Real Men Cook: Crock Pot Shredded Beef Sandwiches with Horseradish Aioli

It’s REAL MEN COOK day and that’s right, you read the title right “Crock Pot”!  I don’t do a lot of stuff in the crock pot, more so because I like the fresh quick meals.  But I figured since the kiddos are back to school everyone is looking to make dinner in a snap yet keep it scrumptious. These Crock Pot Shredded Beef Sandwiches will do just that. {plus a couple of you requested crock pot meals.. soo here ya go!}

The first time I ever had these Crock Pot Sandwiches was actually at our church small group meeting.  Our small group would meet together weekly and would always start off with dinner together first. It was a time for us to chill together and catch up before we got down to business with God. :)  Since we met every week, us ladies would rotate each week who would make and bring dinner for that week.  Well, I wish I could claim that I made these Shredded Beef Sandwiches, but alas, I cannot. My friend Chelsea made them and they were absolutely incredible.  There is such a deep beef flavor in the shredded beef after sitting all day in the crock pot.  Then you add in the Horseradish Aioli for a slight kick with the crunchy warm bread and WHOA! Awesome sandwich. The best part about this dish is I made it last week and Mike and I were able to get 4-5 meals out of it.  Now, that is a winning dish to me and the gift that keeps on giving. :) I hope you like it, let me know how it turns out.

To get started, pat a 3-5lb. beef shoulder dry.

    I’m drooling!!!!!!!!!! I am pretty sure I have told you before about my obsession with shredded meat. I have wanted to make this for a long while but every time we try it it’s a flop. Could be the cut of meat- but I just printed this off- telling the hubs that this IS on the menu for the weekend. I’m totally dying over this right now- I’m just short of jumping in the car in my jammies to go pick up the ingredients right now.

      hahaha… I can just picture you jumping in your jammies now! {your the weirdo in the carpool line.. arent you? haha} I was drooling smelling it cook in the crock pot. The smell is irresistible, plan to be out of the house while its cooking. :) I hope this one works for you Gina. Just so you know, I used a 3.5lb shoulder and cooked it for 7 hours and it was perfect. :) Let me know what you and the fam think.

    I have got to learn how to use a crock pot! I have one, I just never think to use it…silly me ;) Those sandwiches look absolutely amazing Krista. I love me some good shredded beef, I just usually stick it on the stove for 3 hours. I will need to give this a try, especially since McCormick was nice enough to take the MSG out of their seasoning!

      I know right! I’m like you too, I don’t use it very often but on occasion when I do I think, why don’t I use this more. The house smells awesome and the food is done! So easy! Thanks for stopping by and the sweet comments Lisa.

    Oh heck yes!
    Looks crazy good. Like you & your Mike, I would wind up chowing on this all week. That’s generally how I use my crock pot, to make meals for the whole week. I’ve only once used my crock pot for meat, a roasted chicken. It came out excellent. This looks excellent too. The bread has to be chosen very specially to make this one really rock the house. A nice sourdough baguette. mmmmm.

      Oh Mike, you have to make meat in it more often. Its the best way to tenderize it. Soooo good. I bet that chicken was awesome, I made it once and had great flavor. I hope you end up liking these sandwiches. Definitely make the horseradish aioli, gives it a nice kick.

    This is really good, one slight change I made was replaced the water with beer for a little extra flavor. Let’s face it, a beer goes perfectly with this sandwich

  5. Doug M says

    I used a basic American type ale. It was Audible Ale by Red Hook, it has a little more flavor to it than the mass produced ones (Miller, Coors, Bud). I also threw in some mushrooms too.
