Today I’m sharing this recipe for Shredded Tex-Mex Barbecue Beef Sliders, made in my new Slow Cooker. Plus a big Thank you to Hamilton Beach for providing a Set ‘n Forget® 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker With Spoon/Lid to giveaway! (Details at the bottom of the post- giveaway over.)
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t had a new slow cooker recipe on the blog since February. We had a little mishap while cleaning the cooking container… Yep, it was dropped! (I’ve been meaning to purchase a replacement insert, but every time I sit down to order it, I keep getting sidetracked. I wonder how that happens?)
I felt incredibly blessed when Hamilton Beach asked me if I wanted to try out their new Set & Forget® Programmable Slow Cooker. Of course I did! They even offered a 2nd slow cooker for me to give away on the blog if I liked it.
Liked it? I big puffy heart loved it! This slow cooker is so much nicer than my old one. (My old one was a wedding gift from 1998, so there were no fancy features on it.) This slow cooker has a programmable timer so you can program the cooking time and the Set & Forget® Slow Cooker automatically shifts to keep warm when the cooking time is up.
With my old slow cooker, I would use a separate digital thermometer to make sure any meats had been cooked to the desired temperature. The Set & Forget® Slow Cooker comes with a probe/thermometer already built into the machine! Set the desired temperature and the slow cooker will change to warm once the temp has been reached.
To test out the slow cooker, I decided to slow cook a small brisket. Love this recipe! It came out so yummy!
