Slow Cooker Pulled Barbeque Beef
Very Good 4.8/5
(13 ratings)

This is a great recipe that can be experimented with. I thought it was good as is. You can Try adding thyme, marjoram, a bayleafor two, ect. Or, for the best and easiest, substitue a good, proven barbecue rub for beef, like Heiffer Dust, which won "Best Rub" at the American Royal a year or two back and is available commercially.
