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.)

This Tex Mex Barbecue Beef Recipe is one of my favorite Slow Cooker meals. It is so simple to throw together and your family will definitely love this one!

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!

    Oh instead of beef, use a turkey :). I was bit by a tick so I am allergic to red meat.

  2. My favorite thing to make in the slow cooker is Tortilla soup, it's super easy and tastes great!

  3. We cook some Indonesian food in crockpot, I also love one time my husband cooked Reuben 🙂

  4. Fave to make in Slow Cooker, is our Red Beans & Brown Rice! YUM!!!

  5. Oh, that sandwich looks delicious! We just made sloppy joe dip in the slow cooker the other night, and it was delicious. I think it will be one of our favorites. I like making just about any kind of chicken in the slow cooker. There are so many yummy ways to prepare every variety of chicken cut.

  6. My favorite recipe in the Crock Pot/Slow Cooker is Buffalo Chicken. This is delish as a main course or as a shredded chicken sandwich. While your recipe above looks absolutely wonderful, my husband cannot process beef (suffers from disease called Gastroparesis – literally translated: Stomach paralysis) very easily, so it is an EXTREMELY rare occasion that I get to cook with it.

  7. This looks delicious! My favorite is a chicken fajita mix – it's sooo good. 🙂 Thanks for linking up to Show Me Saturday. Hope to see you there again tomorrow!
