Have you heard of this new meal helper called Kraft Recipe Makers? You must check it out! This post is sponsored by Kraft, however, the opinions expressed are genuinely my own. Read on to learn more of my love for this product! Kraft RecipeMakers - Hickory BBQ Beef Your weeknight dinners just got easier. Kraft recently introduced a new line of products to help you get dinner on the table even on your busiest nights. Not only are you feeding your family midweek, you are actually able to offer them impressive chef quality dishes without the sweat and rush.

Included in each box are two sauce packages that add layers of flavor into your recipe. Instead of going through complex steps to incorporate different seasonings and zing to your recipe, Kraft Recipe Makers does it all for you. The first package of sauce simmers with your dish, then the second package is the finisher. And, that’s it! The rest is left up to you so that you can also incorporate fresh ingredients, like produce, protein and grains.

I love that the Kraft Recipe Makers are helpers, and not the whole recipe in itself. It’s nice to still have the freedom of adding what I want to the dish, but also having the assistance to create depths of flavor. Kraft RecipeMakers - Hickory BBQ Beef

Take this Hickory BBQ Beef slow cooker recipe, for example. Typically, I mix up some spices to create a dry rub for my roast. I then get my hands dirty and rub those spices all over the meat to ensure a layer of spice with the barbecue sauce. With the Kraft Recipe Maker for Hickory BBQ Beef, I can eliminate the mess of the rub because the simmer sauce accomplishes that initial layer of flavor for me! Kraft RecipeMakers - Hickory BBQ Beef The only two ingredients you need besides the two sauces included in the Hickory BBQ Beef Kraft Recipe Makers box are the roast and sandwich buns. Kraft RecipeMakers - Hickory BBQ Beef Place your roast in the slow cooker and pour the Brown Sugar & Cider Vinegar Simmer Sauce over top. Kraft RecipeMakers - Hickory BBQ Beef Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Kraft RecipeMakers - Hickory BBQ Beef Remove from the slow cooker, transfer to a large platter or cutting board, and shred with two forks. Meanwhile, remove the juices from the pan with a ladle and set aside. Kraft RecipeMakers - Hickory BBQ Beef Return the shredded meat to the slow cooker and stir in the Sweet Hickory BBQ Finishing Sauce. Heat on high for 15 minutes, then voila! it’s done! Serve on the sandwich buns with your favorite side dish.

Usually, the barbecue sauce heats in the slow cooker with the meat, often lending to a burnt sauce. Not with the Recipe Makers! The barbecue sauce is the finisher in this dish and is added only in the last 15 minutes. No burnt sauce here! Kraft RecipeMakers - Hickory BBQ Beef There are 9 different Kraft Recipe Makers products to choose from. Every box includes three recipes you can follow, however, the sauces are so versatile that you can use them in your own homemade dishes! Here’s a video from Kraft with another idea:

Stay tuned for Part 2 of my Kraft Recipe Makers adventure next month, where I will share how I used one of the boxes to cut down on the prep time in my own favorite recipe. (Pssst…there just might be a giveaway in the next post, too. Just sayin’!) 🙂

  1. I would love to try to make a goulash with their sauces.

  2. Oh wow! How easy 🙂 I’d love to try this!!

  3. I would make a Sweet and Sour Shrimp with Pineapple

  4. I could use KRAFT RECIPE MAKERS Chicken Cacciatore to make stuffed shells.

  5. I would try to make the same recipe you made :).

  6. Easy to see Kraft either paid you to write this review or gave you the product free to try and write a review. The words you used sounded like you were writing for a magazine article, just not “real” in any sense. And your comments were just as bad! They were obviously part of the Kraft reviewers themselves. This whole thing is too damn fake for me or anyone else! Next time use your own words to describe how it all went down instead of words that Kraft obviously supplied you and wrote themselves!

    • Hi Sam,
      I’m sorry you feel this way, however, every little bit of this blog post is indeed real. It is stated at the beginning of this blog post that this article is sponsored by Kraft, but the opinions are my own. They are my real genuine opinions of the Kraft Recipe Makers products and I am very glad to share a quick weeknight dinner option that I love with my readers. If you read my other blog posts, you will notice that this is my voice, not someone else’s words. I would never post an article that were not my true words and opinions. The comments are also from real readers and not staged as you suggested. I’m not sure what you are trying to accomplish here.

      I do sponsored posts here and there to help my family financially (this is my job) but I never accept sponsored work from brands that I do not love using in my own home.


  7. I want to make the Loaded Fajita Quesadillas with the Tex-Mex Chicken Fajita Sauce.
