When a Pulled Shoulder is a GOOD thing :)

When it’s a pulled BEEF shoulder, that’s when!

Pulled Beef SandwichAnd SO easy to prepare 🙂


I actually used a recipe for “Beery Roast” by the FABULOUS Norene Gilletz of Gourmania from her Classic Second Helpings Please cookbook.

I switched it up a touch by preparing it in the crockpot and shredding it for these incredible Pulled Beef Sandwiches


1 beef shoulder roast (approx 3 lbs)
1 bottle of beer
Equal amount of ketchup as beer (in my case that worked out to 1  1/4 cups ) Please note that Norene’s original recipe is 1.5 cups of each…sure that would work just as well, if not better 😉


  • Combine beer & ketchup in slow cooker
  • Mix together to form sauce
  • Add roast to sauce, taking care to cover all sides
  • Cover & cook on high for 5-6 hours
  • When done, uncover and wait about 2-3 minutes
  • Using 2 forks, begin to pull apart the meat right in the crockpot (taking care not to burn yourself)
  • Continue until entire roast is shredded and bathed in the sauce
  • Meat can be used at this point or refrigerated & reheated for use at a later point.

To assemble sandwich:

  • Slice a warm mini French bread/baguette lengthwise.
  • Place pulled beef on lower half of sandwich
  • Spread upper half of warm bread/baguette with Garlic Sauce
  • Top meat with shredded lettuce
  • Put together into a sandwich & enjoy!

Thought: I suspect that BBQ sauce would be a very suitable subsitute for the ketchup to add a little smoky flavour…I intend to try & will keep you posted 🙂

Bon Appétit!

  1. Tanya, you can also replace the beer with ginger ale, cola or Dr. Pepper and add 2 TBSP of brown sugar.

    • Thanks for your wonderful tip, Mallary!
