Beef an bourbon are a match made in heaven in this Honey n’ Brown Sugar Bourbon Beef! I mentioned that I had the bourbon bottle out one Sunday morning, to cook with, of course. It just so happened that not a single stinkin’ one of you on my Facebook page believed me. Sure, it’s entirely possible that I was drinking Old Fashioned’s before noon. It might have happened before and I am sure it will happen again. But oh, ye of little faith! Just because I keep a flask beside my nightstand for a wee little “nip of the golden” once in a while doesn’t mean I’m drinking before noon!
This is a delicious, easy, fix-it-and-forget-it crock pot meal. You would think that my crock pot gets put away in the summertime but oh no, it stays out on my counter or front and center in my pantry. I use my crock pot year round and while roast beef seems so wintery, so very out of season right now, it’s still a favorite for us.
I’ve also wanted to do a bourbon beef for a while and this turned out SO delicious! The sauce is sweet with a hint of bourbon and the flavor just seeps in all day while it’s cooking, what a joy it is to come home to this! Pour yourself a bourbon on the rocks to match it (who needs wine) and you’re set!
Happy cooking everyone!
