Beef on a Bun is a very Alberta meal. It is the go-to staple at cookouts and Stampede Parties throughout the summer. Usually, beef on a bun is sliced but I love the ease of Crock-Pot shredded beef. The shredded beef stays moist and it is easier to stretch for a big crowd. Plus when it is in the Crock-Pot, it’s no big deal if you eat a bit later than expected (which ALWAYS happens at our house).
Since you make this in the Crock Pot, it is the perfect make-ahead meal for a big cookout or party. Having a TON of people? Use a few slow cookers and you’ll have enough to feed an army.
Easy Summer Entertaining Menu
Grab buns and make a few delicious side dishes like baked mac and cheese, coleslaw and broccoli salad. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with my Banana Pudding for a crowd, no-bake strawberry cream pie or Coca Cola cake.
