Slow Cooked Pulled BBQ Beef

If you follow my blog you’ll know this recipe is a variation of the pulled pork portion of my Steamed BBQ Pork Buns recipe, I’ve separated the Easy BBQ Pulled Pork portion into it’s own post too.

Pulled meat along with other American classics are very popular right now but I’ve found some of the recipes online to be pretty complicated or that they use vinegar or cider which dries the meat out or worse ingredients we can’t source here.

You’ll be happy to know all of the ingredients in my recipe can be bought in any local supermarket anywhere in Australia! Let me know how you go x



1.2 – 1.5KG topside roast beef (marbled with some fat)
1.5 cups of tomato sauce
1/4 cup of barbecue sauce
1/4 cup of brown sugar packed tightly
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
50g sweet chilli sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

(Tip – Garden variety tomato and bbq sauce is all I used, Rosella, Fountain, SPC any of the supermarket brands will do)


1) Place all sauce ingredients into slow cooker and stir together until mixed
2) Add beef skin side up and set slow cooker for 2 hours on high setting
If using a Dutch oven on the cook top, bring up to boil and reduce to low heat for approximately 4 hours or until falling apart. In oven set to 220c for 30 mins then reduce to 120c for 3 hours or until falling apart
3) Turn beef over and cook for a further 2-3 hours on low setting until it breaks apart easily when pressed with a fork


Sliders are super popular the moment (small rolls usually brioche dough) but the pulled beef tastes just as nice on a toasted or fresh burger bun with some of your favourite cheese, salad items and a sauce of your choice, sweet chilli and mayonnaise are a favourite in our house.

Miss E (14) likes hers served in a wrap with grated cheese, grated carrot and sliced boiled egg

Miss H (5) like hers served by itself with a plate of vegetables, beans, carrots and corn preferably

Mr A (2.5) he’s the food genius, he demanded I serve it on a bed of ‘mashed tatoes’ it was DELICIOUS which brings me to my next post . . . what to do with left over barbecue sauce
