How to Make Pulled Barbeque Beef Sandwiches

published by Karen Barnes on Feb 19, 2008

One of the easiest pulled barbeque beef sandwich recipes ever.

Pulled beef have become rather popular for making sandwiches. Then adding barbeque sauce to the mix makes for a more flavorful sandwich. I had watched several shows on food network about barbeque and pulled beef.

Many of the people making the pulled beef were using the huge smokers to cook their meats. Since I personally don’t own one of these smokers, I had to figure out a way to cook the meat at home.

One evening before bed, I had placed a beef roast in the Crockpot for dinner the next day. This particular roast was more than my family of three could eat for one setting. That evening before putting the roast away, I decided to pull the rest of the rump roast apart to make barbeque beef for dinner the next day.

My Recipe For Making Pulled Beef Barbeque Sandwiches


  • 1 2-5 pound roast
  • 1 can of beef or chicken broth
  • Crockpot large enough for the roast
  • 1 bottle of your favorite Barbeque Sauce
  • Hamburger Buns


  1. Place the roast in the crockpot. Cover with the broth and 1-2 cans of water. Cook on low overnight.
  2. Remove the roast from the crockpot. You can either let the roast cool enough to pull it apart with your fingers or use two forks to pull it apart.
  3. Once the roast is pulled apart, add one third of the bottle of barbeque sauce to the beef roast and mix. Refrigerate the roast and barbeque sauce for two hours. Repeat this step one more time.
  4. On the second removal of the barbeque beef from the refrigerator, add the last third of the barbeque sauce to the mixture and heat.

Serve with mustard, pickles, and chips.

I make these barbeque beef sandwiches usually from the left over roasts. I have used pork roasts for these sandwiches as well. Just replace the beef roast with the pork roast. The best thing about making your beef or pork barbeque sandwiches this way, anyone can make them without the use of a smoker. Even the busiest of people can do this with ease.

These barbeque sandwiches can be served at parties, family gatherings or even for office parties. When using this recipe for larger groups, for every 2-5 pound roast, you will need to double the rest of the ingredients. Also, an electric roaster, the larger rectangular ones, can be used in place of the crockpot. So the next time you want to try something new for dinner, give this a shot and have fun.
