Honey n’ Brown Sugar Bourbon Beef


You know, I’m a little disappointed in you all.

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 crockpot meal. You would think that my crockpot 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 crockpot 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,
