Slow Cooker Beef BBQ Burger

Slow Cooker Beef BBQ Burger is so perfect during Summer BBQ, but can also be enjoyed anytime you want it. This is a to-die-for beef brisket recipe that is cooked in a slow cooker with a very simple homemade BBQ sauce until the sauce is nice and thick and the meat is deliciously tender and infused with an incredible mix of spices.

We got 6 burger buns at home and we are 5 in the family. Do you wonder who got the extra bun? It was my husband. I thought 1 burger each would satisfy their hunger but because this recipe is so good, they can’t stop eating it.  It’s perfect with those toasty buns with freshly made coleslaw and wedges or fries for sides. We also put BBQ potato ships in the burger for an added crunch. The next day, we eat this Slow Cooker Beef BBQ leftover with steamy rice, and it’s perfect!
