Do you ever have a recipe that happens out of improvising? One day I had the hubs pull out some meat from the garage fridge for dinner. He pulled out a package that we thought was a roast – but it was still in the bag & he didn’t verify first. I came downstairs to get it going & realized that it was stew meat, not a roast that he pulled out. With a quick change of plans, I still tossed it in the cooker & created this Slow Cooker BBQ Beef that was absolutely scrumptious.

So I tossed the beef into the cooker with a couple mini cans of orange soda. That was it. Covered & let cook about 6 hours. Then I pulled it out, placed the meat on a lined baking sheet & brushed with our favorite bbq sauce & seasonings. I broiled for about 15-20 minutes, just long enough to let the sauce caramelize & the edges to char a bit.
We served this on a big burger bun. But you could also serve over rice, in a taco or burrito. The possibilities are endless!
