Asian Barbecue Slow Cooker Roast

I watched a cooking show on TV a couple of weeks ago.  After writing down three special ingredients needed to make the delicious-looking roast, I was only able to find one ingredient: Asian barbecue sauce (and more specifically, Bibigo brand Korean BBQ Sauce.

Have you ever used Asian barbecue sauce?  I’d never heard of it before!


Place chopped onion and baby carrots in the bottom of a slow cooker prepared with vegetable spray.

Rub one tablespoon of flour over a three-pound chuck roast and seer in a hot oiled fry pan.  Brown on all sides and place over vegetables in slow cooker.

Pour one bottle of the barbecue sauce over the roast.

At this point, I got a little nervous about leaving the roast elevated on top of the veggies all day.  I didn’t want it to dry out.

So, I spooned under the meat and brought most of the vegetables to the top of the roast – leaving the roast down in the barbecue sauce.

Cook on low for 8-9 hours.  I was away from home all day with Spunky Daughter.  When we returned home, the house smelled amazing!

I prepared Deb’s Baked Rice to go with it, and     y   u   m   !!

    I use Asian BBq sauce, also called hoisin sauce all the time Kim, it’s fantastic stuff! I usually mix it with BBq or sweet chili sauce, so good, so easy! I’ve used it on short ribs, pork chops, and chicken, but never on pot roast, I’m sure it’s delicious! Next time look for hoisin, there are usually several brands available in the Asian section of the grocery store. My HH and son would love this pot roast recipe, thanks!

      Thanks for that info, Jenna. I’ve seen hoisin sauce and wondered about it. I made chicken with this bbq sauce over the weekend. It was very good, but we like the roast the best. I hope you and “your guys” like it! 🙂
