Honey n’ Brown Sugar Bourbon Beef

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!

Love you more than bourbon,

    I cooked a 3 pound roast in a slow cooker on low for 6 hours. The taste of the roast was good, but the meat was dry. I like the recipe and will give it another try.. I will cook the roast for 5 hours the next time I make it.4 stars

  2. Kim Jarvis says

    I made this last night and it was sooo good!! I used a sirloin roast so it didn’t pull apart but the sauce made for a perfect au jus. Will definitely make this again.5 stars

  3. Lis says

    Delicious! Will definitely make again…thank you!

  4. Jean O says

    This was amazing. I left out the soy and worstershire sauce and used a brown sugar bourbon that is from a local distillery here in Portland Oregon. I added the brown sugar and melted honey and poured it over the meat, which was with baby carrots and yukon gold potatoes in the crock pot. A few hours later, I made a small batch of the sauce and poured it over the meat again and put a few crumbles of brown sugar on top of the meat and let it cook for another 5 hours. This tastes sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. I will be making this again for sure!!5 stars

  5. Cathryn Marie Hanson says
