Sigh. Obviously the above picture is NOT of barbecue beef and beans. And there's a good reason for that. Last night, instead of eating the delicious dinner I simmered all day long in the crockpot we ended up ordering pizza. Why? Because I lovingly cooked my beautiful 3 lb chuck roast for 12 hours in the crockpot with the plastic packaging still attached to the bottom of the meat. So while the dinner looked delicious and smelled delicious it had strings of melted plastic running through it. My brother-in-law John wanted to eat it anyway, but I figured all those plasticy chemicals could not be healthy and tossed the whole dinner :( I had planned to shred up the meat and bake the mixture into calzones, but with that plan out the window I decided to brown up some ground beef and onions, add barbecue sauce and corn and bake THAT mixture into some calzones. But then I opened my refrigerated pizza dough only to find that it was all torn and would not allow me to roll it out no matter how hard I tried. Tired and frustrated I tossed the dough into the trash with my ruined crockpot meal and told Joe and John to order a pizza. Oh well. So my apologies to Stephanie at A Year of Crockpoting for destroying your recipe. I do plan to try it again - with uncompromised meat.
Crockpot Barbecue Beef and Beans
3 pound chuck roast
1 yellow onion, sliced in rings
3 cloves chopped garlic
1 can (16.5 oz) barbecue baked beans
1/4 cup prepared barbecue sauce
jalapeno slices, optional
Place meat in crockpot (AFTER removing all packaging) and add in onions and garlic. Add the beans and barbecue sauce. Cover and cook on low for 8-12 hours, or until meat shreds easily with a fork. Serve on rolls, buns, rice cakes, or over rice (or if you try to make calzones with it, let me know how they are!). Add slices of your favorite cheese and sliced jalapenos.
