow cooker with room to spare. I don't see how it could feed 12 people, though - it's more like 6 servings.

This is tasty! I don't use any of the water called for in this recipe.
