baked sweet potato with slow cooker bbq beef

Sometimes all you want is stodge. Stodge with sticky sweet tender meat. Slow cooker BBQ beef is a great crowd-pleaser, and you barely need to do anything bar dumping into your slow cooker.

This slow cooker BBQ beef recipe is sweet, sticky and tangy: just the way it should be. By using brisket it naturally forms those strands that are so juicy to eat.

This would work great with a regular jacket potato, but a sweet potato gives it another flavour that’s so interesting. I choose here to roast the sweet potato with cumin which I think gives an earthy smokiness, but experiment with other seeds you have such as fennel or coriander seed. This is also a dinner that scales up or down really well. Served here with a sticky sweet potato and lashings of sour cream, this is a very satisfying dinner that is ready with hardly any effort.

Made too much beef? Not a problem. It freezes brilliantly, and could make a decent filling for an epic sandwich, mix with mushrooms for a super pie, or serve with fresh chilli and tortillas to liven things up.
