Recipe by Smoky Okie
This is a classic what some might call BBQ sandwiches. While true BBQ afficianados will certainly deny it the term BBQ, it's sweet tomatoey , beefy tang is always an easy crowd pleaser. Besides being delicious on a bun, it's a wonderful topper for baked potatoes.

I prepared this earlier in the week using a 3 pound arm roast, and reducing the sauce ingredients in 1/2. I added 1 cup of water for the first simmer stage, and then let it boil down while I pulled the beef apart. Because of the size of the roast, I did not have to cook this extra. At the end of the process, I let it cool a bit on the stovetop and then stored it overnight in the refrigerator. The next evening I heated it up for dinner and it was fantastic! What a great alternative to traditional sloppy joes. My eldest ate them the same way she usually eats sloppy's ... mustard, pickle and cheese. Quite yummy!
