Slow Cooker Pineapple BBQ Beef Sandwiches

After a recent cookbook signing, my sisters and I ate at the cutest little restaurant called Blue Lemon. They have the most amazing sandwiches and I ordered their Chipolte Pineapple BBQ sandwich. It was so delicious and the whole time I was eating it, I just kept thinking that I would have to come home and try to make it for my family. The beef just melted in your mouth and the toasted bun was the perfect compliment.
After lots of experimenting, I think that I have come pretty dang close to a copycat recipe. The longer you let it cook, the better it becomes. The meat had a really yummy flavor and the pineapple adds just a tiny amount of sweetness. So, if you want to mix up your shredded beef sandwiches, give this recipe a try!
Slow Cooker Pineapple BBQ Beef
Ingredients:
1 (2-3 lb) beef rump roast
1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks, juice reserved
1 onion, diced
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon mustard (I used Dijon mustard)
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Directions:
Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Place roast inside.
In a separate bowl, mix together juice from pineapples, onion, vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over roast.
Add pineapple chunks to roast and cook on low for 10 hours or high for 5-6 hours (I prefer cooking longer on low).
When finished, shred meat using two forks (it should just fall apart by this time). Serve meat on toasted buns, topped with your favorite sandwich fixings (I like red onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and provolone cheese).

    I love the Blue Lemon! Can you figure out their recipe for their Butternut squash soup? It was the best I have ever had and I am missing something. Maybe you can figure it out.

      I also am wondering where’s the chipotle? Sounds good anyway, just curious. I don’t want to leave anything out. Did you try with chipotle mayo?

  2. Unknown says:

    Is there no chipotle in this recipe? You mentioned you ordered a chipotle BBQ Pineapple Beef Sandwich. I bet this would be good served with a chipotle mayo on the bun. Im going to try this recipe in my new pressure cooker. Hopefully, it will turn out just as good as in a slow cooker. thanks for sharing!

  3. I made this for dinner last night and all I can say is…YUM, YUM, YUM! I used brisket as my cut of meat, and this is my new favorite recipe. Even my husband who isn’t a big brisket fan (GASP!) loved it! I served ours over egg noodles with a side of cauliflower and it was a wonderful meal. I will definitely be making this again soon! Thank you for sharing.

    I made this recipe yesterday. I used a fresh pineapple instead of canned. Everyone raved so much more than any meal I have ever made in my life. What an amazing recipe. Thank you so much for sharing. It is absolutely perfect for a hot day when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen. I have a feeling that it will be a regular menu dish in our home.

    I have made this several times now and it is always a hit! Our guests raved about it. I have recommend it and your site to many! Thank you so much for sharing!

    I made this last night and it was a hit with my picky eater husband! He had 3 sandwiches! And he doesn’t even like pineapple!

  7. Holly says:

    Tasty, but am I the only one who ended up with sopping buns due to the liquid? Any suggestions on how to avoid this in the future?

    • Cyd says:

      We always dish out these kind of recipes with a slotted spoon, that helps drain excess liquid so your bun doesn’t go soggy!

    Made this a couple nights ago. Absolutely fantastic! Found it on Pinterest (imagine that)! I am not too keen on beef roasts, but this was fantastic! I’ve already sent the recipe to several other people, because I do not like to keep good things to myself. Thanks for posting it!
