Spicy Roast Beef Sliders

How about Spicy Roast Beef Sliders instead of the usual Sunday pot roast.  

Shopping list for the dinner

  • Beef Shoulder Roast
  • Slider Buns
  • BBQ sauce
  • Baking potatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Spices listed below

Spicy Rub Recipe

  • 1/4 tsp Chipotle Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Coarse Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp     Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp     Kosher Salt
  • 2 tbs    Light Brown Sugar

Mix above ingredients in a small bowl and rub on both sides of the shoulder roast. Place in crock-pot and cook on low for about 6 hours (or according to the manufacturers directions for your crock-pot).

Once the roast was in the crock-pot, I made a small bowl of spicy BBQ sauce using one heaping teaspoon of the rub mix and  1/2 cup of regular BBQ sauce.  For this recipe I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce. Then I placed the bowl in the fridge to let the  species and the BBQ sauce incorporate. If you like it even more spicy I would suggest adding a few crushed red pepper flakes. I prefer it hot but I usually have to back off a little bit depending on who my victims, I mean, who my guests are for dinner.

After the roast has cooked, remove to a plate or cutting board to cool for a few minutes then pull apart. As usual the roast falls apart before I can get it out of the crock-pot.

Load up the  buns with roast and add a little spicy BBQ sauce on top.

To accompany the sliders I cut up two baking potatoes, tossed with a little olive oil in a large zip lock bag. Then I arranged the potato slices on a baking sheet lined with foil and sprinkled a little salt and pepper on top before baking at 400 for 30 minutes.

To finish off the meal I served bread and butter chip pickles on the side.  My mom said to always have something green on the plate.
