Barbecue Roast in a Crockpot


Got some leftover Barbecue Sauce?  

Let me ask you – what do you normally do with it?

I know I always seem to have at least 1/4 of a bottle left after making barbecue chicken and often end of throwing the bottle away.  Seems like such a waste, but after a week of sitting in the refrigerator, it’s time to go.  Can you relate to this?

Well good news!   I’ve got a great recipe for you to use of the remaining Barbecue Sauce – and you don’t even have to get hot at a grill.  That’s because it’s a slow cooker recipe.  That means it’s a super easy fix it and forget it recipe plus it will help you save money by not tossing groceries into the garbage.

The other bonus of this yummy recipe is it’s definitely not your standard roast recipe with cream of mushroom soup.

Here’s what you’ll need for Barbecue Roast in a Crock pot:



  • 2 pound roast (I used English Roast that I got for B1G1 several months ago and have had in my freezer)
  • 2 large carrots chopped or 1 bag baby carrots (2 carrots would be cheaper, but I had the baby carrots in the house)
  • 5 Potatoes sliced (if you would like – you could also serve with rice)
  • 1 large onion or 2 small onions thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce

Step By Step Instructions – No Worries, it is Simple

1.  As I do in most Crockpot Tuesday recipes, I put the meat in the crock pot frozen. If your meat is thawed just shorten the cooking time by about an hour.


2. Put the onions, carrots and (potatoes if you choose) on top of the meat. Since my kids don’t like onions, I cut them up smaller to disguise them a bit. Then sprinkle with the garlic powder and pepper.


3. Pour the Worcestershire sauce and the barbecue sauce on top and place the lid on the crock pot.  As you can see, it does not need to completely cover it to cook it all.

Once again I was late getting my meal started so I cooked it on high for 5 hours (1 hour I used to defrost.) If you start early enough in the day, you could cook it on low for 6 to 8 hours and it probably will be a bit more tender. Even cooked on high the meat was still delicious and not tough.
