This slow cooker barbecue recipe makes an easy meal in one pot that's a breeze to put together. This recipe also works beautifully with a chuck roast instead of beef short ribs.


Steps to Make It

  1. Put the potatoes and carrots in a large slow cooker; top with the onion wedges and then the beef.

  2. Combine the ketchup, 1/4 cup water, vinegar, paprika, chili powder, mustard, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, and salt. Pour over the beef.

  3. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or high for 4 to 5 hours.

  4. Transfer the juices to a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes.

  5. Combine the cornstarch with 1/4 cup water, stirring until the mixture is smooth.

  6. Pour into the simmering juices and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute.

  7. Serve the beef and vegetables with the thickened sauce.
