Super Bowl Recipe Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ

Creating Super Bowl recipes is always so much fun! I know for some, the Super Bowl is about the game…not for me! For me, Super Bowl is ALL about the food!

Pulled BBQ Sliders
This was a version using 3 lbs of pork roast. And, obviously, topped with BBQ sauce.

I am not even a little shy to say that if you make this pulled BBQ recipe for your Super Bowl party, I can guarantee all of your (meat eating) guests will be more than happy, no matter what the outcome of the game is. Heck, the Patriots aren’t in it, so who even cares anyway (honestly though – I think Cam Newton is something pretty special and excited to see what he does in his first Super Bowl).

Australian Grass Fed Beef
This is 15 lbs of beautiful Australian Grass Fed Beef. The flap roast is the large cut in the back, right corner.

I have made this recipe once in my slow cooker, and once in the oven. Both were equally as scrumptious, but for Super Bowl planning reasons, I am sharing the crock pot recipe today. Throw and go is best when you are planning to entertain, or take something to a pot luck.

BBQ Rub seasoning on beef
The easy to make BBQ Rub seasoning is really the key to this recipe!

This recipe is really great because once it is done you can do anything with the pulled meat. Sliders, tacos, empanadas, salads, pizza….seriously, anything!

Oven braised pulled beef
This is a beef version using the flap roast.
